Bret Easton Ellis Says He Was Banned from Attending GLAAD Awards

Ellis

The GLAAD Media Awards were held in Los Angeles on Saturday night and author Bret Easton Ellis, whose rancid past tweets that Matt Bomer is too gay to play a heterosexual and that Chris Colfer and Glee give him fright of catching HIV have landed him in hot water, claims he was banned from the GLAAD awards.

Be_ellisWrote Ellis in a series of tweets:

"As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married I'm sad to hear I've been banned by GLAAD from attending tomorrow's event... GLAAD is supposedly "furious" about my tweets. And I'm guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or how sexy I think Adam Driver is... It's GLAAD's party and they can invite whoever they want, but as the guest of someone invited who was told today she can't bring me, well... After GLAAD banned me they told the friend who was bringing me to the event to WARN "Bret not to go public or TWEET about this decision..." Bill Clinton signed DOMA and Don't Ask Don't Tell and cheated on Hillary. I dissed Glee and Matt Bomer as Christian Grey. GLAAD: RIGHT ON!"

GLAAD vp of communications Rich Ferraro told the Hollywood Reporter:

"GLAAD spoke with the guest who was planning to bring Bret about some of Bret's recent remarks, which the gay community responded negatively to. We also asked for a time to sit down with Bret. They decided to replace Bret with a different guest and there has been no response to the offer of a meeting. We hope his tweets don't overshadow the high-profile allies and everyday LGBT people who will be onstage tonight advocating for equality in the Boy Scouts, marriage and across the country."

Prepare Yourself, Lindsay Lohan's New Movie is On Its Way: VIDEO

Canyons2

The mostly crowd-sourced thriller The Canyons written by Bret Easton Ellis, directed by Paul Schrader, and starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen has busted out of the gate with a 70's-style retro teaser.

At this point it's hard to tell what the ultimate project will look like, but the filmmakers say two more teasers "made to resemble 1950's melodrama and 1930's comedy" are on the way soon.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Bret Easton Ellis Blasts Dharun Ravi 'Witch Hunt', Blames Parents

Ellis

Bret Easton Ellis chimes in on the Dharun Ravi trial:

"Dharun Ravi might be a jerk but if a jury convicts him because Tyler Clementi killed himself then the US justice system is seriously f**ked...If Tyler Clementi had not killed himself we would have never heard of Dharun Ravi. This is a witch hunt pure and simple and it sickens me...Bullying=Suicide? Personally I blame the parents and an entire culture that indulges a childproof world where pain and losing doesn't exist....I was bullied. It was awful. But I learned a lot. I learned how to cope. It taught me things: people are cruel, the world sucks. I grew up."

The jury deliberated for four hours today and will begin again on Thursday morning.
