GLAAD Speaks Out Against Adam Carolla's Latest Homophobic Tirade

| Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

carolla-homophoa.jpg

Once again, Adam Carolla has made homophobic comments he can't take back. Shame.

On one of his recent podcasts, Adam decided it was time for him to lash out at the gay community again, veiling his dislike of homosexuals with his supposed "humor." He started off by telling LGBT to "shut up" about equality because apparently, the mission to grant equal rights to everyone is "ruining his life." He then insensitively added that the LGBT community should consider using a different acronym - his suggestion was "YUCK" - and when referring to transgender people, he stated: “When did we start giving a sh*t about these people?”

First of all, the only thing that is yuck around here is your blatant disregard for the feelings of others. Second of all, people with good hearts and open minds have always given a sh*t about other people who are constantly torn down by the ignorance of people like you. And lastly … actually, we're going to let GLAAD speak for us at this point. They've said it better in their statement against Adam better than we can:

"Given his history of anti-gay and racist comments, networks and advertisers should know what their money is supporting if they choose to hire Adam Carolla. The gross intolerance that he tries to pass off as comedy should not have a place on our airwaves."

We second that!

Who is he to pass that kind of hatred onto other people. We're disgusted, appalled … and he should be too.

    this guy is such a loser, I doubt anyone listens to anything he has to say anyway



  2. 2

    I love that straight people are ALLOWED to have freedom of speech just like everyone else.

    stop your whining Perez.



  3. 3

    You mean "WHY do we give a shit about these people!"



  4. 4

    How many times were u on adams Show MARIO?? seriously the guy inst really racist , just says jokes and such as that .



  5. 5

    I'm gay and will keep my mouth quiet about his weight, and has-been celebrity status.



  6. 6

    Gay people whine too much



  7. 7

    He is a comedian. What about bill maher constantly making fun of religions or kathy griffin making fun of just about everything. If gays are ever going to be equal they need to stop bitching about every fucking thing. Who the fuck cares about a comedian anyways.



  8. 8

    I listen to Adam Carolla a lot, and while his remarks taken by themselves always seem horribly offensive, you miss his point.

    He completely supports gay marriage and gay rights all the way, but he thinks that constantly worrying about how certain people feel at any given time is a waste of time and we should just treat them normally without making a huge deal out of it. This isn't limited to transgendered people, it's everyone across the board - straight people, white people, whoever.



  9. 9

    haha i love this guy. being gay, transgendered, lesbian is disgusting.

  10. @v@ says – reply to this

    This is funny. I lived in another country while this same constant and ceaseless pushing for equal rights for all for gays was going on. You know how it finally ended? Equal rights legislation was passed across the board. All was and is quiet and peaceful there now, and everybody's happy.



  11. 11

    Yet more whinning from the queens.



  12. 12

    What I really hate is that Perez is all about equal rights and freedom, well, people have the right to say whatever they want and Perez trashing everyone that doesnt like gay people makes him just like them, a hater. Some of us are not in favor and we should be respected also. If you want respect, learn to respect others too!



  13. 13

    If gays want respect, and equality stop being whiny bitches. Seriously comedians make jokes, sometimes they are offensive..if his style of comedy doesn't suit your tastes, don't fucking listen to him. Whining and crying isn't going to make people accept the lifestyle..



  14. 14

    I am so sick of people being such assholes about equal rights for LGBT! Get over it and quit being ignorant. Love is love and it shouldn't matter what race or gender is involved! Grrr makes me so angry! Perez, I am behind you 100% brother! Equality for all!!



  15. 15

    Adam Corolla has always been a chauvinistic asshole. He talks about everyone. He's never been funny and I still don't know why anyone is paying attention to him…



  16. 16

    This guy is NOT entertainment. Stop patronize him and he will go away for good! He's a NO BODY!



  17. 17

    I had no clue who this was other than a Toyota, but someone told me he is a failed would-be comedian. They tell me after his failed "career", he hands out on the fringes of the entertainment industry looking for a few crumbs from the management of comedy clubs and lounge lizard establishments. I'm sure this is just another measure of his lack of talent and whatever he says about anything is negligible at best.



