VIDEO: David Hernandez on Ellen
American Idol castoff David Hernandez appeared on the Ellen show on Monday to address the rumors and sing a song. The former male stripper also said he knew he did badly last week, but did not expect to go home.
As you may see, the rumors Hernandez is addressing are those about his stripping, not about his sexual orientation. If in fact he is gay, he decided to remain tight-lipped about that.
The fact that Hernandez was a stripper in a Glendale gay bar is hardly a rumor at this point as the owner of the bar recently confirmed Hernandez was indeed one of his employees and there are also images from the venue to prove that.
Herhandez expressed disappointment over the fact that his work as a stripper would matter in a talent competition.
What Hernandez may have had to realize is that "American Idol" is more of a popularity contest rather than a talent competition, and over 40% of Americans still hold very prejudiced views on the issue.
