Celebrities who were blacklisted for hating on gays

gay, Mel-gibsonWhile the rest of the nation supported Jason Collins when he became the first gay athlete of any of the four major sports to declare his homosexuality, there are others who have, and continue, to suffer the intense backlash for spewing anti-gay invectives in recent years.

This is a complete reversal from nearly 20 years ago when Ellen DeGeneres was ostracized and had her sitcom pulled from under her feet when she came out in the mid-1990s. And this is a far cry from the time when comedians Eddie Murphy and Andrew Dice Clay made homosexual jokes a routine part of their standup shows.

The penalties suffered for imprudent spillage of hateful comments about gays are swift, severe and sometimes permanent.

Time will only tell if ESPN senior reporter Chris Broussard will suffer any adverse actions as a result of this statement on “Outside the Lines”:

“I’m a Christian. I don’t agree with homosexuality. I think it’s a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is…. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be … that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ.”

 

Now, instead of making money off of anti-gay jokes and invectives, folks have lost money, been fired from shows, had their concert tours cancelled and have pretty much been blacklisted from the airwaves for indefinite periods of time.

Take a look at the following celebrities who have been blacklisted for hating on gays.

    For the record, it was T.R. Knight (who is indeed gay) that Isaiah Washington initially called a “f****t”, not Patrick Dempsey. I think that the word just came up again in a dispute with Dempsey afterwards. It’s hard to really make a judgement call, because there’s so much ire and speculation around it… But it was still a dumb move on Washington’s part to fan the flames.

    Fags love to censor free speech. Moreover, they hate on anyone not promoting their sick lifestyle and love of sodomy.

      Jon. We don’t want to censor free speech. Also you are incredibly ignorant and uneducated. More heterosexual couples are performing sodomy, than the Homosexuals. So next time you post something on the Internet where everyone can see how much of a tool you are. Maybe read up and get some facts so you don’t seem like a complete and total ignoramus!

      Have a magicaly fabulous day Jon.
