Nasser Sultan has slammed former Married At First Sight co-star Ryan Gallagher over his alleged homophobic remarks.
“I don’t go on stage, in front of people, and call people names and put them down to be a comedy act… I’m not a fan of Ryan… He’s a pig,” the reality star told Kyle and Jackie O.
This follows leaked audio from Ryan’s recent stand-up gig in Sydney where the comedian took aim at his former spouse, before making homophobic slurs about Nasser.
The skit saw Ryan put on a feminine voice with a lisp, referring to Nasser as ‘Nather,’ before saying: “Let me tell you a few things about Nasser, and I’m going to stand up for this one… Nasser is a 51-year-old guy that lives in Surry Hills, rides a scooter and told us all that he sits down to p**s, which he’s very open about.”
“Where I come from, we hold hands, we kiss,” Nasser said in response to his ex-costar’s claims. “I don’t go around and degrade them (the LGBT community)… and I don’t use it as my entrance to interviews… That comedy act is very short-lived. Australia’s going to back this up,” he said before proclaiming that Australia has a “social problem”.
Kyle and Jackie O then invited Ryan to the call, prompting Nasser to hang up immediately.
Ryan responded saying, “He set up those photos [featuring Nasser with a younger male companion]. I never said anything about him being gay or straight. What I’m saying is that he set up those photos, making it look like he was gay for money, that’s what I didn’t like. I told him that and he got angry. He hates me.”
After both men threw insults at each other, Kyle revealed that Nasser did have a girlfriend during his time on Married At First Sight. “I’ve spoken to her. She had no idea that he was doing a TV show where he was marrying someone else. She was shocked and she gave him the a**, and never wants to speak to him again.” You will be shocked at Nasser’s response!
