We love hearing about the crazy things celebrities do, but we also care about their good deeds. When they use their star power for positive change!

And photographer-spitting Pete Wentz and his jealous wifey, Ashlee Simpson, are taking a stand for equality.

Pete and Asslee recently teamed up with other celebrities to join the No H8TE Campaign, and we've got to say, we haven't seen Wentz looking this hot in a long time!

Also joining the efforts is the ever adorable Emmy Rossum and rocker Mark Hoppus.

Faboosh!

    Nice.



  2. 2

    Mark Hoppus!!



  3. 3

    MARIO….you getting the hint????????



  4. 4

    I don't hate.

    I don't think you should be able to be "married" either.

    I do support that you have some form of "union" that allows you to have all the same rights.

    but not "marriage"



  5. 5

    They can join the campaign all they want but the decision has been made for now. There is not much that can be done about it. No, even celebrities with tape over their mouths don't have the power to change the court's decision. Btw, Pete Wentz has never looked hot. Ew.



  6. 6

    mark hoppus is looking fine!

    …this just warms my heart strings:)



  7. 7

    This campaign is bad - whoever thought of it should be shot. By plastering pictures everywhere showing celebs with tape over their mouth - they are suggesting one of two things - either it's ok to have hate, just don't speak about it, or DON'T stand up for hate by speaking, keep your mouth shut.
    Either way it sucks and they could have been more original.



  8. 8

    Great pics, It's nice to know that some heterosexual people they just don't think about themselves !!



  9. 9

    Oh look, there's mark i really liked Blink 182



  10. 10

    Wow Mario.

    Make up your friggin mind. You can't seem to decide to love our hate Wentz. He goes to your Prop h8 rally and you applaud him, he spits at a papparazzi, you bash him. Now he's okay in your books again. All within a 2 week span.

    You do realize after you go to these events you hold and parties you host and rub shoulders with celebs they all go home and probably talk behind your back? They all know what a two-faced backstabbing poser you are, leeching off what little fame THEY have to try and make your falling star just a little bit brighter for the few remaining seconds you have left of your own personal 15 minutes of "fame".

    You need a reality check man. Big time. Your site has devolved to mud-slinging at it's worst. Even worse than those backwards hillbillies on FOX News. At least they decide who to hate, and stick with it. You don't even have the balls to do THAT.



  11. 11

    they look like idiots. stop the h8 campaigning - all the spectacle of it just takes away from the actual issue. looks like posturing to me.



  12. 12

    wow. all the famewhores support this campaign. how noble.



  13. 13

    Gay Pride week kicked off here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada today! These posters are great! I am straight but I think gays deserve equal rights everywhere!



  14. 14

    Very nice. It's nice to see celebs standing up for what should just be COMMON rights!



  15. 15

    I LOVE HOW YU GUY GET SAME SEX COUPLES AND STRAIGHT PEOPLE TO DO THIS. LIKE THEY REALLY FUCKING CARE. THEY'RE JUST USING YOUR CAUSE TO PIMP THEMSELVES. LULZ.



  16. 16

    I don't get the tape? that's soooo rehashed 80s!



  17. 17

    they look like idiots. stop the h8 campaigning - all the spectacle of it just takes away from the actual issue. looks like posturing

    they look like idiots. stop the h8 campaigning - all the spectacle just takes away from the issue. looks like posturing to me.



  21. 21

    Perez. YOU ARE A EFFING IDIOT. YOU BASH PEOPLE THAT ARE AGAINST GAY RIGHTS. YOU BASH THEIR REPUTATION. FINALLY SOMEONE IS STANDING UP FOR YOUR ASS AND YOU CONTINUE TO BASH THEM.

    NOW YOU WANNA PICK AND CHOOSE YOUR SUPPORTERS.

    Make up your mind dumb a$$.



  22. 22

    Lame duct tape campaign is what I call it. Surely they could have thought up a better concept. Artistic director should be fired.

  23. epic says – reply to this


    23

    oh look at all these has-beens. awwww sweet. wonder why they jump on the train…



  24. 24

    stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!



  25. 25

    wouldn't it have been better if they had people that were actually gay?



