Singer Alexander O'Neal Quits Celebrity Big Brother After Calling Perez Hilton A 'Silly-Ass Faggot' - VIDEO

O'neal

Soul singer Alexander O'Neal has walked away from Celebrity Big Brother UK after receiving a formal warning by producers on Saturday for directing an anti-gay slur at gossip blogger and fellow housemate Perez Hilton during an ongoing feud. 

The Daily Record reports:

Tension had been brewing between the pair since early in the morning, when Hilton woke O'Neal with his persistent coughing.

"What the f*** are you coming up here coughing all around me for?" O'Neal yelled.

Later he confided in housemates: "That's what he wants. He's blowing kisses at me ... He wants me to kick his ass."

As the other celebrities in the Big Brother house urged Hilton to keep his distance, he instead followed O'Neal into the lounge room and stared at him silently.

"I know what you want, but you're not going to get it. I know exactly what you want. And in America, you know what you'd get, don't you? You want that now, but you're not going to get it. You're taunting me. You're coming over here, you're following me, you're bothering me," O'Neal said.

"You're not going to say one word. You're just going to sit there with that silly-ass f***** look on your face."

Housemates reacted immediately, with one responding: "No no no no no no no!"

"He called me the F-word, which is incredibly offensive," Hilton said, recoiling.

The Daily Mail adds Hilton went into the Diary Room shortly afterwards to tell Big Brother he wanted to go home because he feared for his safety and was hungry. 

Hilton'Hello Big Brother,' he announced. 'So before I go to bed, I want to reiterate that I would really like to go home. I feel very strongly and calmly about this.

'I don't want to be in the house anymore for my own safety. Before I came into the house, I said that the two most important things to me were safety and food. I do not want to fear for my safety and I do not want to go hungry - but now I am.

O'Neal reportedly attempted to make amends with Hilton before his exit but was ignored. Later in the episode, Big Brother announced O'Neal's departure to the rest of the house by revealing a farewell message from O'Neal that read: "To all my housemates, I have had a great experience with you guys and I have mad love for almost all of you."

Last year, former heavyweight champion boxer Evander Holyfield was reprimanded by Celebrity Big Brother producers for saying being gay is akin to being "handicapped" and "is a choice." Holyfield later apologized.

Former Lowe's Employee Sues For Antigay Discrimination And Harassment

Screen Shot 2015-01-16 at 2.06.23 PM

Former Lowe's employee Adam Haimowitz claims he was the target of homophobic taunts, verbal harassment and subsequently fired for testifying in a colleague's discrimination case against the hardware giant reports The AdvocateHaimowitz, 32, worked at the Lowe's in Orangeburg, N.Y. for 11 years, and he regularly filed complaints with the company's human resources department regarding the anti-gay harassment he endured. Haimowitz's complaints yielded no results as the alleged harassment continued.

Haimowitz's lawsuit claims a female manager called him a "whore," and said to him that the promiscuity of gay men was well-documented. The lawsuit also contains details about an incident where a male supervisor asked Haimowitz for oral sex, and that a coworker "joked" that someone might contract AIDS when Haimowitz inadvertently cut his finger. "They got a kick out of it. I guess they got pleasure out of it," Haimowitz told Journal News. 

The lawsuit claims that Haimowitz was fired based on trumped-up reasons that only turned into formal complaints in the months following his 2012 testimony in support of a gay colleague who sued the company for "sex-based harassment." That lawsuit, filed by an Edward Marse, settled in April 2014 under the agreement Marse would not discuss the terms of the settlement. Prior to Marse's settlement, Haimowitz held a perfect record with the company in the four years leading up to his testimony. However, a month after the company reached a settlement with Marse, Haimowitz claims he was written up twice for a "time and attendance" infraction and for "using strong language on the floor," reports Journal News. Haimowitz's lawsuit contends he was terminated under the pretext of "making inappropriate comments on the floor."

A spokeswoman for Lowe's declined to comment to Journal News, but the company has long held a rough relationship with the LGBT community. The Human Rights Campaign's latest Corporate Equality Index gave Lowe's a score of 30 out of 100, and noted that although the company's nondiscrimination policy includes sexual orientation and gender identity, it does not offer equal spousal benefits to same-sex couples, nor does it offer trans-inclusive health care coverage, LGBT cultural competency training or LGBT employee groups.

Florida State University Lecturer Resigns Following Racist, Homophobic Rant - VIDEO

Deborah O'Connor

Florida State University College of Business senior lecturer Deborah O’Connor has resigned from her position following an outburst last week on Facebook in which she used racist, Islamophobic and homophobic slurs, reports the Tallahassee Democrat.

Eborah O'connor 2In response to a post by hair stylist Colin Lively last Thursday on the police killings in Ferguson, Staten Island and Cleveland, O’Connor’s comments included:

“YOU elected POTUS, Holder et al. And they are supposed to represent all Americans, not just blacks … why don’t these ass clowns insert themselves into their stories?”

“Take your Northern fagoot [sic] elitism and shove it up your ass.”

“I teach at a University, you asshole. What do you do?”

“You are an intellectual fraud, just like your Messiah. Obama has single-handedly turned our once great society into a Ghetto Culture, rivaling that of Europe. France is almost at war because of his filthy rodent Muslims who are attacking Native Frenchmen and women.”

O'Connor has confirmed her decision to bring a planned retirement next spring forward as “the path of least resistance.” Her comments have since been deleted.

Lively said:

"I'm surprised her employers weren't aware of her and hadn't done something about it. I feel very bad for any woman who carries that kind of rage inside her heart. I feel very bad and sorry for her."

Alabama Issues 'N0H0M0' License Plate

Nohomo

The Alabama DMV's license plate "review and recall process" apparently overlooked one vehicle owner's "N0H0M0" license plate. Think Progress published the photo, taken by Scott Johnston, a Facilities Manager in the Atlanta, Georgia area, who saw it in a parking lot.

Writes TP's Zack Ford:

Amanda Collier, a spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Revenue, informed ThinkProgress that a process is in place to monitor what plates are banned. When a request for a personalized license plate is filed, a three-person review panel considers each application, sometimes offering alternative lettering for the requested message. Some messages are so explicit, however, that “no alternative can be offered” and the taxpayer’s request is denied. “There is a list of more than 6,000 plates that are strictly banned and will not be allowed on any tag in the state,” Collier explained, including “anything explicit, any profanity, or vulgar language.”


Gay Couple's Home in Alaska Targeted with Sign Reading 'Fags Die'

Sign

A gay couple living in Anchorage, Alaska had their home and car struck by vandals this week.

Adam Jacobson says that he discovered a frozen soupy substance on the couple's mailbox, an eggshell on the front porch, and a few empty jars in their backyard.

But it was what they found on the windshield of their car that really disturbed them, KTVA reports.

Someone had walked up their driveway to place a sign made up of many smaller signs on the vehicle, which had a swastika on it, and said "FAG FREE ZONE", "White Power", "Fags Die, God Laughs, Homosexuality is Sin", "I Hate You, "Two Men Should Friends! Not Butt Buddies!!!", "Homos are possessed by demons", and "God Hates Fag Enablers".

Jacobson and his husband have lived in their current home for four years. He says that friends and members of the community have been supportive since the incident.

He attributes the hate as a reaction to the recent legalization of same-sex marriage in Alaska, and says the haters are "feeling marginalized and feeling like sort of victims of the progressive moment."
