Vivica A Fox has apologized for stating that gay men were not welcome at the all-male strip club she is producing in Las Vegas.
Last week, the actress appeared on The Breakfast Club radio show, and was asked about men being allowed to attend “Black Magic,” which Fox hosts at the Plaza hotel and casino.
“Aw, hell no,” Fox replied, “Back all that up. No! No!” She added, “There’s no need… It’s called the ultimate girl’s night out for a reason.”
After she got slammed in the media, though, Fox tweeted a classic Hollywood non-apology.

“I’ve been a FRIEND n supporter of the LGBT community for years!’ she said. “My intention was not to offend anyone and I’m woman enough to apologize if you felt that way.”
“My show has already been taped, and I was just doing something for the ladies,” she added, “but all are welcome to enjoy Vivica’s Black Magic Show! It’s HAWT… I’m all about LOVE not HATE dawling! Have a blessed day.”
Jean-Clause LaMarre, Black Magic’s director and producer, criticized Fox’s original remarks, claiming, “the comments were out of order, and it does not represent our attitudes toward the LGBT community. All are welcome.”
He added that he would no longer work with Fox.
