    Sorry Perez, I fail to see how this is in any way homophobic. You're flipping shit for no reason.

  2. Mtl23 says – reply to this

    KOL Suck anyway there was only one good song and one ok song on their whole album the rest was just filler garbage. blah who care about them.



  3. 3

    Oh COME On! That was FUNNY!!! Why cant gay people LAUGH at themselves every once in a while?



  4. 4

    Wow, Ryan is an egotistical freak. It's obvious that the Kings of Leon guy was insulting RYAN, not the WHOLE DAMN GAY COMMUNITY. But alas, you can't say anything against one bitch ass gay without damning the gay community? Fuck that shit. It makes me want to support the mormons who picket gay marriage.



  5. 5

    That's the most glaring example of homophobia you've ever seen, telling a gay man to buy a bra??? Wow, you have lived a sheltered life my fat homo friend. God Damn, I have to stop comming to this site. I was so into gay rights and respecting people for who they are, but over time, sadly, I find myslef disliking gay people to a point that I don't even want to associate with them because of the shit you write and holywood idiots say. It's sad, and it is wrong, but I can't help it. Being exposed to your gay agenda and specail, not equal rights demands has made me bitter and really dislike the gay community. I'm both ashamed and pissed off. It's my own fault though, no one made me read your bullshit, and before I knew it, you ruined me opinion. FUck off dick head, if all of us were as sensitive as your gay ass, we'd all kill ourselves. And by the way, nice way to politicize the tragic deaths of gay youths, by relating that to KOL telling him to buy a bra. He should be proud.



  6. 6

    Here's the original tweet Ryan Murphy made that KOL responded to, but Perez conveniently forgot to mention: "Fuck you, Kings of Leon. They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.”



  7. 7

    not surprised that Perez is siding Ryan Murphy…when it comes to gay issues, Perez has tunnel vision.



  8. 8

    This was clearly not a homophobic comment. He was just equating Ryan to a whiney bitch, aka a chick. That is all.



  9. 9

    I love and watch Glee. BUT if an artist or group of artists don't want to be featured on a program, let it go. KOL are AMAZING musicians. They don't have to be on Glee to be an inspiration to young kids and adults. I think this whole deal is RIDICULOUS. Prior to the recent exchange between Ryan M, and Nathan F, Ryan was coming off as an extremely bitter betty. Now, unfortunately its going to be even more sensationalized and KOL are now going to be attacked as homophobic. ugh. Annoying. Stay strong KOL. You don't need Glee. and Glee…keep doing what you do. But don't make people feel bad if they don't want to allow you to use their music.



  10. 10

    I didn't take Nathan's tweet in a homophobic way at all. I took it as, Ryan Murphy is being a little girl because he can't get KOL to allow their music to be on his stupid show. I love gay people but sometimes they just need to shut their mouths. Not every negative thing someone says about them is homophobic.



  11. 11

    I love when gay people cause an issue, get called on it, then use homophobia as a defense.



  12. 12

    He said "Fuck you, Kings of Leon". How is that gentlemanly in any way? They're both assholes who make shitty music. It's like trying to pick between a giant douche and a turd sandwich.



  13. 13

    He's an asshole!… I love GLEE for those reasons, make those "outcasts" feel not alone… KOL SUCKS!



  14. 14

    OK wait a minute he sent a F bomb to the KOL, and he gets mad at them having a reaction??? Doesnt make sense how this got turned around, the guy should have been able to handle himself in a professional manner and stated his reasons for being dissappointed with KOL not wanting to be gleeified, instead he sent out a F bomb and expects his statement to sit well with everyone. So basically his own innappropriate statement was met with another. I didnt see this as being a homophobic attack, no different than telling someone to put on thier big girl pants. TOO SENSITIVE, he knows how you like to be involved in gay issues so he used you as backup to the juvenile fight he started. Why arent you telling him that he started it and should have been more adult? If he expects respect he should know how to give it as well!!



  15. 15

    I really hate Glee.



  16. 16

    People need to stop throwing the gay and black card out so early. We are creating an ultra sensitive movement. He clearly meant that Ryan was acting like a woman. A grown man Gay or not should not have responded to his bands denial the way he did. Nothing is mentioned when he calls the band ignorant.



