CBS Finally Speaks On Their Hypocrisy!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMadonnaBritney SpearsAdam LambertLGBT


CBS has finally offered an explanation for Wednesday morning's double standard in which they blurred out Adam Lambert kissing another man yet aired Madge and Britney's kiss uncensored.

The statement from the CBS rep reads:

"We gave this some real thought. The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning television. The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences."

That's the best they could come up with?????

It still doesn't excuse their blatant homophobia and sexism!

    People think it's ”hot” when girls kiss
    well it's hot when guys kiss too!
    bottom line ABC is homophobic

  2. Alpha says – reply to this


    i hate cbs!

  3. 3

    urgh..freakin morons!

  4. 4

    They're horrible, people need to become more open minded to things they're not used to seeing.

  5. 5

    LAME! Super lame!

  6. 6

    Fuck that shit!!!! We demand EQUALITY NOW!!!!!! Down with CBS and FOX News.

  7. 7

    whats the big deal it's just a kiss!!!!!!!! i see it everyday parents or who ever are complaining should just not watch live tv shit happens

  8. 8

    they should leave adam alone!
    come on
    its only a act
    for the show!

  10. 10

    CBS really is wrong. They should have blurred BOTH pictures because in my opinion they are BOTH inappropriate. Even if it was a straight couple, I don't think sucking face on national TV is a very classy thing to do.

  11. 11

    "May still lead to legal consequences"
    Nice try, CBS.
    Ridiculous attempt at an explanation.
    Adam was right-on when he said that a double standard exists.
    Go Adam

  12. 12

    They lie… Its because Britney and Madonna kissing is hot as all hell, but this other dude whoever he is, making out with another dude is gross!

  13. 13

    Thats so messed up..i dont get how they can get away with shizz like that

  14. 14

    CBS needs to catch hell for this. They only had Adam on to grab easy ratings for their suck fest of a show. They could have shown no clips at all, because like they said, everybody has seen the Brit on Memaw kiss, we would have known what they were talking about. Adam must be loving all the attention though.

  15. 15

    HAH! white people are hilarious!

  16. 16

    I agree…There is a double standard… It's a man's world, and men wanna see women kissing..and not men…Lame I KNOW…

  17. 17

    Wow. I can't believe that excuse. Madonna and Britney kissing isn't controversial because everyone's seen it so many times already? Maybe if they wouldn't cowardly censor two men kissing, people could get used to it and the "controversy" of this would wear off as well.

  18. 18

    i love Adam Lambert and although the singing was not so good, his performance was good and what he did was just to get attention and he wanted to show conservative America something :D

  19. 19

    Well I understand your interest in this Perez. This is the second time you have posted the same thing on this issue. Im quite tired of hearing that oh we would expect this type of thing from Madonna, but we are used to her. Adam has just come "out" with his career and everyone was surprised. One of Madonna's first shows was like a virgin and that was pretty controversial as well. Bottom line is it IS a double standard whether you wanna see it or not. If they were so worried about homosexualism on tv then they would of done the same blur for madonna/britney picture. All the fuddy-duddy's and hate-mongorers just need to chill. I actually would like to thank ABC and CBS for making Adam's performance that much better. He has gotten more attention for his music and performance than Janet Jackson who had an 8 minute number and it was the first time since MJ died. Go Adam!!! Continue to be who you are without people trying to push you back in to a republican box!!

  20. 20

    UGHHHHH!!! You are such a whiney bitch, Perez!!! Just because we don't WANT to see gay kissing does not mean that we are homophobic. Keep your PDA and sexual acts behind closed doors, please. Have some dignity and self-respect for cryin' out loud!!!

  21. cl254 says – reply to this


    my thoughts are that YOU are the only one making a big deal about this! get over it! 2 guys kissing just doesnt sit right with most ppl, 2 girls kissing is not as disgusting to most ppl, its just that way! get over it! The bigger issue here is that Adam is a JOKE! he had his chance and made a fool of himself! HAHAH! he sucks!