  26. 26

    Re: dudeioRe: JohnnyDRe: dudeioRe: dudeioRe: dudeio
    Sure Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson can be famewhores, but how is Emmy Rossum?
    And how is Mark Hoppus one?
    I like it. I like the concept and the fact they're showing heterosexual people who support this as well.



  27. 27

    Re: epic – ha ha love your remark!



  28. 28

    I H8 Emmy Rossum



  29. 29

    Is there a way that the tape can permanently stay on Ashlee Simpson's mouth?



  30. 30

    Although I support gay rights and feel there should be a separation of church and state. I don't think it's right for anyone to call having Christian values "hate."



  31. 31

    i'm all for gay rights, but this is one shitty ad with a bunch of straight people hooking themselves onto a cause for publicity. pete and ashlee are already married, like they really give a fuck.



  32. 32

    They look cute.



  33. 33

    These celebs aren't gay… so how am I supposed to know what the ad means by just looking at it? Wouldn't it make more sense to use something like "equality for all"? These ads are not clear and don't make a lot of sense unless you take time to read the text.



  34. 34

    I guess they all have to kiss gay ass if they want to get work in Hollywood.



  35. 35

    Perez, you are so hypocritical. For someone who himself and his few fans believe in equal rights for everyone, that everyone should be loved and be free to love whomever they want, you HATE people that disagree with you. So tell me, where's the sincere love in YOUR message? You are the definition of a hypocrite.
    This world is swirling into oblivion - equal rights for gays, push to be pro-choice, increased pregnancy before marriage…what liberal unifications will we fight to protect next?
    BTW-you can't be Catholic and pro-choice for those of you who call yourself Catholic Christians. Does religion mean anything nowadays?



  36. 36

    Re: JohnnyD – where is this fact? have you been to hell to see these people burn? and dont say that "its in the bible", its the most outdated book in the world…todays world is nothing like the world 2000 years ago…christians are not fed to lions, diseases are not a curse or punishment from God and gays and lesbians wont burn in hell…btw - hell is not a place its a mental state of seperation…so they wouldnt burn anyway!
    .
    i fully support gay marriage and im a catholic!



  37. 37

    Fuck the gays! They're the most discriminating and most biased people on the planet. Given power, they'd be very, very oppressive towards others.

    Anyhoo, the Z-lister never-been Mark Hoppus is delicious. Those eyes!



  38. 38

    MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARK!



  39. 39

    This is stupid but hey don't hate either.



  40. 40

    this is great to see. i hope the campaign gets even more public. there is a significant movement happening… shit is bout to change for the better.



  41. 41

    I wish we could leave that tape permanately on celebrities mouths! They need to shut the fuck up and stop trying to "convince" people what to believe. Its fucking annoying and makes me want to choose opposite just out of spite.



  42. 42

    This photographer is great!!!!



  43. 43

    UGH the only reason Pete looks good is because his HUUUUUGE mouth is taped shut. Asslee and Pete are really fugly! Michelle Trntenburg (??) or whatever her name is…she's a DOLL! So much prettier and not as annoying as these two turds



  44. 44

    That Mark Hoppus, I would do dirty things to. The others, blah



  45. 45

    What the fuck is wrong with Ashley?



  46. 46

    Ashlee**



  47. 47

    .
    So many comments here make me sad & disgusted.
    .
    Discrimination is okay by you?
    .
    You don't seem to get it that we are ALL diminished if any segment of the population is denied equal rights.

    Re: jesyrene
    .
    # 39 .. I don't think Blink-182 are "Z-listers"



  49. 49

    Pete and Ashley will endorse anything for publicity!



  50. 50

    Re: HellscreamGold
    i kinda agree with u here.
    call me woteva the fuck u want but i just DONT agree with this whole h8 campaign thing.
    a whole load of stupid ”celebs” with masking tape over their mouths. AND? WTF is tht gonna do? its not gonna change what has already been passed any time soon.
    gay marrige is just never going to be accepted en masse.
    i hav many gay friends myself so dont go calling me homophobic.



  51. 51

    Re: kasshole
    AMEN!



  52. 52

    I have gay friends and straight friends and I don' t care what anyone does but me, but I really can't see these poeple caring either, about anyone but publicity for themselves.