  17. 17

    i feel Ryan Murphy is acting like a cranky bitch …and i hate that fuckin show i hope it gets cancelled…

    TEAM KINGS OF LEON…..



  18. 18

    RYAN MURPHY NEEDS TO CHANGE HIS TAMPON…..



  19. 19

    He wasn't being homophobic at all, he was calling Ryan Murphy a little girl!



  20. 20

    This is not homophobic. This is just a well deserved answer to what that douche said before.



  21. 21

    Geez, I really don't understand the gay community. Why does every single comment have to be homophobic? I'm have nothing against gays, but seriously why are they sensitive? I don't like KOL but it ticks me off, it's a free country freedom of speech just because gays get offended with everything we say we have to be censored or it's easy homophobic. I bet in there community they are judgemental, rude, and offensive as well.



  22. 22

    Re: Monika_Wirkkanen – you want to support mormons who picket against gay marriage? go to hell you fuck bag. seriously, this is a horrible reason for you to decide you want to turn your back on fellow HUMAN beings. go fuck yourself you fucking dildo.



  23. 23

    I definitely don't agree with idiotic stereotyping (though you, Perez, keep purporting those stereotypes), but let's not forget that Ryan Murphy was the one to tell KOL "Fuck you" and called them "self-centered assholes" for not letting Glee license their songs, which by the way is perfectly valid. Murphy was being a drama "queen" and he had to drag the rest of the gay community into it.



  24. 24

    Ryan Murphy took great pleasure in humiliating and degrading women in his 'nip/tuck' series. So this misogynist can't now take a fucking JOKE ? Fuck you Ryan and FUCK YOU.



  25. 25

    I agree with OH RESIST HER , you are flippin your shit for nothing. If anyone should be pissed off it should be women's rights groups. I guess he is implying Ryan is sounding like a woman?



  26. 26

    not to be rude, but shove ur apology f-hole. just sayin…



  27. 27

    Perez,

    You are mistaken. This is not homophobic, but sexist. Nathan's comments are suggesting that Ryan is like a woman, and that being woman-like is a bad thing. He is not suggesting that Ryan is like a gay person. If he were, then I could see your point. However, like I said, he is using feminine qualities to insult someone. I think you and pretty much the rest of the world (who mistakes this sort of thing for homophobia) need to take a closer look.



  28. 28

    I Am gay and i am so sick of gays being such fucking babies. grow a damn pair - i didn't think there was anything homophobic in what nathan wrote. Ryan is the one that started this stupidity with saying "how dare you say no to Glee." Fuck Glee. Glee is the worst show and Lea Michelle can't act.



  29. 29

    That's not homophobic! He was implying that he was being a whiny little girl probably! Plus did he not start it by cussing them? There are people getting legitimately bullied for their sexuality everyday, get a grip! Ryan Murphy is a fucking idiot who is trying to get sympathy (by making people think he is being bullied for being gay) and turn people against KOL because they won't let their music appear on his crap show. He is just throwing his toys out the pram. How about you do some REAL AND NON-BIASED reporting in future, that includes all the facts, Perez? That might make you look like less of a fool.



  30. 30

    How exactly is that homophobic? Sound like he was telling him to quit whining like a girl.



  31. 31

    I'm so sick of these Glee people.
    Can we stop watching so it will go away?



  32. 32

    that Glee guy seems to be a bit of a music nazi who routinely slams musicians who don't want their songs sung on his shitty show. get over it and move on - there's a lot of bad music out there that I'm sure would eagerly await your call.



  33. 33

    Re: J_Baby – No offense, and I don't even think you realize that you did this, but by saying "little girl" you are doing just the same thing as the KOL drummer. His remarks were not homophobic, but sexist (he used femininity as an insult). A lot of people mistake this for homophobia, but really it's anti-woman. I'm not personally offended by any of this at all, but I just think it's interesting that people (coughPEREZcough) are so quick to call homophobia, but sexism just gets brushed under the rug. It's also interesting that sexism is basically acceptable in our society, but racism and homophobia are such hot button topics.



