Tony Award-winning Broadway actress Alice Ripley is being called out by fans after posting a Facebook status update using the gay slur "fag!"

She wrote, referring to a critic of her performance in Next to Normal:

"QUOTE FROM A NUMB BUTT ON BROADWAY WORLD: "I'VE SEEN N2N 8 TIMES WITH ALICE RIPLEY, WHICH IS 7 TIMES TOO MANY." HA HA HA HA!!! THIS FRUSTRATED ACTOR (I WON'T SAY FAG) IS MY NEW BEST FRIEND! THANKS FOR LOOKING DOWN ON LOSERS LIKE US THAT WORK FOR A LIVING. YOU ARE THE OPPOSITE OF A WONDERFUL AUDIENCE."

Some fans are planning a stage door protest at 10 pm on Thursday encouraging others to bring "Alice Hates Fags" signs to the Shubert Alley.

She may want to apologize soon — and mean it!

As one commenter says:

"Homophobia will not be tolerated in the theater community!"

    Mario when you got punched in the face, didn't you use the "F" word also? Hypocrite!!!



  2. 2

    Now you'e given her the heads-up, she'll go out of another exit.



  3. 3

    The most tolerant people in the world - allegedly -the LGBT community - are the MOST intolerant and unable to let it roll off their backs. Free speech for me but not thee! Hypocrites just lying in wait for you to say something stupid, then pounce and smear you. So tolerant of you.



  4. 4

    What a DOUCHE!



  5. 5

    people need to calm the fuck down. i am gay and i am not offended.



  6. 6

    I don't get this, I really don't, all you, Perez, do all day on your website, is calling people names, from bitch to whore and back again??? Pot calling the kettle gay don't you think???
    BTW, I'm gayer than Christmas myself and have no problem with the word, if only for the "sticks and stones"-principle… Seriously, why is it okay for you to call people all sorts of bad names, and now, all of a sudden, when YOU feel (emphasis on FEEL) offended, it's like the whole world is on fire… Bit hypocritical I think, just my two cents…



  7. 7

    Funny. I guess you think you are the only person allowed to say that word.



  8. 8

    So basically she is just like Mario in using that word, but he gets a pass cuz he takes it in the ass. I don't think so kids. Fuck broadway, it's gay as hell anyway.



  9. 9

    funny, i thought you said that too?



  10. 10

    Wow, when did gay people become such self-centered little twits.
    She didn't say anything offensive. If gay people keep acting hyper like this, they will turn everyone against them. Stop making issues outta nothing.



  11. 11

    Wow some people have way too much time on their hands. I loveeeee the gays and actually live with a gay guy, and am all for gay rights.. but holy shit, panties in a knot much? I don't think she meant for this to be offensive. Really, a PROTEST over this?!?!

    PS: She is in broadway. You REALLY truly think she has a problem with gays if she's worked in broadway for this long? Theater is filled with gays!



  12. 12

    just dont get this im more offend by the way Mario used the word than alice did



  13. 13

    That wasn't offensive to me… Get your heads out of your asses



  14. 14

    Yeah-we still have not forgotten you used that word w/will.i.am.
    Should we all protest against you too?!?
    And leave Xtina alone already.



  15. 15

    oh alice!



  16. 16

    You people need to take yourselves less seriously! Why wage a hate campaign on anyone who deigns use a word that you find offensive?! I hope she doesn't apologize, just because we all have to learn to put up with people who occasionally offend us. Get. Over. It!



  17. 17

    Fuck you Alice! Gay people will NEVER support you again! I will never pay to see one of your shows EVER.



  18. 18

    You gays need to chill the fuck out.



  19. 19

    Try to use the f** word here. Whatever reason even if only to make a point. Your post will never appear.



  20. 20

    I LOVE THIS BITCH!



  21. 21

    Funny, Perez used the same word against on e of the Black eyed Peas in a WAY worse way. Practice what you preach!



  22. 22

    Alice Ripley is a goddess… brillantly talented!

    Her quote was in no way homophobic…. just twisted from what it was meant and into something it wasn't.

    What Perez didn't mention in his post was the hateful and hurtful people that post over at BroadwayWorld.com sometimes need alittle bitch slap to put them in their places. What Alice said was nothing in comparision to what they post over there about the broadway actors.

    ALSO… there are at most 3 posters over at BroadwayWorld.com that are threatening to protest. The rest are just taunting the idiots that are throwing a hissy fit over nothing!

    Rock on Alice!



  23. 23

    Перез, ты такая мразь!



