Republican Jacob Dorsey Drops Out Of Race For Wisconsin Assembly Following More Homophobic, Racist Comments

Jacob Dorsey, the 19-year-old Republican candidate for Wisconsin State Assembly, has dropped out of the race after racist and homophobic comments he had made on Twitter and YouTube surfaced, reports LGBTQ Nation.

On Monday we reported that Dorsey was facing a backlash following a tweet sent last December that contained a homophobic slur.

The tweet, which has since been deleted, read: Acob dorsey yourtube comment1

“10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejects #Utah’s request to stop same-sex marriages.” fags need 2 leave my favorite state alone.”

In a statement, Dorsey had apologised for the tweet and said “I regret using unacceptable and hurtful language on social media last year. I am a staunch supporter of traditional marriage, but the language I used is not in keeping with my character, family values and Christian upbringing.”

However, yesterday NOManiacs, a group that exposes hate speech, reported that Dorsey had posted further racist and homophobic comments on YouTube. The comments were posted to Dorsey’s since deleted “jdorsey1995″ YouTube channel, the same account name he used for Twitter and Instagram.

Dorsey - a former intern with Citizens for Decency who has been endorsed by Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Right To Life - yesterday told the The Janesville Gazette that he had “decided to withdraw from the race due to insensitive remarks that have surfaced from years past. This race has been extremely hard on my family and myself.” Acob dorsey yourtube comment2

On Dorsey's resignation, NOManiacs said:

"We hope Jacob Dorsey truly regrets his posts. America needs leaders at all levels who champion diversity and are committed to represent all. Dorsey was not yet that person."


Snoop Dogg Sends Homophobic Tweet, Quickly Deletes It, Still Gets Caught

SnoopDogg

Rapper Snoop Dogg was caught in a homophobic snare early this morning after tweeting a gay slur about an Instagram user. The tweet used the language of "f.A.G." and told the Instagram user, whose picture Snoop Dogg had reposted on his own Instagram account (see below), "bitch boy go suck ya man n get off my line." Buzzfeed reports that the post, comment, and tweet were deleted soon after they were posted, around 1am.

Comments from Snoop Dogg's Instagram followers were telling as well. One user threatened "I got screenshots on my page" while another threw in support, writing "Keep It Gangsta Snoop dez Fags talk tooo much." At the time the screenshot above was taken, nearly 9000 Instagram users had liked the post.

Snoop Dogg previously theorized that it may never be acceptable to be gay in the rap industry, but claimed, "I got some gay homies." What would they think about this incident, Snoop? 

No comment has been made by Snoop Dogg or his representation.

News: Russia, Aurora Borealis, Gay Pride In The Muslim World, Gay Marriage

RoadRussia's anti-gay law one year out: "Only a few people were fined throughout the year and this might not seem to be much of a problem," Lokshina said. "But the fines are not what this law is about. This law is not only contrary to Russia's international obligations but has also contributed to anti-gay violence and to creating a hostile environment for LGBT people in the country. It has contributed to stigmatizing LGBT individuals as unnatural, perverse and as acceptable targets."

R. Kelly On Transgender Son: 'No Matter What They Are or Who They Are...You Love Them' - VIDEO

Rkelly

During an interview with his hometown radio station WGCI, R. Kelly gave a handful of mixed answers when questioned about his son who identifies as transgender.

Jay"You don't really wanna open it up by saying my daughter is becoming my son," he corrected interviewers sharply. “Always believe what you see with your own eyes, that is. Always believe what you see.” Kelly continued. “Thats the best way to go about this business I’ve heard a lot of things about a lot of people, it was never true.”

R. Kelly’s son Jay came out as transgender via his Instagram profile earlier this month. Since then Jay has taken to his Ask.fm account fielding questions about his personal life, his decision to come out, and the typical issues that occupy the lives of most 14-year olds (he’s a Spongebob fan.)

In contrast with his son’s surprisingly public and transparent coming out, Kelly has been relatively mum on the topic. When pressed further, Kelly asserted that above all else his children were undoubtedly his highest priority.

“No matter what they are or who they are, they still your kids, you love them, you know but you’ve got to support them,” Kelly asserted. “At the end of the day, it’s not about me no more it’s about three lovely, lovely kids that I’m in love with and that’s in love with me.”