  34. 34

    As a gay dude, I didn't find the comment homophobic at all. Does every little thing have to relate to kids killing themselves? That bald man needs to lighten up. Not everyone loves your stupid show.



  35. 35

    Re: justagirl1101 – In fact, I see a lot of you are saying "like a little girl." It's weird how that just comes so naturally to us.



  36. 36

    Oh my God. This is why everyone hates gay people. They can not take a F#@king joke. A bra? Oooooh! BURN!

    It is not like he pulled an Alec Baldwin and called his daughter a "Rude thoughtless, little pig".



  37. 37

    I dont think this is homophobic, I think he is referring to Ryan acting like a woman, making something bigger than actually is, being overdramatic, I think he is referring to the stereotypes of women.



  38. 38

    Re: Icemochalatte – stop speaking about gay people as a whole like were all the same and all think the same. as a gay person, i don't give a FUCK about this persons tweet.



  39. 39

    Dearest Perez-
    This is blatant misogyny! Not homophobia! It appears Mr. Followill thinks he was acting like a lady or perhaps a "bitch" or "bitching" about it? Stop and think about it before you post. Not everyone who refers to femininity is referencing homosexuality. Perhaps there aren't enough women in your life for you to understand the plight of the woman is just a much a struggle and just as long have we been struggling as the homosexual. Taboos are everywhere even in this modern age. THINK about the world around, and about other societal groups besides your own. You are a man, you are a gay man, you are a Latino, you are a celebrity. You belong to many different parts of society. As does a man like Mr. Followill. A misogynist, a man, a southern man, a musician and a celebrity. Is he homophobic? The jury is out on this one.



  40. 40

    Is Ryan Murphy single? Because him and Perez should totally date- they are perfect for each other.



  41. 41

    Wow!!!! All I can say is talk about reaching!!!

  42. Blunt says – reply to this


    42

    First of all he deserved it, Ryan attacked him first perez, smh you are a bias fool.



  43. 43

    Ryan started this mess by dragging the Kings into this petty crap over his stupid show. After his scathingly mean, ignorant and uncalled for rant against the Kings in that magazine, Nathan had every right to respond. If Ryan can dish it out, he should be able to take it when it’s dished back out to him. Don’t start none, won’t be none. Team Kings!



  44. 44

    I cannot stand Kings of Leon, but seriously, that statement was not homophobic. I think the response had to do with Murphey acting like a bitch, not him being gay.



  45. 45

    I side with KOL on this one, I used to love Glee, but that show just rots the brains outta people. It DESTROYS brilliant songs that should never be covered in that stupid pop way they all are. KOL are a ROCK band, they don't want they're music to sound like Britney. End of. Ryan needs to stop crying that more and more people are rejecting the offer of their songs to be covered and get over it.



  46. 46

    Doesn't a phobia mean you're afraid of something? So, why do you think his comments mean that he is "afraid" of gays. Geez, the gay community is so sensitive, and it's people like Ryan Murphy who make gays look bad. If I were to say to a heterosexual guy why don't you grow some balls, you gays would probably think there was nothing wrong with that, would you? So, I'll say Ryan Murphy, man up and stop whining (or, is that "homophic" too?).



  47. 47

    Perez probably wants to eat the corn out of Ryan's shit



  48. 48

    Re: AlexPoland – I applaud you sir!!!



  49. 49

    How can anyone think that donkey's comments are "funny". Any hate-spewer who has "fans" should realize how dangerous words can be and that young people especially are very impressionable. If K.O.L. don't care for Glee, than simply say "no thanks" how hard is that? In this day and age, he's just lost a big chunk of his fan base by being so ignorant.

  50. boo says – reply to this


    50

    i dont think that was meant to be homophobic at all. i think he was just telling him to stop being a bitch about it. i think the comment would have been the same whether it was towards a straight or gay man. people need to relax.



  51. 51

    Think about it folks: Do you really think Mr. Followill would have said all of that if Ryan Murphy was heterosexual?



  52. 52

    I highly doubt the KOL dude even knew Ryan Murphy was gay when he wrote that. I'm all about supporting the LGBTT community but I honestly think they are dumping on this comment for no reason. Obviously Murphy has some personal beef with KOL that we all don't know about. lol.