  22. 22

    Am not a big fan of Adam Lambert. But what do they mean by legal consequences? From who? Sounds like BS to me.

  23. 23

    just goes to show what the world is like now

  24. 24

    Glambert you rock!!

  25. 25

    hahahahah, I so F love the double standard in this country.
    CBS is run by gay anyway.
    Get used to those images and move on, people.

  26. 26

    I just don't understand why in the year 2009 we can discriminate on someone who is gay or anything else. I thought we were a changing country with Obama in but this whole thing is nuts…everybody is the same inside out and hiding what goes on in society in the media only shelters the younger generation from being educated. CBS is dumb and they just need to face the fact that they ARE HOMOPHOBIC and that they SHOULD have let Adam on. I LOVED Adam from the beginning of IDOL and nothing would ever change that I MEAN NOTHING!!!

  27. 27

    Double standard. Straight men including homophoboes love to see 2 women kissing and its not a big deal for them.

  28. 28

    WTF!?!?! That's all you have to excuse your homophobic, double standards???
    Ughhh it's 2009 guys! Could we please grow up??? It's a kiss, it's harmless. Ugh

  29. 29

    if this adam guy wasn't gay you wouldn't be so quick to defend him. the kiss, ok, it's a double standard. but simulating oral sex on stage? wtf. i laughed out loud, thinking this guy is the most desperate performer I've seen in a while. Anything to sell some albums, I gather he isn't living up to the hype.

  30. 30

    The land of the free…

  31. 31

    Is it really that surprising that life isn't fair and that there are double standards? Find a real problem to be upset over!

  32. 32

    Yeah CBS! No one wants to see Adam Lambart sucking face with his anorexic keyboardist while eating their morning cereal

  33. 33

    I don't care about someone kissing someone else or even grabbing their stupid crotch because MJ did it for years but having someone put their face in your crotch is ridiculous. And no perez, it would not have been okay in women did it……your just pissed off because it wasn't your face in his crotch!

  34. 34

    Glambert is a hottie, or is it hawt-E?

  35. 35

    cbs was right! adam sucks big time and you must being paid to create this drama by his label

  36. 36

    Ugh- really?
    all he did was kiss a dude- get over it!

    i love them all (:

    Adam is my hero(:
    & i am so proud of him!
    ah. he is my inspiration.

    haha i love you too.

  37. 37

    The kiss didn't bother me so much as the similulated blow job did - that was way out of line. I am an adult, not a homophobe, not conservative - I just thought it was gross and unnecessary, and frankly wouldn't want to see anyone doing that on stage.

    Adam was invited to be part of the AMA's and went on to use it as a platform for drawing attention to himself - unfortunately his music is ordinary so nobody would pay attention to him for those 'talents'. He should apologies to the people who INVITED him to be part of this event, as he has shown a complete lack of respect for the network and viewing audience. Cocky little SOB won't go far in this industry…

  38. 38

    FUCKING BULLSHIT! And then to patronize us with that total bullshit statement…ugh, it's infuriating. Either admit that you're all a bunch of hypocrites, or just keep quiet…don't insult our intelligence.

    Am I the only one who didn't even know that was a guy Adam kissed until I was told?

  39. 39

    How lame! I would rather see two dudes kissing. even soap operas show men making out.
    I don't wanna see Madonna's old ass kissing men or women

  40. 40

    Re: emmafrommelbourne – Are you aware of the performer called Prince? He often (on a near nightly basis) simulated oral sex with his guitarist on stage. She'd kneel before him, very close to his crotch, and he would caress her head and it looked like she was giving him a blowie.

  41. 41


    Leave that aside for one second. The woman interviewing Adam goes to him, "think of the children, can you imagine why parents would be upset by their children seeing TWO MEN KISSING on TV"

    1. W T F were your kids up at 11PM watching a show that gave you an adult warning rating right at the start??

    2. How DARE you act like one's orientation is more valuable or acceptable than another's. M/F is fine for their eyes F/F/F is fine but M/M isn't? I can't believe this Nazi-like bigoted behaviour still exists today. This is why the rest of the world hates and mocks America.

