BOO!!!! FOX News Yanks Longtime Contributor Off Air After He Comes Out In Support Of Equal Rights!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayPolitik

It seems that FOX News has one way of handling anyone who opposes their conservatism…cutting them off! How very close-minded!

ian mckellen joined xmen cast metaphor gay rights mutants bryan singer magneto

The world was delighted when X-Men starlet Ellen Page came out on Valentine's Day, but she wasn't the franchise's first openly gay cast member! Not even close!

Ian McKellen, a.k.a. present day Magneto, has been openly gay since 1988!

In the X-Men films, Ian's character fights on behalf of an unjustly disenfranchised group of "mutants." Well, that's no coincidence!

As it turns out, when director Bryan Singer approached the legendary actor and begged him to accept the role, he suggested that Ian view the mutants' plight as a metaphor for what the LGBT community endures in real life!

Kanye West Should Be Using His Influence For Causes Greater Than LV Boycotts, Says Comedian Katt Williams!!

Katt Williams would choose to boycott very different things if he had the same amount of influence as Kanye West!

Guess someone was Bound 2 point this out eventually!!

Comedian Katt Williams was recently briefed on Kanye West’s Louis Vuitton boycott, and then asked what he thought about it.

Aside from pulling out his own LV luggage and sounding confused as to why Yeezus would be mad at the fashion label, he had some intriguing insights to make!

He didn’t seem to have anything against the boycott, and didn’t doubt that Kanye had the influence to make a dent in their sales, but he did say:

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikWhoopi GoldbergAnn Coulter

Ann Coulter is at it again and by the law of cause and effect, that means Whoopi Goldberg is too.

The Caucasian conservative crusader appeared on The View (above) to discuss her newest book, Mugged, which is all about how liberals use race mongering "to promote causes that have nothing to do with blacks" and actually harm them in the process.

She tried to plead her case and insinuate that white people were afraid to convict "guilty black criminals" before the OJ Simpson case, but Whoopi got tired of sitting there scratching her head and shot back:
