Next to no one is a Malia White fan if they’re watching the current Below Deck Mediterranean season. Well, now, people are actually coming to Malia’s defense for the first time. This is because Captain Sandy Yawn took it upon herself to claim that Malia is “secretly gay” in a Cameo video.
She also said that Below Deck Mediterranean producers felt the same way. Who does she think it is? It is NEVER OK to out anyone’s sexuality ever. As a gay woman herself, I assumed Captain Sandy would know a thing or two about that, but apparently, that’s not the case. Now, Malia is responding.
Malia shared a video on Instagram where she said, “My personal life seems to be quite the topic at the moment and I am not on Twitter. I don’t do a lot of Instagram Lives, so I thought I would send out a message in my own words. So, first off, Tom [Checketts] and I have split. The details surrounding all of it, I am trying to keep a little private just out of respect to him and I. Umm, but yes I am single.” She also winked at the camera when she said that. Ugh, Malia, just stop.
Also, how is she asking for privacy when she very publicly shaded Tom very recently. Pot, meet kettle.
Malia continued, “Second, Captain Sandy’s Cameo, I was just as shocked as everyone else. I’m not sure why my sexual orientation is being discussed in Cameos. First off, if I was gay, I would just like to say that it should be my decision when and if to ‘out’ it to the entire internet, but no I’m not, and if I was, I would be openly proud to be gay. I’m a huge supporter of the community and, yeah, I’ll just leave it at that.”
Then, she took the time to very vaguely address the backlash against her. Malia said, “Throughout the years, you guys have watched me fall in love, fall out of love. You’ve seen my relationships. You’ve watched my career happen. You’ve been introduced to members of my family. You’ve seen a lot of my personal side. Some of the good, a lot of that bad. You know, I’ve made a ton of mistakes.” Oh, we know, Malia. We know very well.

“I am only human. I don’t think I’ve been as vocal on social media as some people want me to be or expect me to be, and to that, I just want to say I’m really sorry if I have disappointed anyone with my actions or whatever else it may be, but I am learning, from a personal standpoint and a professional, this is all new to me and I can only hope to grow from each and every experience,” Malia said.
The bosun concluded, “So, bear with me, please. I am listening and I appreciate the feedback even if you don’t hear from it.” Oh, really? Then where’s the apology to Hannah Ferrier? When are you going to own up to completely mishandling the situation and mistreating Hannah in response to her mental health struggles!?

Yes, maritime law is maritime law. I understand that, but why not be open about it and have a meeting with Captain Sandy and Hannah? That would be a way more professional way to handle the situation.
