Richard Simmons took to Facebook on Tuesday to address recent rumors regarding a gender transition and also the shooting in Orlando.
“Some tabloids have recently falsely reported that I am transitioning,” Simmons said in the statement. “In response, I feel compelled to set the record straight and refute these lies. Although I am not transitioning, I have and always will be supportive of those who are going through their journey.”
“We should not lose focus on showing love, strength and compassion to all of the LGBT community during these tragic times. My broken heart and healing thoughts are with the people of Orlando and all other victims of prejudice, bigotry and hate.”
Well put, and now the rumors can rest.0