    No one here in the UK was offended by the AMAs performance because every single performer gave a sex driven perf!

    Christina's Dirty video would be 10 billion times more shocking to conservatives if she were male. No one cared that she was grinding against women as well as men

  42. 42

    the only thing offensive about the ama's is that mes of a middle aged woman JANET JACKSON lip synched a best-of performance.

    hi supposed live musical performances!!

    maybe ama should move their lame ass excuse of a lip synching show to cable.

    oh and they should prolly move their soap operas there too. it's common knowledge soap characters are presumably having sex with each other whilst lying presumably nekkid in bed together.

    i don't understand what the big deal is.

  43. 43

    This needs to go away. Fast. I don't know why they blurred the kiss though, I don't care much for that, you see that everywhere. The simulated oral sex was too much though, even for me.

  44. 44

    This is suppppper lame! This is isn't hypocrisy, it's just fucken gross. Adam Lambert, grow up and stop acting like a little kid that needs attention.

  45. 45

    It's wrong that it's a double standard, but it is. People are most used to seeing girls kissing girls. CBS is just doing what will keep their ratings. Big deal. It's how a business is run. People aren't comfortable with two men kissing yet and complaining won't help your cause.
    Just saying.

  46. 46

    Because we live in a straight mans world and that actually sickens me! Homophobia will always be around and anyone who is a LGBT person, like myself, have to kep fighting! After that performance, Adam has truly become an icon to me, and we need more performances like his in the mainstream!

  47. 47

    Eminem rapped about having RAPED 17 women Janet Jackson felt up & grabbed her dancers crotch in such a rough manner that he fell forward then bent him over to get 'butt access' Rihanna had over 10 rifles onstage after she got off a sexual torture device Shakira had half naked female dancers visually humping the audience en masse while she sang about animalistic sex Gaga smashed whiskey bottles and had her crotch out while singing about sex Had Britney also been there grinding against her male dancers singing about threesomes, it would have just been another racy female performance. CBS and that woman proved Adam's point right on air. I can't believe he was so classy, amusing and polite. I would have been raging

  48. 48

    You're right, shame on cbs! I'm straight, and very offended by the hypocrisy.

  49. 49

    who cares. stop talking about it now. adam is gross.

  50. 50

    yea whatever.

  51. 51

    Hey every one we are having a adam lambert cd burning at my house tonight feel welcome to come. . .

  52. 52

    It's hot when girls kiss - it's disgusting when men kiss.

  53. 53

    it's not "blatant homophobia and sexism" when there are possible legal consequences. however, i still think cbs is stupid. if they felt the need to blur out his kiss they shouldn't have shown anything (especially when the clip of madonna and britney is soooo well known that everyone has seen it - why would u need to show it again?). it was absolutely unnecessary to show any clips of anyone kissing.

    regardless of what any tv station does, lambert was still wrong. he obviously did this for attention because he knows he sucks and no one would've remembered it if he didn't pull some stupid stunt like simulating blow jobs and making out with dudes on primetime tv. it's one thing to be gay and proud but you'll never get equal rights if you keep portraying yourself as a giant s&m loving, trashy, tacky, flamboyant queen.. that's what people are scared of/don't want to see and that's why gays are so discriminated against.

  54. 54

    This pissed me off! Talk about double standards!

  55. 55

    Gonna have to side with Perez on this one for a change in as far as if one video is acceptable to show so's the other. Either show both or neither one. One the other hand should something like that be on live TV when kids may be watching; no! Adam should have known better.

  56. 56

    im outraged. no words to say. im very disappointed in our country.

  57. 57

    CBS is homophobic, there's nothing else to say. And that stupid statement was probably written by one of Palin's dumb ass fan who gets his informations from church groups and Fox News. "A legal issue…" WTF? Everything is a "legal issue" in the stupid US: An obese woman sues McDonalds because she's fat, a christian freak sues someone because they said "Fuck", and someone will sue ABC because 2 guys kissed on their channel.

