Christian Actress Sacked for Comments About Homosexuality Files Discrimination Suit

Seyi Omooba was fired for disagreeing with mainstream beliefs on homosexuality.

CHRISTIAN TODAY —

The case of a Christian West End actress who was sacked after sharing her beliefs about homosexuality is being heard at Employment Tribunal this week.

Seyi Omooba was fired in 2019 from the lead role of Celie in a production of The Colour Purple in Leicester over a four-year-old Facebook post in which she said she did “not believe you can be born gay” or that “homosexual practice is right.”

At the time of her firing, Miss Omooba was a rising star in the theatre scene, having had roles in Hadestown at the National Theatre, Little Shop of Horrors and Spring Awakening, as well as playing the part of Nettie in the Cadogan Hall production of The Color Purple.

Last year, she said her sacking had effectively ended her acting career. 

“Since I lost the role as Celie and was fired by my agency I have not been employed,” she said.
