During a Wednesday appearance on Ellen, Magic Johnson opened up about his 24-year-old son EJ coming out as gay. “I think it’s all about you not trying to decide what your daughter or son should be or what you want them to become. It’s all about loving them no matter who they are, what they decide to do,” he explained. “And when my son came out, I was so happy for him and happy for us as parents.
We love him. EJ is amazing. So you got to support your child, because there are so many people who try to discriminate against them, so they need you to support them.” The former NBA star added, “Because if you don’t support them, who is going to support them? And love them?”
