Blake Shelton Called Jake Gyllenhaal Gay During ACMs

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooJake GyllenhaalLeann RimesSad SadTaylor Swift

Blake Shelton Wasn't Tasteful

Blake Shelton took a crack at hosting the other night at the ACMs.

If you ask us and some others, though, he overstepped a few boundaries with a few of his jokes. The frustrating part of it was that he WASN'T that bad as a host, which confuses us as to why he'd have to stoop down low with a few of his lines.

Other than the jab at LeAnn Rimes and the circumstances around her marriages, we're referring to Jake Gyllenhaal being called a gay man, all because he is no longer with Taylor Swift, and spinning it as if it would be a bad thing if it were true!

Here's the joke:

"Don't make jokes about Taylor Swift. If you make her mad, she'll write a song about you. She writes songs about guys who break up with her. Which I don't understand in the first place. She's beautiful, she's talented, she's sweet. What in the world was Jake Gyllenhaal thinking anyway?

Wait a minute, he was in Brokeback Mountain."

You're right, he could have said much more offensive things at the sake of the same joke, but we just think it's in bad taste regardless of severity.

We're a little disappointed, Blake. You did fine without that kind of stuff!

How do U feel he did?

    the only person who has a right to comment about this is jake. and im sure as a professional he will take this is good fun as it was intended.

    some times perez you make a mountain out of a mole hill. this is not offenssive, this is not over stepping, this is more about them backing taylor swift then anything else. you are right it could have been a lot worse and thats why they did it this way, tasteful and humorous.

    this is the problem with society we are overly sensitive. i agree equality for all and no racism and all that stuff.

    but sometimes just let ppl make it a joke and then let it be done
    sheeeshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Re: !hateperez – Yes it was a joke,and I enjoyed him….my question is this….if you hate Perez,why the hell do you go to his site????? I'll bet you are a very unhappy person that has no friends to debate issues with.I don't always agree with him,but I go to his site every day. What's wrong with you?



  3. 103

    Oh, come on Mario. Can there be such a thing as too sensitive? It was a fu(*ing joke. And funny too.



  4. 104

    I was a joke. Obviously. Get over it.

    this site rips LeAnn Rimes every chance they get since she came out with Eddie & you're gonna act like Blake Shelton delivering some jokes a writer wrote for him on her is some huge deal? & he didn't call Jake "GAY", he was making a joke, he didn't come out & actually call Jake "gay" & who ISN'T calling Jake gay? It's basically like Travolta & Cruise, almost everyone already knows but that doesn't mean they're gonna ever gonna stop pretending to be straight. Blake Shelton did not come out on stage & say "hello everyone, Jake Gyllenhaal is gay".



  6. 106

    This is the dumbest thing ever. Perez used to call Jake gay on here all the time plus tons of other actors. It's ok for a gay man to poke fun at a gay person but not a straight man? And he wasn't even making it about homosexuality being a bad thing, just about how awesome he thinks Taylor is and how a guy would have to be gay to not wanna be with her. Just his opinion and just a JOKE since Jake happened to play a gay man in probably the most popular movie featuring a gay relationship



  7. 107

    Come on!! That was funny. As far as I know, Jake wasn't offended, nor was anybody else. I haven't heard any bad reviews about any of his jokes or his hosting. If you've ever met Blake you know he doesn't "step lightly" and just speaks his mind/says what he wants.



  8. 108

    Re: jetson11 – How i took the joke was that, because he was in brokeback mountain (a movie centered around two gay men) He must be an idiot. NOT what you say about it meaning he must like guys. That is why i found it offensive. And i don't think that all people from the south are ignorant. Alot are though.



  9. 109

    Seriously? SERIOUSLY? This is making a mountain out of a mole hill. It was hardly even a gay joke. :/



  10. 110

    Re: J_Baby – Um, u mean PEREZ is getting a little ridiculous and full of himself? not all gay ppl are the same and i'm sick of every1 thinking that what Perez thinks and says is what ALL gays think and say… It's not… Perez needs to stfu and get out whatever stick is up his ass…



  11. 111

    He did an awesome job hosting, and NO, I don't think the joke went too far.



  12. 112

    Not his fault…he didn't write that crap. Blame the writers.



  13. 113

    you are always such a victim! He didn't say it was bad that he was gay or anything negative about the gay community! all he was saying it that taylor is so beautiful, smart and tallented that he must be into men if he isn't into her! You are reaching yet again.



  14. 114

    So making fun of straight people, like LeAnn, is ok but making fun of gay people is bad?



  15. 115

    Hey, Perez, you're GAY!



  16. 116

    Re: hoochpit – HAHA! WELL SAID!



  17. 117

    I am more offended he said Talor Swift was talented. How is this offensive to gays. As a female that has been in love w/ a couple of gay guys, it sux lol. But it happens. They do try you on once in awhile.



