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.

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.


FIFA Decides Anti-Gay Slurs are Okay, Drops Case Against Mexican Fans

 

MEXICO COACH DEFENDS USE OF ANTI-GAY SLUR BY WORLD CUP FANS

Yesterday we reported that Mexico was under investigation by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) after fans chanted the abusive term “puto” during Mexico’s win over Cameroon on June 13. "Puto" is the Spanish word for a male prostitute, "fag" or "coward", and a derogatory term for gay men.

However, FIFA has decided to take no action against the Mexican football federation as the chant “is not considered insulting in this specific context.”

FIFA has now dismissed the charge as “improper conduct.”

LunaSpeaking to MVS Radio, Mexican actor and producer Diego Luna said that he heard the homophobic chant at the World Cup in Germany in 2006. Luna went on to say "soccer is a reflection of what we are in many ways. We live in a classist, racist, homophobic society into which we are very assimilated, that's all. I'm not really proud about that."

Although FIFA President Sepp Blatter and Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff had pledged to use the World Cup as a platform against racism and discrimination, FIFA has awarded the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 event to Qatar, despite human rights abuses in those countries and Russia’s 2013 decision to pass anti-gay laws.


Opera Australia Dumps Star Soprano Tamar Iveri For Disgusting, Anti-Gay Facebook Remarks

Iveri

Georgian singer Tamar Iveri (right), a soprano contracted to perform in Opera Australia's upcoming production of Otello, was released this weekend after posting anti-gay comments on her Facebook page. The post was framed as a letter to the Georgian president regarding the violence which occurred at a gay march in the capital of Tbilisi. 

The Guardian reports:

“I was quite proud of the fact how Georgian society spat at the parade … Often, in certain cases, it is necessary to break jaws in order to be appreciated as a nation in the future, and to be taken into account seriously,” the post said. It was deleted following the recent backlash.

“Please, stop vigorous attempts to bring the west’s ‘faecal masses’ in the mentality of the people by means of propaganda.”

On Monday Opera Australia shared a Facebook post of its own, saying Iveri would not be performing the role of Desdemona in Otello.

“Opera Australia has reached agreement with Ms Iveri to immediately release her from her contract with the company,” it wrote.

“Opera Australia believes the views as stated to be unconscionable.”

Iveri now claims the post was written by her husband, stating that he has a "tough attitude towards gay people," and is "very religious." Her arguments seem not to have swayed anyone, as she has reportedly been dropped from a 2015 performance with a Belgian opera company as well.

The public response to Iveri's dismissal has been overwhelmingly positive.


Mexico Coach Defends Use of Anti-Gay Slur by World Cup Fans

Football Against Racism Europe has contacted the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) after fans allegedly chanted the abusive term “puto”, the Spanish word for a male prostitute, "fag" or "coward", and a derogatory term for gay men, during Mexico’s win over Cameroon on June 13.

Mexican soccer coach Miguel Herrera has said that the slur, chanted by fans during opposition goal kicks, is “not that bad.” Speaking to The Christian Science Monitor, Mexican soccer fan Javier Ángeles argued that “puto” is used to point out cowardice and not to imply sexual preference.

However, according to Alejandro Brito Lemus, the director of the Mexican magazine Letra S, which covers LGBTQI issues, the use of the term by fans is “completely homophobic.”

Mexico is now under an investigation by FIFA. In a statement, the international governing body for soccer said:

“We encourage individuals and groups such as FARE to submit any evidence in their possession with regard to discriminatory behavior for the analysis and consideration of the FIFA disciplinary committee.”

FIFA is also looking into allegations of homophobic slurs by Brazilian fans, as well the use of anti-Semitic banners by Croatian and Russian fans.

Although FIFA President Sepp Blatter and Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff have pledged to use the World Cup as a platform against racism and discrimination, it has been argued that FIFA’s actions are hypocritical as it has awarded the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 event to Qatar, despite human rights abuses in those countries and Russia’s 2013 decision to pass anti-gay laws.