  53. 53

    RYAN Murphy + Nathan Followill = BOTH IDIOTS — PEREZ you failed to point out the immature, offensive things Ryan said to KOL just for them not wanting their music on his show. [["Fuck you, Kings of Leon," Murphy says in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "They're self-centered assholes."]] Seems like Ryan needs to take his own advice — GLEE is not the center of the Universe. Nathan Followill is a homophobic dumbass.



  54. 54

    How come you're not asking Ryan Murphy for an apology for saying "Fuck you" because he couldn't use their music? Since when does he get to dictate which bands let him use their music on his shit show? Does he really expect everyone to say yes? KOL didn't even know what Glee was, which is part, if not most of the reason they said no. Of course, if they'd seen this sorry excuse for a tv show, they'd say no anyway. It's SO fucking overrated! Lip syncing to auto-tuned pre-recorded tracks? No fucking thanks! And the line about education of children-bullshit, if I ever heard it. Children shouldn't even be watching Glee, asshat. That's why it's on at 9 pm. And for the record, I don't think he meant anything about Murphy being gay with those comments. If anything, he was calling him a prissy chick. So if anyone should be offended, it's women. I wouldn't expect you to take your gay blinders off and recognize this, though.



  55. 55

    A lot of supposedly "homophobic" insults are actually misogynistic. Besides the whole femininity as an insult thing, there's the insult of sex roles. For example, you only ever hear gay men being insulted for "taking it in the ass" or "sucking dick," as opposed to "giving it in the ass" or "getting sucked."

    You know who else "takes it in the ass" and "sucks dick"? Women.



  56. 56

    ewwww. i've always liked kings of leon but their drummer sounds like a douche! that's such a rude and ignorant thing to say.



  57. 57

    Kings of Leon sucks and people commenting on this sites might say that they weren't being homophobes but by what these comments say after their opinion on the incident is utterly pathetic. Why do people not like gays. It's part of our society. Maybe straight guys should grow some balls and stop being dicks about every little thing that they encounter on this site. Why are you on here then? And this is coming from a heterosexual.



  58. 58

    Would it be ok if he had said to a black man, go eat fried chicken and have children that you won't support? It's the same damn thing! Racist generalizations, it's not cool and very hateful.

  59. Glen says – reply to this


    59

    uh yeah I am gay and no it was not homophobic, he was telling him to stop being a bitch - and stfu. Who cares if KOL said no to Glee, apparenlty he is self important in his own mind. Could he not pick like 100 other shit songs they can autotune to inspire glee kids? I mean if he wants to be responsible how about some "real" singing where 9 kids do not sound like a 40 piece chorus and all are in tune…of I have to look at Gwenth Paltrow be "cool" (barf). I wrote a song about a turd, Ryan can have that.



  60. 60

    He isn't making fun of Ryan Murphy for being "gay", he's making fun of him for acting like a little girl. Although I love glee, Ryan Murphey is taking this way out of proportion and acting like a baby.



  61. 61

    Perez you make me laugh, you get so upset about the littlest things when it comes to the gays. Don't get me wrong, I support the gays 100%, but you take things so fucking seriously. Nathan simply responded to Ryan Murphy calling them self-centered assholes and telling them "Fuck you, Kings of Leon". And all I got out of that tweet was Nathan calling Ryan Murphy a girl, nothing in that tweet was being homophobic. Get a fucking life perez.



  62. 62

    Re: MattRyanForever – Pretty positive Prerez made an entirely separate post about this comment. Epic fail on your part my friend.



  63. 63

    Re: HateMachine – right on!



  64. 64

    Ryan needs a time out for his nasty mouth. That bitch should be the one asking for Nathan's apology and not the other way around. Telling someone to fuck off is far more offensive then telling a gay to put on a bra. Ryan's an asshole and so are you bitch.



  65. 65

    KOL sucks anyways. fuck em' their 15 minutes is almost up



  66. 66

    ugh I dislike them both(KOL and RM).



  67. 67

    That wasn't homophobic, he was saying he's acting like a girl. I'm female, and I'm not remotely offended. LET IT GO.



  68. 68

    Not homophobic, but he probably got a very stereotypical view of gays.
    I understand why they don't want their music trashed by the Glee people.



  69. 69

    While both are in the wrong for their behavior, Nathan's comments were, in fact, homophobic. And his apology can't even be called that. He is sorry his comments were "misconstrued"? Sorry buddy, but his comments were taken at face value for what there were, words of hate.



  70. 70

    I love gay people!! I have nothing against with them. I approve gay marriage but I don't think this is homophobic.Ryan is being a cry baby. What kind of attention do you want. Please stop using those unfortunate kids who commit suicide for this issue.



  71. 71

    How was that Homophobic??? I'm so sick of your bullshit



  72. 72

    being rude to one individula does not make you a homophobe.
    thats like saying that a girl is a 'slut' and being sexist to the whole female community.

    there is a line between homophobia and dislike of one individual which you very much ignore.

    i cant stand you and i think you are an abomination to the gay community and have no idea how to stand up for gay rights and get it excepted into everyones day to day normal life. when you treat gay people differently to straight people.

    my best friend is gay so im really not homophobic.



  73. 73

    Ryan Murphy should stop getting so upset that someone said no to using a song, then this would not happen. He pissed them off, duh. Ryan, not everyone HAS to give you license to use their f-ing songs. get over yourself and your show



  74. 74

    Re: justagirl1101
    You are exacly the problem. You will find something wrong with anything said. You too are acting like a bitch. Get a life.



  75. 75

    KOL….fail…



  76. 76

    Re: mellyanne – thank you for making your comment to perez directly, and not gays in general like some others have! i agree that perez is overly sensitive, and he certainly does not represent gays as a whole like some other posters seem to think!



  77. 77

    Way to go Perez. You and Ryan keep creating and perpetuating the hate. Ryan had no business bullying KOL with his F-ing rants. Ryan gets to choose which musical guests can perform on Glee but KOL has no right to decide whether they wish to showcase their music on Glee??? KOL with their comment was just implying that Ryan was behaving liking a whiny little bi**ch! Get over it!



  78. 78

    I didn't find his tweet homophobic. It was a bit sexist thou like someone else said. I'm more offended by the gay characters in glee, then by that comment. All gays don't like fashion, lady gaga, madonna but in glee they do, that's hell of a lot more offensive then that tweet. Ryan is just a whiny prick…



  79. 79

    "If that isn’t the most glaring example of homophobia, we don’t know what is. We’re appalled"

    and Perez- For someone who is trying to turn a new leaf and not write scathing gossip crapola, this is a very unfortunate comment. Most people after having read Nathan's comment have sensed that he was in fact calling Ryan a "bitch". Take a step back and realize that you obviously in this case DO NOT KNOW what homophobia is. Quit being so transparent.



  80. 80

    OK Perez you need to relax…seriously is this what it has come too!! No one can say anything smart-assed to anyone who is gay. Maybe Ryan needs to get over himself and realize that yes shocking there are some bands THANK GOD who have not been sucked into the Glee Vortex. Why is it so unrealistic that someone doesn't want o be on their show. Kudos to KOL for not wanting to be on Glee & saying it! So when is Ryan going to tweet his apology for encouraging 7yr olds to say Fuck…oh right I forgot thats okay..get over yourself. I took NAthan's tweet as calling Ryan a whiney bitch actually & I have to agree :)



  81. 81

    It's a full time job for you being outrgaed and horrified by homophobic remarks lately isnt it? My guess is the Kings Of Leon dick was highlighting the hyperventilating reaction of your people to almost anything that they dont get their way. Hey, your post that Im commenting to totally makes my point! I think the haters shpould start to seperate Gays from Queers, the latter you, the former, normal people who just want to get on with their life without insisting that their quest for equality menas they get extra special treatment!



  82. 82

    I'm starting to think Ryan is re-hashing old news so that he can get enough publicity to force them on the show..lets hope KOL doesn't fall for it. He loves their music…Nahhhh he loves making money off of other ppls music.