  18. 118

    Who are these Country people anyway? I've never seen this man before in my life. I couldn't care less what he says and neither should anyone else.



  19. 119

    I know that everyone calls you a hypocrite Mario but you take all the fun out of it by making it so easy.



  20. 120

    I don't think Blake Shelton is in a position to make gay jokes. I know where Kathy Griffin is coming from. If she made a gay joke and she does it all the time, it would just be lame or whatever. But we all know most country fans are part of the Conservative anti-gay movement, and he was appealing to their nasty side.

    I don't like what he did. It was a cheap shot.And no. It wasn't funny. He acted like there is something wrong with being gay and he called Jake Gyllenhaal a liar. JAke has said he is straight. Several times. Blake also didn't make Taylor Swift or Reese Witherspoon who dated Jake for three years, look very good. Brokeback Mountain jokes are stupid and Blake proved once again that Country=stupid. The movie came out sixyears ago. Get over it.

    Re: cami16 – LOLOL!



  22. 122

    For heaven sake Perez. It was funny. Lighten up



  23. 123

    How is this any different than what you do? Please go back and read your own comments and stories about JG. I'm pretty sure you've called every woman he's dated a beard.



  24. 124

    If a joke like this offends a few losers I think I almost automatically like it. LIGHTEN UP.

    125

    Mario, you are wrong on this one (as usual), it was a harmless joke that wasn't anti gay at all. In fact, I'm impressed that the CMAs actually did a tasteful and topical joke - good for them!



  26. 126

    pahleese, perez is a shitshow himself when it comes to talk about celebrities in the closet. so wtf is your problem?



  27. 127

    The joke is stupid implying that any man who doesn't want to be with that alien looking cun*t has to be gay.



  28. 128

    Re: hoochpit

    Someone needs to shit in your mouth.



  29. 129

    Everyone!!! Haven't you noticed that if you do not share the same opinions as the FABULOUS Perez, you are WRONG!

    Haa, what a damn joke. Perez, you are so ridiculous it's not even funny. Seriously, grow a sense of humor. You are one who preaches open-mindness correct? How do you expect people you are preaching to to be open-minded while you sit here bitching about a joke.

    Stick and stones Mr. Hilton. Put your big boy panties on and deal.



  30. 130

    Re: barb – hey,barb…again I have to say…why such a bitch to Perez? You can disagree without all the nasty ,nutty shit….just don't read his site….



  31. 131

    you are way too sensitive



  32. 132

    What a stupid cousin fucker! God, I hate inbreds, they make me ashamed to be white.



  33. 133

    Re: Barbarella-X – Ha! I so agree….smart lady…



  34. 134

    I honestly don't think that his jokes were a big deal. As a host its your job to be funny and honest. It's not his fault, its the writers fault. Honestly I don't think it was offensive at all. LeAnn made the choice to leave her husband and being in the public eye she knew people would talk and joke about her infidelity. And the Jake joke was funny and not the list bit homophobic.



  35. 135

    To the person that called Lee Ann Rimes a "home wrecking whore"…I am not a fan of hers, however why are you blaming her when the person she was having an affair with WAS MARRIED? Why do women get the blame when the guy clearly was at fault as well….with a wife AND kids….takes two to tango…stop blaming the women. Thank you.



  36. 136

    Re: Blibberblabber – The joke was not "centered around the point of view that being gay is a negative thing." He never said it was a negative thing. All he said was that it was probably the reason he broke up with a girl. Lighten up people!



  37. 137

    Re: La Garse – BAHAHAHA this just made my day.



  38. 138

    I think he did a great job as well, and i'm sure he didn't mean it as being gay was a bad thing. I for one laughed my ass off, he was a million times better on his first try then Chelsey Handler, she sucked hard



  39. 139

    He is a product of the Country worlds good ole boy mindset. You can fool yourself if you guys want to..but in country music being gay is not a good thing. There a lot of good ole boys who would love to murder some gays in celebration of their country roots. It is the truth and the truth hurts.



  40. 140

    Perez, you are going to get high blood pressure if you don't start taking jokes like these less seriously. This joke OBVIOUSLY wasn't a gay bashing joke. It was insinuating that the only reason Jake could break up with someone as amazing as Taylor was if he was gay. Not that being gay was bad. No one is going to take you seriously until you can start laughing at yourself, Perez.



  41. 141

    you are WAYYYYY to sensitive get over it!



  42. 142

    I love how you can make a blatantly offensive video and call it "satire", also claiming that you have a right to do it because you are a "double minority", and think people are being too sensitive. Yet, someone makes a harmless joke but because he's a white and straight, that's offensive?

    I've been visiting this site for years, but I can't take hypocritical stuff like this anymore.



  43. 143

    What alot of people dont know is that Blake was involved in the beating death of another teenager while he was in high school….this info is not known because of his age at the time..he is a monster.



  44. 144

    Some people need to get over themselves and their gay centric universe. It was a fucking joke. In you're world bitch everyone is gay, worships at the alter of Lady Caca and lacks a sense of humor. You must be one bitter bitch.



  45. 145

    SHUT THE FUCK UP MARIO! HE MADE A GOD DAMN JOKE! GET YOUR FUCKING HEAD OUT OF GAG-GAG'S ASS AND FUCKING HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR. STOP BEING A FUCKING GAY ASSHOLE



  46. 146

    Oh my god it was a JOKE. He also joked that he was handing out all his money for his wedding to Miranda. He made a joke about Reba being inducted into the Wax Museum Hall of Fame and cracked a joke about Leann Rimes too. I doubt you even WATCHED the ACMs. You probably heard someone talk about it and suddenly decided it was anti-gay. Jake WAS in Brokeback Mountain and he's said it himself he thinks it's funny that people thinks that makes him gay. Reba wasn't offended. He told Brad Paisley he thought his wife was jealous of his guitar because "if you play that thing any harder you'll get it pregnant." He said lots of jokes that night, as did Reba and ONE was about Brokeback Mountain so you get your high horse out. Grow up Perez.



  47. 147

    Re: Blibberblabber – He was saying he was an idiot for not like Taylor, who he and his fiance are friends with. Are you telling me you've never taken sides in a breakup? If you say you haven't you're a damn liar. He thinks highly of Taylor and thinks anyone who wouldn't want her is dumb and that's offensive? You may want to wrap yourself in some bubblewrap cause the world is gonna hurt you bad.



  48. 148

    Re: lemonbird – Wow. Really? "But we all know most country fans are part of the Conservative anti-gay movement, and he was appealing to their nasty side." Now that was offensive. You're an ass. So if we're gonna generalize based on pure IGNORANCE then we can say all gay men talk with a lisp, wear leotards and glitter and flounce? Or all Muslim people are terrorists. Or all black men abandon their kids, have 15 children by 14 different people and are ALL uneducated right? How is your judgement on country fans any different than someone making a gay joke? Ignorance is ignorance.



  49. 149

    Re: CeliacubeforumRe: Celiacubeforum – "What alot of people dont know is that Blake was involved in the beating death of another teenager" Really? State your source. That's a serious accusation to say about anyone.



  50. 150

    Re: Celiacubeforum – "country music being gay is not a good thing. There a lot of good ole boys who would love to murder some gays" The same could be said of rap. Stop generalizing an entire fanbase.



  51. 151

    Huh? Haven't you implied he is gay for years?



  52. 152

    The joke was unfunny, sure, but in no way discriminating.



  53. 153

    Now you're being way too sensitive. It was a joke, and it wasn't even a bad joke. I've heard far worse regarding gays. Lighten up.



  54. 154

    Guys keep dumping Taylor so one would have to suspect that she is either holding on to her virginity OR she doesn't translate as a girlfriend as opposed to a pop star. Sucks to be her.



  55. 155

    it was joke you dumb shit



  56. 156

    Taylor is the kind of girl a lot of gay guys like and many men are bisexual.



  57. 157

    Perez I think it's great that you fight for equal rights all the time and stand up for what you believe (even though most of this site is probably written by someone else) but he never called Jake Gyllenhal gay, he said that he was in Brokeback Mountain (which is true) and he never gave the impression that that was a negative thing. Stop being so sensitve. It's people like you that ruin humour. Laugh a little…



  58. 158

    Re: JennFrost – It is called sarcasm…to the extreme…



  59. 159

    The most offensive part is that he said Taylor Swift is talented…



  60. 160

    Perez, I agree with pretty much everything you say on here…but definitely not this. I do not think that comment was offensive to the gay community at all. He was just joking that Jake doesn't like Taylor because he likes guys, not girls. I did not feel like it was saying being gay was a bad thing. And I would agree that anything said about Rimes (missed it during the show), she brought upon herself. Blake and Reba did a fantastic job hosting, and the entire show was absolutely fantastic..loved every second of it. Every performance was phenomenal! Also don't appreciate the comments that say "well look at the target audience" and whatnot….helloooooo generalization and stupid stereotypes :)



  61. 161

    Re: Celiacubeforum – Where did you hear this?!!!! What is the story behind it- I really want to know.
    Perez needs to find out about this and report on it!



  62. 162

    Lighten Up!…It was funny. Don't take yourself so seriously. You're ridiculous. as hoochpit said Don't be so Fucking gay.



  63. 163

    it's a joke perez….get a sense of humor.;)



  64. 164

    Oh my gosh - you do DO realize that Blake Shelton DID NOT call Jake gay!!!! Do you not have any mind at all?!?! There are people called WRITERS for these shows … the hosts DO NOT make up the jokes … the WRITERS do! My lord! In fact … Blake didn't even use the word gay. What he said was "he was in that movie Brokeback Mountain" … was "gay" mentioned there? Nope! Geez .. I am sure glad I am not gay … I guess that means you lose all sense of humor.
