site finds Idol 4’s Anwar Robinson is a “man seeking a man” in his personal ad.
If American Idol 4 gets any gayer, we’ll have to start calling it Manhunt. That’s because yet another contestant has been identified by online reports as gay. AfterElton.com’s John Chiklis found a personal ad that shows that “Anwar Robinson, clearly identifiable from photos (the same photos which have also been used on a few of his fan sites), lists in his profile that he is a man seeking a man.” Lest people argue that this is a fake, AfterElton.com reports that “BlackPlanet.com indicates that Robinson’s last login was January 1, 2005, before the contestants for the fourth season of American Idol were made public. No one knew at that time that the schoolteacher from East Orange, New Jersey would become one of the finalists on the popular Fox reality series, which makes it unlikely to be a fake profile set up by a fan (or detractor) of the popular singer.”
