Cirque du Soleil Apologizes AGAIN For Criss Angel!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayCriss AngelLGBT


Can't he just keep his mouth shut?!

On Saturday night, Criss Angel offended the audience of his show Believe with another homophobic comment and left Cirque du Soleil to clean up his mess!

The illusionist began to do his skit with the jr. magician and said, “Just think, if you were a real magician you could get any girl in this audience that you wanted.” Criss pauses for a moment and added, "or in your case any guy.”

It became clear that he expected the audience to erupt in laughter at this "joke," but all he received were some nervous laughs and boos! And from then on, the LGBT members of the crowd booed every time he finished an act.

Complaints were plentiful and Cirque du Soliel has apologized to those offended by Criss' comments and offered complimentary tickets to other shows for their inconvenience.

Wonder how long this shiz is gonna last with him!

    How was that homophobic? If the guy was gay then I don't understand…? He offended a gay guy by telling him he could get any guy in the room? Okaaaay…

  2. 2

    Big fucking deal, it's a non-issue but since it's gay related you're trying to make it look controversial. At least he didn't call him a fa**ot. Remember that? That shiz is gonna last forever with you douchebag.

  3. 3

    And you never apologize for any of your insults to women, straights, minorities, etc. so fuck off and stick to trolling in the gym.

  4. 4

    well, gays are known for being over dramatic - if it walks like a gay and talks like a gay….you better not call it gay!!!

    I, personally, did not see how that was homophobic in any way.
    I think we should just stop taking life so seriously ALL THE TIME,
    and just learn to…laugh at ourselves once in a while. :/
    It's healthy!
    It's what makes life fun!
    If we didn't, it would be so boring. D:
    So everyone, just chill out, and live a little.
    And please remember that celebrities are human beings, too. If we can make mistakes, so can they. It's just, they have to be more careful because they are under a spotlight…

    if the jr magician is gay, then the comment was appropriate — yawn

  10. 10

    I'm gay and I don't see what the big deal is??? My straight friends and I banter like this all the time.

  11. 11

    I don't understand how this was homophobic?? Why would the gay people boo? So he should have keep the guy in "the closet". Stupid for someone to get upset over this comment.

  12. 12

    I agree!! What was the big deal? Some AMerican's are just too damn serious and get offended so damn easily!

  13. 13

    wtf? That is in no way a homphobic comment, and if people think it is then they've got serious problems.

  14. 14

    I am gay and do not see how that comment is homophobic???

  15. 15

    Criss is a clueless moron .. about so many things
    He's lucky to have a good job. Shut up and entertain

  16. 16

    Yeah, I don't understand how that is homophobic at all. I'm no fan of him either, but this just seems like another of your ridiculous personal vendettas that do nothing but discredit you and your 'reporting' of 'stories'.

  17. 17

    It's not homophobic to tell a gay guy he could get any guy in the room. Seems like you are trying to make something out of nothing.

  18. 18

    Who's afraid of the word homophobic?Inside outside joke?I would be more offended by being told to shut up.You can say what ever you want but I can't?Intelligence is a virtue and so is patience.

  19. 19

    Oh so what!! I am not a fan of his, but LIGHTEN UP! It was not a homophobic comment. It's not as if he said, "GAYS SHOULD DIE" or anything of that sort. Stop being so damned touchy and over-sensitive. Good grief.

  20. 20

    I'm not quite sure how it's homophobic?
    It's not like the dropped the f bomb. I have a feeling that who ever complained is making a mountain out of an ant hill.

  21. 21

    Mario…If you are Mario writing this bs …get a fucking life .

  22. 22

    Perhaps it was in the manner this was articulated?

  23. 23

    The audience waaaay overreacted, it's just a joke. Plus, if the guy WAS gay, how is it even offensive?

  24. 24

    I hate to beat a dead horse, but WTH? Why is that homophobic? Would someone from the LGBT explain this to me, because I don't get it. Can you say SUPERSENSITIVE? That is the problem when certain groups are formed. They just look for a reason to be pissed off and offended. Get over yourselves already. 90% of the world does not care if you are gay or not. Stop focusing on the 10% that do and move on.

