【不只一次?】Eric Kwok 問參賽者性取向惹爭議 藍奕邦發千字文鬧爆

郭偉亮(Eric Kwok)擔任ViuTV選秀真人騷《全民造星》嘅導師,佢早兩日喺社交網站上載節目相並留言話:「This was a memorable day. I’ll never forget when I walked in the room, the first thing I asked these boys was, “Raise ur hand if you are not gay!」(這是一個難忘的日子,我永遠不會忘記當我行入房間,第一件事就係問班參賽者,如果你唔係性戀者就舉手!)。呢個留言引起大眾及同志團體不滿,Eric Kwok遭受批評,事後佢刪咗個post,再抱歉及澄清自己唔係恐同,佢好尊重同性戀者為平等而奮鬥,只係想教參賽者點樣應對記者嘅尖銳問題,問班參賽者只係想睇佢哋可以有咩反應。

喺噚晚,身在外地嘅藍奕邦喺社交網站以英文撰寫公開信俾Eric Kwok。

藍奕邦話寫呢封信嘅原因係佢想藉住呢個機會向佢同埋所有人講下LGBT嘅問題,因為呢班人每日都要面對欺凌及歧視,尤其係喺工作場所。同埋藍奕邦喺佢個人經驗嚟睇,Eric Kwok係慣犯,呢個唔係一次性嘅無心之失。

其後,藍奕邦喺信中憶述佢好耐之前已經好期待同Eric合作,私底下傾偈亦都好友善,不過當面對大眾或者媒體嘅時候,Eric Kwok就會開始取笑佢嘅同性戀笑話。起初佢都冇為意,不過幾次之後,佢就覺得Eric Kwok係有敵意,覺得係被欺凌。

佢同Eric做嘢之後佢心入面都會有好多疑問,例如點解Eric Kwok每次都要咁做、Eric Kwok係唔係好憎佢、佢係唔係恐同、自己係唔係得罪咗佢等等。自此之後,佢開始好怕同Eric Kwok一齊工作,好驚佢講嘅嘢會令自己陷入尷尬嘅地步。

之後,藍奕邦想問Eric

- Why have you been so obsessed with my sexuality all these years?(點解你多年嚟咁關注我嘅性取向?)
- Why are you so fascinated by other people’s sexuality?(點解你咁留意其他人嘅性取向?)
- Why is being gay such a huge issue to you even to this day that you had to make it the first thing you asked your contestants?(點解同性戀係一個問題大到令你要第一句就問班參賽者?)
-Why you also had to specifically make a post on social media about that fact you questioned people about their sexuality?(點解你要特登喺社交網站出一個問人性取向嘅po?)
-Why do you take so much pride publicly in your ability to guess who are the gay contestants even when they weren’t ready to share that information?(點解你要咁公開咁估邊個係同性戀參賽者即使佢哋仲未準備好公開呢啲資料?)
-And most of all why do you find all this to be so funny?(點解你覺得呢啲嘢好有趣?)

之後,藍奕邦仲話要其他人公開同性性取向係一個邪惡嘅行為,覺得好似迫人哋出櫃。呢個做法係古老、野蠻同不可接受。Eric Kwok咁樣喺媒體上做係一個好差嘅例子,因為咁樣會令香港觀眾覺得繼續攻擊同性戀係冇問題,同性戀仍然係一個禁忌。

仲話其實最主要Eric Kwok喺share呢件事去社交網站嘅態度、語氣及方式,俾人嘅印象係性取向仍然係可恥同可笑,雖然LGBT每日都努力去改變。

藍奕邦覺得Eric Kwok唔使同佢道歉,淨係希望呢件事之後佢可以改變同埋停止刻板印象。同埋一齊通過接受、學習及努力,終有一日唔會再有爭議性嘅問題。

唔少網民睇完公開信後,都紛紛留言表示支持,同大讚藍奕邦勇敢同講得好好!