  83. 83

    what? Nathan's comments were so NOT homophobic. He was referencing to Ryan whining like a little girl about something that happened a flipping year ago! I like one KOL song and don't watch Glee but this is pissing me the hell off! Ryan should stfu



  84. 84

    Re: Randy Christian Lee – Who the fuck cares. I can say the same thing if someone tells me to man up. I could say "do you really thing he would have said that if I were gay?" Which i gues, by your logic, means they are heterophobic for that reason. Yeah, makes sense.



  85. 85

    I agree with everyone who is saying that this is more sexist, than homophobic. NEITHER ONE IS OKAY, but I think Nathan was slamming Ryan more for acting "like a girl". On the other hand, considering the circumstances, I can see how Ryan AND Perez could have misconstrued this statement as homophobic. I don't think that Nathan would have used these exact words if Ryan was straight. But that's just my opinion.

    Also, to all those people complaining that Perez only reported Ryan's side of the story, look a few posts before this one and you'll see that Perez posted Ryan's entire first post to Kings of Leon. Ryan was not completely right in the way he acted, but I don't blame him for getting defensive.



  86. 86

    Perez, are you a troll? Honestly, half the time what you find offensive, I find "I may not like what he said, but I defend his right to say it". People keep forgetting that freedom of speech right thing (you know, that right that allows you to post this kinda shit).



  87. 87

    Nathan sounds like he's calling Ryan a little bitch, nothing to do with any homophobic intentions :/
    FYI: Ryan is one for sayin F U to KOL just bc they didnt want to work with Glee.



  88. 88

    Re: Dee Wood – Your a fucking moron. Fried chick and kids out of wedlock are stereotypes. I have never heard of a bra being a stereotype for a gay man. You make no sense at all, at least say something relevant instead of showing are fucking clueless you are.



  89. 89

    That was not a homophobic comment!! All he was telling him was to quit acting like a girl….what does anything he says have to do with gays? It's really sad that every comment made these days has to be taken so seriously. Lighten up please :)



  90. 90

    I think a smarter reply would've been: "I'm sorry Mr. Murphy, I didn't realize that our band had an obligation with your TV show, just because it's popular."

    Seriously? Why should KOL want to be on Glee? Because it's a hit show? Who does Ryan Murphy thinks he is?



  91. 91

    KOL are so fucking irrelevant…they need to get over themselves. They should go back to playing concerts for 20 people when no one gave a shit about them. So sick of musicians trying to play the victim boo-hoo poor me I'm rich and famous, but now soccer moms and glee kids wanna sing our songs.



  92. 92

    Re: HeatherIsOnFire – You too are another fucking idiot. KOL have been around for years, they toured with U2 and have multiple albums. Unlike Gentleman GaGa for example. Do your research, 15 minutes, I don't think so. Just cuz the gay community doesn't like it does not mean it hasn't existed for longer than the perverbial 15 minutes.



  93. 93

    Once again the gays turn nothing into "homophobia"!! The catch phrase to throw at anyone who doesn't agree with your agenda. Last I checked, making a comment like that, which was actually well deserved since this prick uses the 'F' word right out of the gate because this group (who has every right to do so) turned him down to use their music and goes on about "doing it for the children", didn't mean anything about gays. It means he was acting like a whiny little bitch, which he certainly was.



  94. 94

    I don't care in the least about any of these people. Kings of Leon is mediocre and boring, and Glee is total ^%&*. Moral of the story is, if your friend successfully produces something completely retarded, remind them of the fact. Instead, we have these two adults that are drawing attention to themselves by acting like children, throwing names at one another… (sigh)…



  95. 95

    EVERYONE is a homophobe according to you Perez.



  96. 96

    And then you have Perez posting articles about the transvestite WOman every other day which pushes a very negative stereotype to the general population about gay/lesbian and transgender issues.



  97. 97

    I read Nathan's apology. Once a man has stood up and apologised, shouldn't that be the end of the issue?



  98. 98

    I don't believe this is a homophobic slur. I think he's calling Murphy a girl which makes it a sexist slur, but a slur non the less.



  99. 99

    In all fairness, Ryan was the one that started it, telling KOL to go fuck themselves because they don't want their music on Glee. Not everyone likes that show, and he DOES need to get the fuck over it.



  100. 100

    Re: justagirl1101 – I'm a girl. I don't care. He is being a little baby girl.