  18. 18

    He is one unattractive guy whoever he is. Never heard of him. He should learn to keep his ugly mouth shut.



  19. 19

    You are a moron Mario…. You jump all over ADAM and call Michelle Bachman disgusting names because of their views on gays… I do understand it to a point, TO A POINT, but you anger gets overboard with some… Meanwhile, you think People like Kathy giffin, Joy Behar, etc. are the greatest people ever… and they and other 'comedians' rip into people too, their families, children, etc. and you cheer them on and on…. IT JUST MATTERS WHAT POLITICAL SIDE THEY ARE ON-FOR YOU! H.Y.P.O.C.R.I.T.E.

    'First of all, the only thing that is yuck around here is your blatant disregard for the feelings of others. Second of all, people with good hearts and open minds have always given a sh*t about other people who are constantly torn down by the ignorance of people like you.'

    Perez– maybe you should reread these words before YOU post something ignorant. You have no problem bullying others for their lifestyles or beliefs, but you are the first to call someone out when they disagree with your agenda. Take a look in the mirror.



  21. 21

    The only difference between Mario and Adam is that Mario has the luxury of being able to erase his words so that they make the masses happy (still failing). If he had to speak off the cuff as Adam does, then everyone would know that he is the same intolerant asshole that he has always been. Start up a new site for your politics.



  22. 22

    am I supposed to know who this ass-goblin is?



  23. 23

    Gay people are not whining they are simply trying to give a voice to their cause! If they sat back and didnt highlight the gross injustices they suffer at the hands of closed minded homophobes then we would NEVER see change. Perez is not against free speech, he just has a problem with homophobic comments and choices to address this distaste on HIS website. And of course I believe it's fine to use gay people as the pun in joke, but there is a line, just like there is for everything else in this world. For example if he was calling black people YUCK it would be considered weird and offensive not funny.

    Cry me a fuckin river, if you can dish it out you should beable to fucking take it…..



  25. 25

    we're ruining his life? his whole life is entertaining people for tons of money! we're ruining his life? what does he want from the public? besides millions of dollars. please.



  26. 26

    didn't you LGBT people ask for EQUALITY??? well, this is exactly what EQUALITY means: being equal to everyone, even on receiving awful, bigoted comments. Everyone has to deal with bullies, WHY THE HELL SHOULD YOU PEOPLE BE THE EXCEPTION TO THE RULE? deal with it and stop whining about it, Perez!



  27. 27

    Besides, Perez,everyone has the right to freedom of expression, even if the things people say are wrong, mean or disgusting. You can't make him shut up.



  28. 28

    Re: *truth*hurts* – the *truth* is you seem to be an asshole.



  29. 29

    Re: Nevereclipsed01 – boo hoo. Deal with the truth. You can't shut people up just because they don't agree with you. The universe doesn't revolve around you, you know???



  30. 30

    He is a COMEDIAN!! And it was not a homophobic rant! Do you ever research ANYTHING before making your ignorant comments and pointing your holier-than-thou finger at others? GLAAD can piss off too. If they weren't making a dime bitching and moaning about anyone who says anything that they disagree with, we would never hear from them again.



  31. 31

    Wow! I'm shocked that this misogynistic asshole said that! You're kidding!



  32. 32

    Re: *truth*hurts* – it must revolve around you then.. you aren't even gay and you whine about gay issues.. here of all places.. i'm gay so that's why i clicked on this post. you're just a busybody who uses the *character* to make yourself more smug.



  33. 33

    And just in general, I don't know any gay guys that created Bert and Ernie. I'm getting sick of it, the fact is these 'puppets' speak English and sleep in the same bedroom. Just because some group wanted them to marry doesn't mean they should be used to shame all LGBT people. This has been an annoying story for weeks now it has to end.



  34. 34

    Gays whine too much. They are a minority. They have no power. They preach for people to be open minded but try to force their CRAP on others..They are pretty much like Christians but more whiny and annoying. If you say "Sorry I don't believe in god" they will grill you and start debating even thou they are completely wrong.

    No one likes gays. You're lucky you're not eradicated.