  25. 25

    i dont think you understand what homophobia actually is. surely the people in the audience who were uncomfortable with the suggestion that the guy might be gay and booed that suggestion were more of the 'homophobe' tab? Surely Criss Angels comment was more 'im including everyone in this act, no matter who they would like to sleep with'.

  26. 26

    That wasn't homophobic. Stop being so damned thin skinned.

  27. yup says – reply to this


    ONe the first page you want the donet ask dont tell law taken away, but now this guy cant talk about gayness openly? WTH? You cant have it both ways! What your saying here is he cant openly speak about someone being gay! HELLLLLLOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. 28

    Stop blocking my comment, anyways the LGBT that was booing was probably you.

  29. 29

    That shit is so stupid, some people really need to lighten up!

  30. 30

    There is nothing homophobic about that comment. Get a life Perez.

  31. 31

    Soooooo… how is it homophobic to say what he did??? Its not like he said, …"or any guy, you fairy.' He didn't use a slur, and for all anyone knows, the jr magician might be gay and criss was being honest and NOT offending a gay man by only saying he could get any girl he wanted. Geez, people make WAAAAYYYYY too much over the simplest and DUMBEST things. THAT'S why we are in the shape we're in. All anyone wants to do is point fingers, sue and get offended.

  32. 32

    HA!! just read through a good many of the comments left here Perez. Do YOU ever read your own stuff? Give me a break. The only reason you write this CRAP is because you can't find anything real to write about. I've been noticing you are at LEAST a week behind with most of your stories lately, and seems the good majority are just a bunch of jealous, bitchy rantings. As MUCH as I hate YOU, and your teenage whiny girl personality, I still read this mess. Though it looks like most people who read here feel the same way. This site may get LOTS of hits, but you never bother to mention that most of the comments are negative Perez. You USED to be a TINY bit legit, not any more, and I don't know if you realize, people just don't like you. :)

  33. 33

    LGBT members booed him? Well that's fucking mature.

  34. 34

    "And from then on, the LGBT members of the crowd booed every time he finished an act." If this is true than that shows how mature there members really are congratulations on reducing yourself to act like 7 year old children.

  35. 35

    His show SUX!!!!!!! I'm ashamed to say I actually paid to see him in Vegas, DO NOT GO! Everything he does is a joke and it's ridiculous that he's getting paid what he is for the crap he does on stage. Seriously, I should have walked out.

  36. 36

    get over it its not a big fucking deal. quit crying about this shit already

  37. 37

    I don't think he's going to be there much longer. I saw his show this past summer and it SUCKED! No one was clapping and it was really lame. I was asked to participate in the show before it started and my job was to hold up a sign that said "I love you Criss!" I didn't know what it said at first so I held it up when they told me to and he was like "Oh wow you made this for me! How nice, let me give you a kiss." He had to get someone to pretend they were a big fan. LAME.

  38. 38

    I'm just happy that his show is getting booed. It is horrible, for those of you who haven't yet overpaid to go see it, and he's just a giant wannabe-copperfield cock. But otherwise, stop being so sensitive.

  39. 39

    The pussification of America. Everyone is so damn sensitive now.

  40. 40

    OMG!!! What was said was not wrong! Are gays getting as wierd as the blacks? Everything is an issue. Gesh get a life. I am female and I am not offended. But I am offended that you are offended.

  41. 41

    i can't believe they haven't fired him and canceled his show yet. he's an idiot.

  42. 42

    Good grief!!!!!!! How is that homophobic?!!!! He was just stating the obvious! Perez you really need to get a life and stop picking at the smallest things. Criss had no reason to apologize.

  43. 43

    huh? homophobic how? I think you're grasping at straws here, Perez. I mean, I hate Criss Angel as much as the next person, but that wasn't homophobic.

