Did Jerrod Carmichael just say he was gay? That’s what many are saying after a trailer for his upcoming HBO special “Home Videos,” hit the internet.

In the clip, Carmichael talks to his mom Cynthia about her past relationships. During the topic of his mom being cheated on by her husband, he asked his mom if she was ever attracted to women. That’s when he came out and said he had hooked up with men in the past.

“I’ve hooked up with dudes before.”

It seems like Cynthia was phased by it and replied, “Well, OK. That’s your option. I like men.”

I say parents know the kids and she may have expected that her son was gay. That’s not all, Carmichael has talked about interracial relationships, R. Kelly and the Black experience. Check it out below!
