Ginuwine Refused To Kiss A Trans Woman On Live TV And Now The Internet Is At War

Ginuwine, real name Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, is a 47-year-old American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. He was one of R&B’s top artists between the late 90’s and the early 2000’s. But recently, Ginuwine entered the spotlight once again after he turned down a kiss from a trans woman.

It was on Celebrity Big Brother where Ginuwine was seen refusing a kiss from fellow housemate India Willoughby.

The show airs twice a year and just recently Big Brother launched an all-female cast of celebrities in order to commemorate 100 years of women’s right to vote.

India Willoughby is a 51-year-old broadcaster and journalist. She is also a news presenter on BBC and is the first trans woman to lead an all-female talk show.


It was on an episode of Celebrity Big Brother UK when a trans woman by the name of India Willoughby asked if Ginuwine would ever date a trans person.

India went up to Ginuwine and asked: ‘you would date me, yeah?’ to which Ginuwine responded, ‘not if you were trans.’

Despite his answer, India tried to swoop in and place a kiss on the ‘Pony’ singer’s cheek, which he promptly denied. At the refusal, India could be seen storming out of the set.
