British Rugby Star Zak Hardaker Says He’s Now 'A Better Person' After 5 Game Ban for Anti-gay Slur

British Rugby Player Zak Hardaker, who was punished with a five-match ban for calling a player a “f—king fag” in late May, says that his suspension and subsequent work with the LGBT community has made him “a better person now.”

Attitude reports:

Hardaker recently asked to train with the LGBT rugby team The Manchester Canalsiders, and says he has “learned what you can and can’t say” from the experience.

“I try to enjoy myself and live life to the full,” said the 22-year-old player. “Along the way you learn new things and this is one of the lessons I have learned. The Canalsiders have been terrific and at least some good has come out of what happened.”

He continued: “They recognised it was just a heat of the moment comment and I am really thankful for their support. I think it has helped to raise certain issues, including the profile of the club, so that’s great. I have learned what you can and can’t say and how it affects different people.”

Earlier this week, Hardaker also met with other members of Manchester's LGBT community to learn about the impact of homophobia.


Nash Grier Kisses Gay Fan After Being Slammed For Homophobic Slur: PHOTO

Grier

No doubt in response to the fallout from his homophobic Vine that went viral, social media star Nash Grier decided to kiss a gay fan in an attempt to show he has love rather than antipathy for the gay community. The fan shared the experience on Snapchat and later on Tumblr, saying: "To all the people complaining about Nash being a homophobic who’s against gays; He willingly kissed a boy just for a snapchat story on top of apologizing twice."

What do you think of Grier's attempt to kiss and make up? 


Nash Grier, Vine's Most-Followed User, Slammed for Homophobic Slur: VIDEO

Grier

Vlogger Tyler Oakley has joined the chorus of individuals outraged by a video posted by Vine's most followed user, Nash Grier. In a Vine that went out to the sixteen-year old's 8.7 million followers, Grier shows a clip of a commercial for OraQuick, an at home oral HIV test, in which two men say, "Testing for HIV, it's not a gay thing" to which Grier then responds, "Yes it is! FAG!" Oakley was quick to call Grier out on Twitter for his incendiary and defamatory remarks: "Call me and people like me, 'fag' all you want, but spreading false information about deadly diseases is next level."

Grier quickly deleted his video but it was captured by a Vine user and spread online thereafter. Grier has a history of making homophobic remarks on social media (and then deleting them), disparaging gay rights and gay marriage as Mashable points out

A petition was circulating on Change.org seeking an apology from Grier which Grier has since issued on Twitter, saying he was "young, ignorant, stupid and in a bad place" when he posted the video:

Dr. Gary Blick, co-founder of HIV Equal said of Grier's remarks:

HIV is not just a gay thing. It’s a woman thing, it’s an African-American thing, it’s a Latino thing - it’s something that affects everyone in every community,” said Dr. Blick. “It’s time that our youth here in the U.S. wake up and realize that HIV doesn’t discriminate - and neither should they! Even though MSM (men who have sex with men) are the greatest at risk for contracting HIV, so are youth aged 13-23."

Mash-Up Of Homophobic Jokes From Michael Bay Films Reveals Director's Gay Panic: VIDEO

MichaelBay1

Bad BoysTransformers, The Island, and Pain and Gain: these are examples of hyper-kinetic, variably watchable, mildly entertaining cinema, and the oeuvre of Michael Bay, whose new film, Transformers: Age of Extinction hit theaters this weekend. They also revel in homophobic humor which, taken out of context, adds up to one frustrating, panicked directorial vision. 

It may be nit-picky to point out each and every instance of humor rooted in intimations of gay sex, male-male romance, or hyper-effeminate mannerisms. But it is also reveals the pervasive, easy-to-bypass nature of homophobia in our masculine, heterosexually-driven society.

Watch and grimace, over at Gawker...


Shia LaBeouf Arrested at 'Cabaret' Performance, Allegedly Called Officer a 'Fag'

Labeouf

Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested during a performance of Cabaret on Broadway last night and escorted from the theater in handcuffs.

Broadway World reports that LaBeouf was disruptive and smoking during the performance.

ABC News adds:

Inside the precinct, LaBeouf was ranting and rambling incoherently, police said, threatening the officers and using offensive language. He remained handcuffed until being fingerprinted. LaBeouf was wearing a blue T-shirt with a rip on the right shoulder. He also exhibited an unpleasant body odor, police told ABC News.

He was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespassing. An additional count of harassment was later added, police said.

The New York Post has more, reporting that LaBeouf "was slapping people on the behind and in the back of the head" and later allegedly used an anti-gay slur against cops:

At the Midtown-North station house, he allegedly became belligerent, demanding the cuffs be removed.
“F–k you. I’ll f–k you up!” the 28-year-old LaBeouf said, according to the sources.

Cops decided to not take the cuffs off the agitated “Transformers” star, and he allegedly started spitting, prompting officers to put a face mask on him.

LaBeouf then unloaded on the arresting officer and used a ­homophobic slur.

“I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys,” the ­unhinged actor said. “I’m going to ruin your career,” he added, then allegedly called the cop a “f-g.”

'Big Brother 16' Hasn't Even Started and There is Already a Racist Homophobe Controversy

A few days ago we reported that Ariana Grande's gay half-brother would be appearing on Season 16 of CBS' Big Brother which premieres on Wednesday, and now it has been revealed that one of Grande's housemates is an alleged homophobe and racist.

CalebReynoldsCaleb Reynolds, a former prison guard in Iraq and professional hunter posted several unfortunate comments on his Instagram account, "insain_physique." He seems mostly to harbor very ill feelings toward President Obama.

Online Big Brother reports:

On Caleb’s Instagram account “insain_physique” about 20 months ago he made some extremely disturbing comments. When these comments surfaced whoever is managing his account deleted his account in an attempt to destroy the evidence. His Instagram profile read “Caleb Reynolds 100% natural, Personal Trainer, fitness is my passion, GOD is my strength, heaven is my goal.”

One of Reynolds' comments read:

“You believe in murder? You agree with fags? I guess so but I don’t agree with murdering A innocent baby which he clearly doesn’t mind. Nothin has changed in these last four years. You know it. Your just a democrat that wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you, your dismissed…

Also if you could see straight and wasn’t color blind the map if the US is completely red, thank god he only gets 4 more years. You and the other democrats will wish you never voted for him soon. Good job.”

Will his bigoted remarks receive some airtime, or will he keep them to himself (unlike last season's contestants)? Time will tell.