  53. 53

    emmy rosssum is fucking hot



  54. 54

    Ashley husband is obviously gay, that's the reason for the tape in the mouth..He should know…

    This is another attempt of egotistic musicians and actors to be relevant…They really don't care but it's "cool".-

    So pathethic!



  55. 55

    the decision is final. and what will ashlee do when Joe Simpson see's these pic's. it will ruin his empire. oh, wait, jess was dropped from her lable and is still hanging on to Tony. Ashley will be divorced from the midget Wentz within 2 years. promise. she married to mary. no one else woudl date her.



  56. 56

    NICE!

    NO H8!



  57. 57

    it would have been nice if some of these people would have cared so much BEFORE the proposition passed !!! where were they then ? putting discrimination into the state constitution affects EVERYBODY.



  58. 58

    Re: iheartgays – See I couldnt disagree more,I think it's much more effective when friends and supporters of gay rights that are straight are public about their support it shows that people can care about other peoples civil rights no matter if you're gay or straight. Just like liberal whites who came out in support of black civil rights it was much more effective then just having black people protesting,it showed that they had support beyond just their group.



  59. 59

    Re: spenn2 – Wow all that hate ,let's be clear about this prop h8 it's far from final,bigot, the battle for equal rights has just begun . Thank you hetros for supporting equal rights for gays,it's nice that you do it and it's the right and moral thing.



  60. 60

    Re: dudeio – Well angelina and Brad support this campaign as so almost all of the top tier celebrities. Where you making a point,I must have missed it?



  61. 61

    Re: St00p!d Bitchassness – Did you even finish sixth grade,I mean I'm sure youre at least 20 ,but you sound like such an uneducated piece of shit.



  62. 62

    Re: FugsMagee – I can't wait till al the christo-fascist haters(not to be confused with sweet mainstream christians) like you all get cancer just like all the aids you wish on gay people.



  63. 63

    Re: kasshole – Well too fucking bad ,I love that they are doing this and more and more are. It's going to be a huge efferrt this time in Ca and the vote will come out in favor of gay marriage or it will be battle threee until it happens.



  64. 64

    Re: HellscreamGold – Well you can call your boner in denying gay people equal rights what you want,but in order to keep it simple ,we call it hate because it fits so much especially when you see the radical trash that ran the campaign here against gay people in the republican party funded with mormon cult momey. It's so giving of you to begrudgingly want to give gay tax payers civil unions,you are such a giver but the truth is the republican party and the white trash in it continue to fight civil union laws in every state and they even fight for the right to be able to fire a gay person just for being gay. So see the republican party of fascist southern scum is never really for civil unions. Oh and on top of all that hate the republcian party won't support anit-bullying programs if they also defend gay kids. That's how immoral and disgusting today's conservatives and republicans are.



  65. 65

    Re: Mand0387 – Well you kind of got it half right,we do have separation of church and state,so the rightwing churches should mind their own business because in no way are theyforced to marry anyone they don't want to ,its' already the law. Secondly you seem confused lots of christian churches support gay marriage as do most jewish places of worship. So christian values is a weird term to use because many churches see christian values as coming to the defense of gay people and helping them achieve full civil rights. In fact what you refer to as "christian values" many see as ignorant hate and not really christian.



  66. 66

    Re: jesyrene – Yes all gays are oppressive so its ok to treat them like second class citizens. Is that what you just posted,are you insane ? Are you really that evil and ignorant or are you just trying to get attention because you have none in your every day life? Really I'm curious.



  67. 67

    Re: kasshole – Can we permenantly tape your fingers together so we are not subjected to your constant third grade Iq posts and hateful posturing on the keyboard. Repeal prop h8 now.. Yeah.



  68. 68

    I am about as republican as you get and I believe that everyone should be allowed to get married regardless…….



  69. 69

    Re: knowitall – i get your point- but i can't see any of these people caring. they aren't promoting the cause, they're promoting themselves.



  70. 70

    Just curious, why is it considered hate if you disagree with same sex marriage? Are people no longer entitled to an opinion? In Mario's twisted world, apparently not. Is it hate if you prefer Ford over Chevy? Is it hate, if you adhere to a set of legal values and believe in them? I dont hate you or anyone else for having your opinions, why should anyone else be persecuted for theirs? Got an answer for that one Mario?



