Gallery: The 10 Douchiest Photos Of Guy Fieri


Guy Fieri
is the worst! I’ve always thought Food Network “chef” Guy Fieri was the worst, in an abstract man I wish that guy would shut his mouth and put on a regular-person shirt way, but now I know very concretely that he is the actual worst. I know that he is the worst because reports have surfaced that Guy Fieri hates gay people. Here is a thing he said, once: “You can’t send me to talk to gay people without warning! Those people weird me out.”

See? The worst. The bright side is that I finally have a reason to post all of these absurdly douchey photos of Guy I’ve been collecting on my computer. More »

Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing Marks A Return To Homophobic ‘Real Men’ Characters

Tim Allen's Last Man Standing Marks A Return To Homophobic 'Real Men' Characters

Tim Allen’s new sitcom Last Man Standing premiered on ABC Tuesday night, drawing jeers from sensible audience members and critics alike. Several took offense to one joke in particular. Mike (Allen) is complaining about the sensitivity training at the school his kids attend. “I just don’t think your kid should go to that school,” he says. “You know how that ends up—Boyd dancing on a float.”

Entertainment Weekly’s Tanner Stransky wrote a post on why the joke is offensive. And he’s right—it’s pretty awful. But the real problem is the series’ larger concern with masculinity, and a growing trend in returning to so-called traditional gender roles. More »

Leisha Hailey And Camila Grey Chastise Southwest Airlines For Homophobic Discrimination

Leisha Hailey And Camila Grey Chastise Southwest Airlines For Homophobic Discrimination

If a business is going to discriminate against a lesbian couple, they’d perhaps be wise to avoid discriminating against one of the most high-profile lesbian couples around. No such luck for Southwest Airlines, however — on Monday L Word star Leisha Hailey and her girlfriend Camilia Grey were escorted off a flight for “inappropriate behavior.” Meaning: a brief and innocuous kiss — you know, like the way that couples do.

Patti Stanger AKA The Millionaire Matchmaker Gets Her Own Hot Dog

Would you eat a hot dog named after Bravo’s own Yente for millionaires, Patti Stanger? If you’re in Los Angeles, you totally can. Papaya King in LA is offering a Patti Stanger-endorsed gluten-free hot dog, features two chili dogs topped with onions, mustard and sauerkraut, wrapped in butter lettuce. For just $4 you can have this and a medium soft drink — but what’s four bucks to those in the company of Patti Stanger? More »

Camp Week: Is This the Most Uncomfortable Camping Sketch Ever Made?

Camp Week: Is This the Most Uncomfortable Camping Sketch Ever Made?

Contrary to what the Jack and Jill trailer would have you believe, I remember a time when Adam Sandler at least tried to create funny characters. Then again, which campers here remember SNL‘s “Canteen Boy,” the nature-fanatic assistant scoutmaster who displayed acute characteristics of Asperger’s syndrome? To refresh your memory, most Canteen Boy sketches revolved around Sandler’s character being teased by fellow scouts for being a slow idiot. Yikes, SNL. More »

Crushable Quoteable: Tracy Morgan Continues to Apologize for Homophobic Remarks

Crushable Quoteable: Tracy Morgan Continues to Apologize for Homophobic Remarks

Tracy Morgan is still dealing with fallout from the homophobic tirade he unleashed at a stand-up show last week. He offered yet another apology today — and it’s one that, frankly, seems genuine and fully remorseful:

“The truth is if I had a gay son, I would love him just as much as if he was straight. I might have to try to love even more because I know of the difficulty that he would have in society. Of all the sicknesses, there is probably none more abusive than homophobia. More »

KD Lang, Indigo Girls, And Faggots: A Guide To The Palins’ Confusing Facebook Homophobia

KD Lang, Indigo Girls, And Faggots: A Guide To The Palins' Confusing Facebook Homophobia

“Wow,” we thought when we read Bristol Palin‘s well-reasoned, thoughtful (no jk) response on Facebook this weekend. After Margaret Cho went public with news that her new best friendie Bristol Palin was forced into Dancing With The Stars by her mother, we expected an outraged rebuttal. After all, it doesn’t even really make sense: didn’t Bristol flaunt her short dresses and Sarah Palin-mocking outfits on the first episodes? More »

More On Willow Palin’s Horrible Facebook Homophobia

More On Willow Palin's Horrible Facebook Homophobia

Yesterday we mentioned the controversy that befell 16-year-old Willow Palin after she posted homophobic remarks on a Facebook thread about her mom’s new TLC show. The story’s been picking up steam in the national media, partly because of the lack of an official statement or apology from any of the Palins.

The Inter-quarrell began when one of the Palin kids’ Facebook friends updated his status to express his opinion that Sarah Palin’s Alaska “is failing so hard right now.” Bristol Palin responded immediately, and little sis Willow jumped in soon after. Willow used the words “faggot” and “gay” in the pejorative to attack kids who disparaged against her family’s TV efforts (Dancing with the Stars included). She also called one kid, named Matt “effin fat as hell,” to which he responded: “& hello nice to meet you too Willow, I have Crones (sic) disease and am steroids for my stomach causing me to gain weight. I take them twice a day to stay alive, I know I’m not the skinniest person alive, but you started the shit.”
