Arkansas School Board Member FINALLY Apologizes And RESIGNS After Homophobic Facebook Rant!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayAnderson Cooper

Check out (above) Arkansas' Midland School District board member Clint McCance appearing on Anderson Cooper 360 to publicly apologize for his disgusting, homophobic and hateful rant on his Facebook page.

Well, it's not really an apology, he mostly just stutters and refuses to answer direct questions from Cooper, but he does announce his resignation from the position.

Good! There's no need for that kind of hate, ESPECIALLY from someone influencing the lives of countless children.

Such a shame.

Thoughts??

    I really like the way Anderson handled this . I don't think anyone else would have been as even handed . I give the guy credit for manning up and going on the air though I still don't feel he fully understands what he did wrong



  2. 2

    What a disgusting, vile human being. I only wish I could see these so called christians meet their maker one day. God doesn't take to kindly to people who hate as they hide behind his name.



  3. 3

    What a CLOSET HOMOSEXUAL!!! All the stuttering! OMG!!!



  4. 4

    How sad, it's a sad world we live in when it's ok to be gay like Perez and say hateful things about anybody he wants to but this guy does the same thing and he gets in trouble, double standard.



  5. 5

    iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiignorant! This is why gay people flock to civilized large cities.



  6. 6

    Hmmm, just sounds like they made hiim apologize. Any person with a brain can tell he really meant it and probably hates gay people even more now. Oh well , you cant win them all.

    I admire the way Anderson handled this as well - I would have let my emotions get in the way for sure. I'm proud of Perez for taking these issues more seriously and using his voice for good - he makes a very valid point that this guy still is firm in his convictions and, when asked if he would kick his children out if they were gay, he said "Time will tell." That's a horrible answer, sir. You need to think about why you would risk losing your children over something so insignificant. I guess you can't change everyone overnight.

    As much as I detest the words he used in his online rant - I have to give the man kudos for having the guts to talk to Anderson Cooper last night.
    I actually believe he is sorry too.
    i hate what he did - but.



  9. 9

    What he said was hateful but hopefully the apology was sincere and he learned a valuable lesson.
    btw, I'm gay and believe in forgiveness and not a religious bone in my body.



  10. 10

    The douchebag has NOT resigned. He said he intends to. Not the same thing.
    It's far from a done deal until he officially resigns



  11. 11

    This a a prime example of what a southern redneck acts and talks like. They are a different breed of human or animal.



  12. 12

    Some people really should just be taken out back and shot. He is a small minded disgusting man!



  13. 13

    I'd just like to say that this man has no right to talk on behalf of the Christian community and his views are certainly NOT shared by other Christians. I'm a Christian and would NEVER condone the deaths of children because they're gay, or for anything else. I think Cooper handled this really well, and just know that this man's ignorant and narrow-minded views are not shared by all Christians. He shouldn't even have the audacity to call himself one.



  14. 14

    AND AS FOR FINALLY RESIGNS, where are the other links, so I know how long this crap has been going on? and FINALLY, he was a SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER, not a TEACHER. He had no direct contact with STUDENTS, so, NO MATTER WHAT HIS VILE VIEWS were, his is just or was JUST ONE MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD…. he will get his punishment in the future, because he was on tv, and even though he resigned, his name will be 'googled' and he will have this stigma attached for a long time. So stop your BS mario, he apologized.



  15. 15

    What this guy said was really vile and disgusting but if Anderson Cooper really wants to help these kids who commit suicide he should come out and set an exmple that it's OK to be gay. He would be a very good role model for gay teens to look up to that you can be successful in life even if your gay….a prime example of their message "it gets better." Perez why don't you suggest this to Anderson…many people already know he's gay so why not just admit it openly on his show.



  16. 16

    Wow, he actually found someone to breed with. I bet his wife is a real winner too.



  17. 17

    I wish Anderson would have asked him if he was a bottom.

    That would have been great.



  18. 18

    when are we ever going to get past the labels? who the hell cares what your personal preferences are? as long as you dont try to force your will on me.

    yes this guy is wrong, but is calling him names any better?



  19. 19

    Bullshit of course he meant it. He is just trying to take it back now cause everyone knows about it and hates him.



  20. 20

    @wslandry: That is a VERY ignorant to say. Not all southern rednecks are like that.. they don't ALL talk and act like that. You are just as ignorant as the man in the video. Shame on you!



  21. 21

    ha wait the people on the page are calling him vile but do you realize the vile shit you write on this site? *roll my eyes*

    >>but i did watch this last night and i got the feeling he is upset that he got caught. And his response were like he was a child who didn't fully understand what he did but knows he has to be in trouble.

    Lesson… be careful what you type online.



  22. 22

    Is this a celebrity website or a gay blog? I think it's turned into a gay blog. Nothing against gays, but I just want to read about celebs. From now on, I'm going to another site.