  24. 24

    1. I would HARDLY call them " FANS" but more like people who either probably have no clue who ALICE is or Hmm gee people who do not actually know know Alice.

    2. Why is it that some people choose to speak on behalf of the ENTIRE GAY COMM.? Please don't speak on my behalf I have a voice of my own, and well you seem a tad silly when you say the comm. as a whole will never support AR again. Haha….I'll tell you right now, I ALWAYS WILL! And I am sure I am not the only one from the Gay Comm. who will. Check your facts! ;)



  25. 25

    Doesn't Mario use the f-word? Anyway, quite a few of my gay friends use that word. There's a segment of the gay community perpetually looking to be offended. In my opinion, Mario is part of that. Political correctness is like fascism.



  26. 26

    Hi, guys. I know Alice personally, and I can tell you that she is the most generous, loving person I have ever met. She is kind to everyone equally, and she has taught me how to be a better person. People blew this out of proportion. And, SHE HAS apologized for any misunderstanding. Stop now, and go focus on real issues.



  27. 27

    stop talking out of our artsy fartsy ass and give it to us in a plain translation. As in the Kings English and not some kind of artsy hieroglyphics. As in "I saw Spot. I loved Spot. I was mad at Spot. I saw Spot run." That sort of thing.
    What is so hard to understand about that. Oh, I forgot, you are of "the arts", "artsy". Therefore everything must be cleverly worded to sound, oh so 'ol, artsy.



  28. 28

    I am so sick of these rules about words and what you are and aren't allowed to say because of who or what it might offend. It's just dumb. Everyone gets so offended by everything. Just stfu and get on with your lives. If you don't like what someone says, don't listen to it. I choose not to. I don't protest, I just don't listen or watch stuff I don't like of am offended by. Get over it already! Protestors have nothing better to do and are complete fame whores.



  29. 29

    Perez: It is well known in the theater community that she is two scoops of crazy. There is no excuse for her using the word, but let's just say that when you hang out with gays enough you start to adopt their sense of humor. Being a NY gay theater actor, I hear other gay men using that word all the time in jest, yet meaning nothing harmful by it. Get over yourself Perez, and stop pretending like you anything about the New York theater scene.



  30. 30

    People need to chill the fuck out and stop being over sensitive! Alice Ripley is not agaist gay people. The real fucking question is why did that guy see the show 8 times. He sounds like the hater!



  31. 31

    So it's ok for you Mario to call Will I am the same thing, in a way worse way when you got punchd in the face? YOu used the word "F …..T" and then were rejected by the mathew sheppard foundation when you offered to get money from your pathetic law suit you lost, and donate it! It's ok for you to to call the Black Eyed Peas guy that word but she cant use it ?

    And what about calling kids "sluts" and women "fugly"??

    Hypocrite, just like your friend GaGa who preaches self-acceptance and they is kissing your ass as you mock women'slooks.



  32. 32

    that's not even offensive.



  33. 33

    i remember you using that word perez



  34. 34

    ITS ABOUT TIME SOMEONE STOOD UP AND TOOK A STAND AGAINST THE INSTRUSION OF THE HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA INTO OUR LIVES. HOMOSEXUALITY IS JUST PLAIN WRONG, IT IS WORSE THAT MURDER, IT IS A CRIME AGAINST NATURE, LIKE SLEEPING WITH YOUR SISTER OR CANIBALISN. IT JUST ISNT RIGHT



  35. 35

    It almost seems like some gays like to dish it out, but they can't take it. Chill out, gay people!!

    *And, let it be noted that I do realize not all "gays", as they seem to like to be called, are as over sensitive as others are. But, come on, grows some balls for goodness sake and learn not to be so offended all the time.



  36. 36

    You are WAY behind on the news. She has already apologized and it was very sincere. This is old news!



  37. 37

    I love Alice. Although the BroadwayWorld person a douche, Alice should not have FED THE TROLL.

    I stagedoored at N2N and she signed my PLAYBILL in the pouring rain. Granted she had an umbrella handler and I did not! If I had the money I'd see N2N with Alice for every single performance she has left. But for now, 3 will have to do for me!!



  38. 38

    I personally hate the word, but she really didn't mean it in that way! She is an outstanding actress, who was probably frustrated that someone would publicly insult her performance so cruelly (especially a performance that is so emotionally grueling).
    Ms. Ripley is most certainly not homophobic, and it is a shame that her comment has been taken so out of proportion!!



  39. 39

    why are my posts not showing up?



  40. 40

    ugh this is just absurd. alice is the most amazing loving person ever. you should take this post down.
