B. Scott, the transgender suing BET for discrimination, and told the courts that his struggle is similar to Sofia’s in The Color Purple. TMZ found his court deposition and where he makes this bold comparison.

"I feel like Sofia in 'The Color Purple.' 'All my life I had to fight!' Because of my experience with BET, it led me to the realization that I am transgender because of my gender identity and expression, it was specifically because of my gender and not my sexuality that made me a target." 

Is this outrageous?