  71. 71

    Re: knowitall
    ooooo did I strike a nerve? Now you know how I feel when I see these lame, retarded celebrities "voicing their opinions" when in reality they could probably care less, they just are so egotistical and will do anything to get camera time. Why am I going to be influenced by mostly alcoholic, druggie, high school/college drop outs who can't even get out of a car without flashing thier vaginas?? Give me a fucking break. They underestimate peoples intelligence by pasting duck tape on their mouths (actually that part I like) and telling them how they should vote. And if you don't agree with it…you're a hateful bastard. EVERYONE has a right to their opinions, but don't push that shit on me. I can think for myself and do NOT need a girl who can't even get through a set without lip syncing telling me how I should vote. ugh get a fucking life.



  72. 72

    I am 100% for gay rights but it makes me mad that MOST of these celebs speaking out on the issue are just doing it for publicity. I wish they would just stop. They are taking away from the real issue and using it to get air time. Lets be honest most celebs are not that educated when it comes to politics.



  73. 73

    My God, i am in loveeeee with Mr.Hoppus.



  74. 74

    God Mark Hoppus is such a cutie. What a good dude.



  75. 75

    HOPPUS! HOPPUS! HOPPUS!



  76. 76

    I'm sure Wentz and Simpson just needed the MONEY! They're weird and don't care about anyone but themselves! I'm behind the Stop H8te but don't buy certain celebrities that do certain things! Remember SHE is a preachers daughter and he's skitzoid!



  77. 77

    Re: grace-e – good for you! I completely agree, and I think all these people against it are THE DISCUSTING ONES! especially the people calling the homosexual people in this world "filthy" YOU DISCUST ME FUCKING HATERS! YOU ARE THE PEOPLE THAT SHOULD GO TO HELL!!!! LOVE EVERYONE! DONT HATE :(



  78. 78

    Hats off to whatever genius managed to convince Hollywood famewhoring morons that duct-taping their mouths closed is "making a statement." Doesn't Rosie O'Donnell support gay marriage? :)



  79. 79

    Um in reply to EPIC. Mark Hoppus is not has been! He's still hot and the Blink 182 tour is going to be off the hook. The others are also not has beens. You just wish you were them.



  80. 80

    Well i think its great. No celebrties with tape on their mouths can't magically make the supreme court judges change their minds, but they can influence their fans to support the cause which is great. Thank you perez, you inspire me, while i am not gay i support this cause and it is one of the most important causes to me. many commentors are haters. you don't have to be gay to support this great cause and you can be a christian. i believe some christians are haters in denial when they say i dont hate them i just dont think they're good enough to be like us. Like my pastor who i hate. thanks again perez



  81. 81

    Are you sure that these people aren't just going after the media coverage?



  82. 82

    The more i see celebrities speaking out in favor of gay ”equality” the more i realize they are all DOUCHEBAGS! Seriously how many a-listers are in these campaigns (nobody), and how many of them are slutty, tattooed, drug and alcohol abusing narcissists (everybody)? Or did i just describe every person in hollywood??



  83. 83

    Re: softbones – actually you were right the first time. Miss Idiot changed her name from ashley to ashlee ("i'm like such a cool rocker")



  84. 84

    mark hoppus is muchos hottus!

  85. 16MPG says – reply to this


    85

    Ladies and Gentlemen, please leave the tape on after the photshoot is over.



  86. 86

    a good cause. Ride on!



  87. 87

    Mark Hoppus looks beautiful in that picture!!



  88. 88

    for some reason, i feel that straight people do this, it isnt that effective. do they think people are going to listen to them because they are their fave celebs, or are they just doing it because they were told to? or maybe because they want some free publicity….i mean…who knows? people are born with a gene that causes them to be gay….its not their faults….so to take away those rights is unfair. its just something that is not going to be normal for a long time…sorry im no one special



  89. 89

    I love who he writes, "We love hearing about the crazy things celebrities do, but we also care about their good deeds." it makes me laugh because he only writes about them doing shit HE agrees with. He doesn't write about when they donate money to charities or help an old lady cross the street, only when they are involving Obama and prop 8.



  90. 90

    Pete does look hot(:
