During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 54-year-old openly gay man said he was bullied for his sexuality growing up.

“I had a rough childhood growing up — very rough,” he said. “Oftentimes I wanted to kill myself as a kid. You know, I was bullied because I was gay. And then I was bullied because I was black going to an all-white school later on.”

Now, looking back, Daniels said, “Thank God I didn’t kill myself, huh?”

“I think that the universe took care and God took care of me. I am the product of that environment,” he explained.