    I officially declare the United States of America as this planet's most stupid nation.

  58. 58

    "That's the best they could come up with????? "
    Why did they even come with anything? They really shouldn't have to. You're such a bandwagon fan, Perez. When Adam wouldn't publicly say he's gay, you were trashing him on a daily basis. You even thought his decision to come out in ROLLING STONE was kind of lame. Now that he's out, loud, and proud, and creating controversy, you love him now more than ever. The only reason I think you have such a vested interest in this story is somehow, even when Adam moves on from it, you will continue to drag it out and even somehow attach your name to it just so you can feed off of it like a true fame whore.

  59. 59

    Because people don't want to see the image and because people feel UNCOMFORTABLE seeing it does NOT make them homophobic! It simply makes them human. One of my BEST friends is gay and he knows where to draw the line. Adam crossed a line that needn't be crossed. He was trying to be "shocking" when all it turned out being was trashy. Have a little respect for YOURSELF and for people. Just because you're an entertainer doesn't mean it makes it okay to do what he did. Nor was it okay for Madonna, Britney, and Christina to do it. It was trashy then and is trashy now.

  60. 60

    I think males kissing is disgusting. Feamles kissing isnt much better, but its not as revolting as males. I approve of CBS monitoring what they display for young people to see. You wouldn't want to corrupt the youth, and normal, clean people of America.

  61. 61

    What kind of circular logic is that?
    The reason the Madonna-Britney image is familiar is BECAUSE it was aired!
    the real reason is mainstream America doesn't want to watch is because homosexual sex is gross, male or female
    Queers should just accept it, it has NOTHING to do with ignorance. We completely understand homosexuality and we are simply disgusted by it. Got it?

  62. 62

    Well, they could have at least gone with 'mornign show' 'children on holiday break could be watching' excuse. But yah, men kiss! :shock, shock, shock!: Shelter your kids from reality all you want, they'll stumble on it eventually.

  63. 63

    what is the difference in seeking it on TV or seeing it down the street…you can't shelter the world forever. If it happens in the real world it happens. If CBS won't have him then they better not make a show or play any show on the channel that has anything with guys kissing because isn't that the same thing…it happens in almost every TV show now so get used to it. The world doesn't revolve around CBS that is why we have the other channels, that is why we have freedom to believe what we want…nobody can change that EVER!

  64. 64

    Well as long as they gave it some real thought its all good. NOT! Time to wake up America - LGBT are here to stay and we're not hiding in the closet!!! There is nothing wrong with two people kissing regardless of gender. Get over it!!!

  65. 65

    Re: devlsadvcte

    Really? I think two guys kissing is HAWT!

  66. Swami says – reply to this


    What a bunch of bullshit!!!! Whatever CBS flack wrote that nonsense outta be fired immediately.

    CBS sucks— no wonder their always in third!!!!

  67. 67

    Im a conservative american, and i HATE how everyone expects the world to conform to be gay and lesbian lovers. You know what? The vast majority of americans are AGAINST gays and gay marriage. Obviously CBS is going to edit out something that would seriously disturb many, MANY people.

    Im sick of being called "homophobic" and a "hater" just because of my christian, and conservative beliefs. You all have your opinion..the rest of America has theres, and noone should be ridiculed or judged for sensoring something that goes against the beliefs of their station.

  68. 68

    thoughts? are you kidding me? what they are not airing isn't "homophobic" it's blatent porn! my children should not be subject to it. perez when you have kids - oh wait, that's right, you are gay and can't even be married. should you EVER HAVE children,adn you allow them to watch things like that when they are not teen's, i fear teh child you would have raised.

  69. 69

    what a bunch of douchelicks.

    "We gave this some real thought. The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning television. The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences."

