Thank you, Dan Abrams.
The MSNBC host last night called attention to some of the anti-gay hate speech that has arisen from Heath Ledger’s death and his association with Brokeback Mountain, including (though he won’t mention them) the Fred Phelps clan, John Gibson, and various bloggers and commenters on message boards.
Abrams: “This is insanity. Yes I thought it was going to happen to some degree. But the notion that there are going to be some people there picketing at his funeral. I mean this is disgusting beyond what I even expected, and I think it’s going to continue to some degree…”
He’s right, it’s disgusting.
