Is it Possible to Over-Apologize For Using a Gay Slur? Jonah Hill Points to Yes

Jonah Hill the tonight show 2014Jonah Hill apologized on both Howard Stern and The Tonight Show for calling a photographer who was following him around a f*ggot within one day of the news breaking.

He honestly seems to feel bad enough without any help from us, and will probably continue to beat the dead horse-shaped piñata of shame for another week.

Hill has made a few strange comments during his lengthy apologies, like “I didn’t mean it in a homophobic way” and “I’m leaving here to go to spend the day with one of my closest co-workers and best friend, who is gay.”

Two of the most cliché excuses for throwing around the other f-bomb and the n-word too. I have a gay/black friend, and I didn’t mean it that way.  Continue reading “Is it Possible to Over-Apologize For Using a Gay Slur? Jonah Hill Points to Yes”

Chris Brown Threatened To Bust a Cap in Frank Ocean

Chris Brown gun takersThere’s little question that Frank Ocean was “the victim” in the Chris Brown parking lot feud. He stayed behind to talk to the police, refused to press charges and even forgave Brown in a peace-themed Tumblr post.

New details from the official police report have everyone wondering how a 25-year-old could harness such restraint and maturity.

In the report, Ocean says Brown’s entourage kicked him while he was on the ground and hurled homophobic slurs at him as he was told “We can bust on you too!” (bust as in, shoot) by Chris during their three-minute fight.

Charlie Sheen’s Apology and Reason For Using The Other F-Word

Charlie Sheen mayor of Los AngelesCharlie Sheen cheekily tells TMZ that he meant to say “maggot” instead of “faggot” at the opening of a rooftop bar he co-owns because he has a speech impediment.

Sheen originally caused a mini uproar when he said, “Lying bunch of faggot assholes, how we doing?” to a crowd at Epic inside El Ganzo hotel in Cabo San Lucas.

“I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp,” he explained.

The rest of his apology (“I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone”) was sadly lacking in warlock or Vatican assassin talk. Maybe next time?

Cleveland DJ’s Advice – Screw Those Gays Straight!

GLAAD is asking that Clear Channel and Cleveland radio station WMMS suspend morning DJ Dominic Dieter for his ignorant comments. After reading an email from a listener who saw his teen daughter kissing another girl Dieter said,

“You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight.”

First of all, who listens to the radio anymore? It is literally the worst thing ever unless it’s Howard Stern or Aisha Tyler’s Girl On Guy, which doesn’t count because it’s a podcast.

He should probably be more than just suspended from 100.7 FM’s “Rover’s Morning Glory” show.  He told a father to get a friend to have sex with his daughter, with thousands of people listening?

A Million Moms Vs. The Urban Outfitters Catalog

Urban Outfitters has come under fire by a group that would be completely irrelevant if we (me included) could stop helping them enter the spotlight.

I’m talking about One Million Moms, who have in the past rallied over use of the word “bitch” in the ABC show reviewed below, “pornography” in The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and Ellen DeGeneres appearing in JC Penney ads.

Lately they’re upset over two women kissing in the latest Urban Outfitters catalog. A message on their websites reads:

“WARNING! The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days. On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace!  Continue reading “A Million Moms Vs. The Urban Outfitters Catalog”