    LEGAL ISSUES??? Are you serious? Who writes these statements?
    I am extremely appalled at the double standard you are showing the world in blurring out Adam Lambert's kiss. We are a society that elected an African American for president and you're telling me you can't show us two grown men kissing? I feel ashamed and demeaned by your choice of censorship. Moving forward, I will need to adjust my television viewing to homosexual friendly stations.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    cbs sucks too

  72. 72

    lambert had to go out with his flame on high. A.I. starts soon and the next little dick sucker will have to top his act. and so on and so on and so on

  73. Marm says – reply to this


    This is not about homophobia! It's about phallocentrism!! Men like to see 2 hot chicks going at it, but their manhoods cannot handle 2 men going at it. That's why 2 girls making out is viewed as acceptable, even desirable, yet 2 men kissing is not!
    It's not JUST CBS. It's society!

  74. 74

    Re: CutlerFan – Exactly, it is an example of the classless no-morals tacky influence the entertainment industry is having on america when people go on about it being no big deal. Flaunting sexuality, no matter what its orientation, is just a very thin veil to shield people from the lack of talent behind it, which amazingly an alarming amount of people cant seem to see through.

  75. 75


  76. 76

    Re: lifted321 – oh puhleeaaase, dont think you are fooling anyone, you dont want equal treatment, you want SPECIAL treatment, you and every other minority in north america, all you do is complain and whine and want everything to be about you, and when it isnt, you MAKE it an issue about you, as the saying goes the squeaky wheel gets the grease, ..honestly though, its only a matter of time till someone will just REPLACE IT.

  77. 77

    I f-n HAAAAAAAATE America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  78. 78

    I honestly think the whole situation is dumb.
    People are still people,gay or not.Homophobia is around us because people are afraid to say that IT IS OKAY.
    Why is it such a big deal to be attracted to someone of the same sex?
    Its not supposed to be WHO you love,but WHY you love them.
    My own opinion is that ABC should concentrate on what really matters.Not what everyone thinks..
    Girls kissing girls is the same as guys kissing guys.

  79. 79

    Exactly what sort of legal consequences could happen from the Lambert kiss?? None! Soaps now show male/male kisses, so why not a morning show? WTF CBS?

  80. 80

    CBS should have blurred Lamebert's entire performance. It sucked, too.

  81. 81

    Does anyone not see the disturbing part on those photos. "Has been killed in bomb attack…" on the bottom of the adam lambert photo I mean seriously those two things should not be shown together.

    As for the controversy total hypocrisy on CBS, but whatever they will lose whatever lame ass excuse they can find to appease the conservatives that might sue.

  82. 82

    That rep should be ashamed of herself.

    hypocrisy is hypocrisy.

    I'm going to let CBS's advertisers know that I don't deal well with comments like this. I hope you will join me.

  83. 83

    This is getting out of control.. Adam, or any gay person for that matter, or any person period, should be able to kiss anyone they damn well please! Yes, more people are comfortable with 2 girls kissing, but that doesn't make it ok. This is not the America children should be raised in - we need to teach equality and acceptance. All the outrage about this is going to cause so much hate: kids will see everyone upset and end up hurting someone thats gay b/c they will think thats what they are supposed to do. We should be moving forward, not back.

  84. 84

    I like Adam Lamber, he has an AMAZING voice but that performance was kinda crazy. The kiss was fine- I agree that if two girls can kiss then two guys should be able to kiss. But what the heck was with him walking a guy on a leash? Lol I didn't understand that…. going back to the kiss. I don't see why everyone's so shocked that they would censor that out. Two women kissing is seen as sexy but two men kissing is seen as disgusting and gross. Thats just the way life is. People think of lesbians and (especially straight men) they think about the beauty of them having sex, but when they think of gay men they immediately think about anal sex with a nice reach around and that grosses them out. Thats just a sad fact of life.

  85. 85

    As if CBS needs to justify their actions to YOU. Don't make me laugh. You'll latch onto anything to promote the 'poor little gay boy picked on' agenda. Here's a news flash Perezzie … it's not all about you or the segment of the population to which you belong. This is all about the fact that Adam Lambert chose to go over the edge and be totally inappropriate.

  86. 86

    They're diggin a grave for themselves, it's dumb that b/c madonna has done it many times it ok to air really a whole gay community should file a lawsuit for discrimination plus sexism plus so many other things that a good lawyer could dig up on them…. blurring adam's kiss…that's BS!