  23. 23

    well if he really does resign - and I have a feeling he's hoping all this will just die down so he doesn't have to - I'm sure there's a KKK Grand Wizard position waiting for him. what a piece of shit hick -



  24. 24

    Re: fliffie8 – I dislike perez as much as the next person but to say what he does and what this guy did are the same thing only shows your ignorance. The vile nonsense perez has said in the past is bad and the same as bullying, but I've never seen him wish aids, death or suicide on someone or a community of human beings. Grow up and deal with the fact that it is no longer acceptable or going to be tolerated to bash homosexuals.



  25. 25

    That so called apology was everything but. That appearance was so forced by the powers that be! They basically told him you do this and resign and mabye we will let you work in this state again……. LOSER!!



  26. 26

    Also he only apologized for his language and nothing else. He just kept repeting himself over and over…. He's not even well spoken…..He sounds like a CHUMP!



  27. 27

    This guy is a piece of shit. His apology is crap and you can tell he doesn't mean a word of it. I really hope his children come out of the closet as a slap in the face



  28. 28

    Re: fliffie8 – Do you have a brain injury?? Perez has never once said that he wished someone would commit suicide, and your comment is supporting someone who wishes children would die because they are gay. You need a lot of therapy.



  29. 29

    I'm so embarrassed for that clint mccance.



  30. 30

    Another HATEtroSEXUAL who sucks cock & takes it up the ass . Look 4 him at the book store in the trannie dept.



  31. 31

    OK now, do we hang him?



  32. 32

    Do we reinstate death penalty for homophobic rants?
    Grow up, homos!



  33. 33

    WHAT AN INSINCERE APOLOGY!!!!! He apologizes more for his language than the IDEAS behind what he said. DOUCHER! Just sorry for the BACKLASH!



  34. 34

    Defending the gays is the new 'must do' nowadays. Rapists get a free pass, abusers, paedophiles (Polanski i'm talking about you) but God forbit if someone offends a gay !!!



  35. 35

    Redneck pig.



  36. 36

    Re: justtfax – Actually the school board is more powerful than the teacher because the board sets the curriculum and the guidelines for the whole school.



  37. 37

    For the record, all Arkansans should not be lumped in with this ass. There are jerks like this form all parts of the country.



  38. 38

    Re: Twoboys2 – I hope you don't think all poeple wprofess to be Chrisitans are like this… I think that the problem with "Christians" today is that they forget to be "Christ like". If people would stop trying to be God,telling people how to live, the world would be a much better place.



  39. 39

    Anderson Cooper should get an humanitarian award for staying calm while talking to that poor excuse of a man and Christian. I wish the Homophobes would stop using God as an excuse to hate and discriminate.



  40. 40

    Hateful asshole who has NO right having ANYTHING to do with children!!!
    This has NOTHING to do with his "language" it has everything to do with his hateful, ignorant beliefs!! Which he was VERY careful NOT to apologize for….
    SHAME ON HIM>>>>SHAME ON THE SCHOOL BOARD>>>>SHAME ON EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR HIM>>>>



  41. 41

    If they are weak minded twats then go ahead and kill yourself.



  42. 42

    Good!



  43. 43

    I have to say that I'm shocked that an educated individual would engage in such childish and hateful speech toward children. But what really, really is glaringly obvious is his lack of honor, integrity and complete inability to articulate his point of view. If he considers homosexuality to be against his religious principles (for instance)..then he should just be a man and say so ! But, he just sounds like an insecure schoolyard bully. I cant imagine how humiliating (for him and his family) for him to be called out for his words and he doesn't even have courage or ability to back it up. I bet people in his community thought he was a good upstanding Christian man of honor… he showed himself to be otherwise…its a shame.



  44. 44

    its fucked up how society views/influences things; most people are close minded, judgmental, or just dont give a fuck. i wish that people would realize that people are who they are and you cant choose who you are. whether it be with your sexual preference, or a mental disorder, or a learning disability. we are all people. we should all start acting like people and stop acting like fucking monsters.



  45. 45

    A total DISGRACE to humanity!!! A disgrace to his family!! He is clearly NOT sorry at all! Total ignorant HICK. He clearly thinks he is better than other people because his lifestyle is the "right" way to live. His attitude and way of thinking reminds me of HITLER!! Spreading hate that way! It's sick! Totally UnChristian and unAmerican behavior! He doesn't have to like that there are Gay people in the world but he better learn to grow up and accept it! And he better stop being a bully!! Everyone has the right to be who they are without some jerk like this abusing them!!! He makes me so sick!



  46. 46

    The guy is obviously "southern, red-neck, poor white trash"!! People like him don't deserve a second chance. Seems like all the right wing christian conservatives are just a bunch of evil, hate mongers. One reason I don't believe in organized religions of any kind, very dangerous and destructive.



  47. 47

    OK, the man has apologised without reservation, over and over after every single probe by Anderson. This is clearly a man who detests homosexuality, yet he has faced up to the consequences of his action, humbled himself and departed.

    That was a very difficult interview for him to deal with, and even though I am gay, and I know he would never like me, and would despise my sexual orientation, I still respect him. That took courage.
