Oh for goodness sake! GET OVER IT, bb.
Back in May, Dane Cook came under fire when he reportedly threatened American Idol reject Ian Bernardo after the contestant stole the microphone from him at the live finale.
Bernado claims that Cook and his manager made some offensive comments about his sexual preference and threatened to shove the microphone up his ass, and now he's suing the reality show for $300 million!
According to legal documents, Bernado alleges that the producers were behind his flamboyant behavior, and instructed him to be outrageous and to "gay it up" during the live event! However, he now asserts that they hung him out to dry and did not support him after the incident with Cook.
Sounds to us like someone had no problem having his sexuality exploited when it was giving him screen time, but now that things didn't turn out the way he wanted he's sour grapes!
So effing lame.