  44. 44

    That crappy show is still running?

  45. 45

    How was that homophobic? Is the dude gay? Because if he is then all he was doing was clarifying that the guy liked guys, not girls. What's the issue? There is no controversy here. Lucka (#7) is so right. The prejudice won't stop until people stop crying over every little non-issue. Pick your battles. Save it for when it really counts. Society unfairly does enough to bring gay people down. Stop perpetuating this shit and hold your head up high. This isn't helping your cause. Each time someone like PH smell smoke when there aint a fire, you take two steps back. STOP!

  46. 46

    How was that homophobic? I feel that, instead, it was sweet of him to actually remember that there were gay audiences too, although in a small percentage. He's paying attention to gays, Perez.. Isn't that what you demand all the time? For your community to be admitted?

    Comment aside. Chris Angel is HOT!

  48. 48

    Let's just assume that you, pig-vomit, were the celebrity assistant for the evening and he said the same to you. You would leer your crooked-toothed horse-faced grin, ogle and mentally undress all the teenaged boys in the audience, and think yummy yummy screw in your fat head.

  49. 49

    When you are as ugly as he is within and without, you hate yourself and all men!

  50. 50

    wow chris angle is so yummy! extra salty

  51. 51


  52. 52

    i think he just meant it in good fun i dont think he was being homophobic but his crowd took it that way…

  53. 53

    Yeah, seriously, Perez. How many times have YOU insulted women and straights. Quite being so damn sensitive and MAN UP! Nothing he said was homophobic, if anything he took consideration of the fact that maybe the guy was gay. Much ado about nada, Perez.

  54. cgm81 says – reply to this


    whatever - that is nothing. get a life and get over it.

  55. 55

    well it wasnt a joke he said any girls or guys his thinking i guess but i dont think it was a joke to gay people

  56. 56

    "OR IN YOUR CASE" was setting up a joke at the guy's expense, obviously. Like they do for fat jokes, etc. This is his second or third time with this shit.

  57. 57

    How is telling a gay guy he could have any guy he wanted homophobic? I don't get it. Perez, you are so one-sided. When something comes up with a celeb you don't like, you make a big deal out of nothing.

  58. 58


  59. 59

    it's seriously the shittiest show in vegas right now. my friends and i left and one said 'the only thing he mind freaked was our wallets.' get him out of there.

  60. 60

    don't understand why this was homophobic.

  61. 61

    that wasn't a homophobic joke at all, it wasn't degrading or a bash on homosexuals. this is the problem with the world: everything is taken so seriously. lighten up.

  62. 62

    seriously perez its people like criss who keep your obnoxious talentless ass working. what's the real deal you through a pass at him and almost got decked. your new years resolution should have been to get a real job, and leave people alone!

  63. 63

    guess some homos are just being pain in the "behind"….there was nothing offending! if u're gay- u're gay! lol deal with it :D

  64. 64

    a harmless one… actually it shows that he considers gays and not-gays kinda equal…

  65. 65

    It was just a joke… and it was probably true anyway.

  66. 66

    Re: Lucka – You nailed it right on the head. No pun intended. You are correct though. This is what make conservatives like me just now want anything to do with gays.

  67. 67

    Re: NancyOttawa – You just described a liberal

  68. 68

    and once again prez not everyone has to like gays i like gays but i have friends who don't but i dont judge them no everyone is going to like everyone sometimes people say the wrong thing and sometime they usally dont mean any of it i love Criss Angel and i will always love him ya and i think the dude who was gay should have tooken that as a compliament cause pretty much he told the dude he was good looking enough to get anyone just cause you are guy doesn't mean you have to support gays on everything sometimes you guys can be bigger divas the us girls

  69. 69

    he's soo FAKE! why is he on this site ?

  70. 70

    This is so BS…. !

    I was there… I didnt hear any boos…

    His jokes was well recieved by teh crowd..

    Stop making things up about Criss Angel… he is an illusionist you know.. Havent you learned from FERGIE?