  87. 87

    I give props to CBS for standing up for their beliefs, and the beliefs of Americans. Theres so many fake people out there who "love" and "support" gays just so that they dont get discriminated against and labelled a homophobic.

    Good for CBS for showing its okay to be conservative and monitor the evil that comes with Gays.

    Re: cs1234 – Exactly.

  91. 91

    who cares about the kiss, they should be worried about the guy whos face got shoved into his crotch, you guys love that? if its a girl or guy, forcing someone to blow you off is something you guys are proud of? oooo and the kiss…it was consensual for brit and madonna and they were both repected artist…lambert is unknown and forcefully makes out with that poor straight guy…how be you guys stop blurring ur vision to see what goes on beyond your obsessions with homophic reactions

  92. elo says – reply to this


    Living in a society where women enjoy unfair and inequitable legal advantages it is no surprise that white man would be subject to this kind of institutionalized prejudice. The idea that it is unfair, even though accepted, would be akin to wanting to punish minorities who become lawyers, police, firemen and college students based on affirmative action even though they were not nearly as qualified and their white male counterparts, You can't just keep whitey down when it's convenient. Either take off the chains from men who never held slaves or punish them all, including the gays.

  93. 93

    Re: goldenbells – I like you.

  94. 94

    To be honest, Adam kissing another guy didn't bother me and I'm straight. In fact I see a lot of people of the same gender making out on tv. But never have i seen on tv, a guy rubbing another mans face into his crotch, I don't give a shit if this involved 1 guy and 1 girl, or 2 guys or 2 girls. THERE ARE FUCKING CHILDREN WATCHING THIS LIVE AWARD SHOW, THAT'S LIKE SHOWING FUCKING PORN TO KIDS.

    Adam Lambert, I don't give a fuck who you kiss on live tv INFACT THATS WONDERFUL THAT YOUR PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE, but don't rub someone else's face on your crotch. Remember that award shows are watched by almost everyone.

    By the way, fucking apologize, Justin Timberlake exposed Janet's tit on live tv, that was an accident, the ppl involved were heterosexual, but there were still complaints and they even had the decency to aplogize.

  95. 95

    The sad this about this whole thing is look at the coverage? The scroll looks like it reads "tive, has been killed in a bomb attack in afghan" ???? Hellooo???

    Why is this so important and a shocker to everyone?

  96. 96

    people will never except or understand that sex sells..period either it be guy/girl or girl/girl, guy/guy the older generations of the world say eww if its a same sex kiss!! yes..it's not a HUGE deal if it is 2 women and it is a double standard without a doubt and CBS/ABC can put all there legal actions and threats..they have to practice performance before the live show anyways dont they??? so could they have seen what he was doing and maybe asked him to limit the oral fixation? And I'll be honest I am not a adam fan at all i feel he sounds like a over-rated rockstar and sounds like garbagehe over does it esp in his performance @ ama (i know i'll get crap from that comment)

  97. 97

    that's such bullshit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  98. 98

    Re: alimariemars – No one wants to see it Because its gross, the world I wish I could raise my kids in would be one in which they wouldnt be subjected to blatant sex marketing everytime they turn on the tv, stereo, a movie or open a magazine. And think that the only way they actually have any future in entertainment their talent is to flash their body all over the place and behave like a classless pervert, and suck up to spiteful fools like perez hilton so he will make people pay attention to them. THAT would be moving forward, instead we are digging our selves straight down into a murky cesspool. This loser lamberts parents must be so proud….right..

  99. 99

    I hope Lamberts career goes directly in the toilet!! ..Thats was a disgusting display he tried to pull off! He embarassed himself totally!! What a loser!! The song sucked and he didnt even sing it well! keep your fuckin homo status in your bedroom asshole.

  100. LCFB says – reply to this


    that was the most homophobic statement i've ever read. it's okay when two girls kiss and showed over and over again because that turns on men and women aren't seen as threatning.