  35. 35

    Being gay does not make you special. In what weird stupid fantasy world your living in where taking a dick in your ass makes you special is beyond me.

    Every race, religion, nationality gets made fun of. Being gay does not make you immune from trash talking. Deal with it.



  36. 36

    and who the fuck is he?



  37. 37

    Re: NookiesWA – whining about gays doesn't make someone special either.. it's not about being special it's about the fact that some of this crap is hurtful and draws our attention and our responses. and in the meantime we have to live our lives.



  38. 38

    Re: Nevereclipsed01 – The problem is..If someone says something negative about gays they do not "ask" they DEMAND that the person gets fired or fined. Cough Kobe cough..OR that airline pilot..His mic was ACCIDENTALLY left on. He was talking to his CO-Pilot a single other person..They were just having a conversation that they thought was private. But glaad calls for him to get fired and it was successful. LMAO that makes people hate gays even worse when they do crap like that.



  39. 39

    he's already apologized about his bigoted remarks. this has gotten so predictable and boring. has been, unfunny comedian goes on a anti lgbt rant disguised as a comedy routine, ends up looking like the bigoted fool they actually are and then says they're sorry. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.



  40. 40

    I have an idea for a new acronym for the "lgbt" community.. FTA.. FUCK THEM ALL… Thay choose to be this way, and they're just completely misguided……



  41. 41

    Re: Nevereclipsed01 – This is why America is doomed. Why does everyone think they should never have their feelings hurt, never be inconvenienced, and expect the world to bend to their will? Everyone has crap to deal with and it doesn't matter who or what you are. If you are hurt because of something Adam Carolla said on a podcast, then you are truly pathetic.



  42. 42

    LMAO!



  43. 43

    Re: NookiesWA – Kobe paid his fine and didn't complain. a very tiny amount of NBA fans are gay men and lesbians. and that fine represented a very small amount of his pay check… that pilot was a creep who cheats on his wife in every city he's fortunate enough to score in, and he left his mic on for several minutes, because he wasn't quick enough to know whether it was transmitting or not. so why don't you let him fly you somewhere. apparently flying is so easy, you can bitch about who you have sex with the whole time you do it, planes really just fly themselves anyway.



  44. 44

    Re: Teresa999 – i'm hurt by the responses because these people troll every gay issue looking for a fight. i think adam carolla is ridiculous and should be ashamed of the fact that between him and dr. drew, he's more annoying.



  45. 45

    Re: Nevereclipsed01 – The pilot's job is to fly. I don't care if he cheats on his wife, beats her, or hates blacks, gays, or even frigging whites. Your logic is funny. According to you, if you were to get your arm chopped off in a freak accident and had to go to the hospital and you found out your doctor hated gays, and cheats on his wife you would not let him operate on you?

    Funny thing is, gays preach tolerance. Theres tons of people that dislike gays but they tolerate them and are polite to them out of courtesy. But apparently you're not allowed to say something bad about a MINORITY without the fear of getting fired.

    Americans are becoming a bunch of fruity pansies LMAO. "AWW HE HURTED MY FEELINGS HE SHOULD GET FIRED" LOLOLOLOL..



  46. 46

    Umm, GLAAD? It's not "your airwaves." It's a freakin PODCAST, that people can choose NOT to download. Just like GLAAD has said that people are NOT ALLOWED to be offended by the homosexual lifestyle, wouldn't it be fair to say that you are NOT ALLOWED to be offended by the free speech of a comedian?

    So much for open-mindedness and tolerance. GLAAD: We want equal rights, and in order to do so, we'll take away the rights of others!

    Re: Nevereclipsed01 – Nice way to stereotype gays as not liking sports.



  48. 48

    You actually took Adam Carolla seriously ? A comedian … gimme a break !



  49. 49

    Re: NookiesWA – yeah i'm not sure how professional my doctor would be if he was anti gay. i suppose if i had one arm i'd be foreced(?) the funny thing is that while you say we preach tolerance, i've seen you post that 'nobody likes gays', like a million times, a million different ways. so what is it that you preach? i'm not checking this one again because it never ends.. clearly you people are homophobic because you find an ounce of something you can use to jump down our throats and bam, you're here.
