The testimony from Jeffrey Irving came Thursday in the fifth day of testimony in the trial of  Ravi, who is charged with invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and other crimes.

Irving says Ravi seemed uncomfortable with the possibility that his roommate was gay.

Ravi's roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide days after the alleged spying in September 2010.

The man prosecutors say was secretly watched via webcam while kissing Clementi in a dorm room could testify as early as Thursday.  The man, who has been identified only by as M.B., has been mentioned often in the first three days of testimony in the trial of the 20-year-old Ravi.
