I knew it would only be a matter of time before GLAAD President Neil Guilano was all over Ja Rule for anti-gay comments he made recently regarding gays on television to Complex Magazine. It has become a standard for GLAAD to demand an apology from those who dare to display their homophobia in front of the world, but surprisingly a different approach was taken this time.
"No fair-minded person can look at Ja Rule’s interview with Complex Magazine and believe for one second that his children could be more harmed by what they might see on television than by the vulgarity and prejudice that comes out of their father’s mouth. Now that media have seen JaRule’s intolerance unmasked by his own words, they have a responsibility not to provide in the future a platform for his ugly, vulgar displays of prejudice.” -GLAAD
Ja Rule's new cd will be dropping soon and one can only believe that this was an attempt on his part to get some press for a career that ended years ago. I hope he enjoyed the attention he received from the gay community over the past few days because the hip-hop community continues to ignore him. It's a shame he hasn't learned that the gay community is loyal to artists who support us. Ask Jennifer Holliday, we pretty much kept food in her stomach post Dreamgirls.
