Taye Diggs Clarifies Comments About Having a Biracial Son

Taye Diggs is speaking out to clarify some comments he made about his biracial son Walker, whose mom is Idina Menzel.

The 44-year-old actor said that he hopes society doesn’t view him as “black” so that there is not confusion over his mom being white.

“When you [call biracial kids black], you risk disrespecting that one half of who you are and that’s my fear,” Taye told TheGrio.com. “I don’t want my son to be in a situation where he calls himself black and everyone thinks he has a black mom and a black dad, and then they see a white mother, they wonder, ‘Oh, what’s going on?’”

Taye later took to Twitter to share a clarification of his comments.

“I am a proud black man. I want my son to grow up to be a proud black man if he so chooses. He has a mother who is white. He has every right to be just as proud of his mother’s ‘blood’ as well. Please wake up, people. It’s not that deep,” Taye said.

Idina Menzel Predicted This 'Let It Go' Mess Up Would Happen on Tour! (Exclusive Video)

Idina Menzel kicked off her world tour this weekend in South Korea and she had a minor mess up during “Let It Go,” as she predicted in this exclusive video for JustJared.com!

The Frozen star, who celebrated her 44th birthday on Saturday (May 30), told us three things fans can expect to see or hear at her concerts.

“One would be some kind of screw up, whether it be lyrics or just something silly happening, which I’ve learned to welcome because then each city has their own mistake and that lets me off the hook,” Idina joked.

During the first show of the tour, Idina was entering the bridge of “Let It Go” and skipped a line of the song. She acknowledged the mistake to the crowd before continuing with the song and even singing a whole verse in Korean. Despite the tiny error, the crowd still loved it of course!
