Gay Sportswriter Thanks Brendon Ayanbadejo

Filed under: Gay Gay GayFootballSuper Bowl

Ever since he won the Super Bowl, Brendon Ayanbadejo's soap box has gotten a lot taller.

Now he can reach more people and spread his most important message: Homophobia in pro sports needs to stop.

He is a straight man, who all on his own took up the fight for LGBT equality in sports.

Chuck Culpepper is a gay sportswriter who is a self-proclaimed "exotic creature" as an aforementioned "gay male sportswriter."

He was also lucky enough to be able to cover the Super Bowl and interview the players before the game.

While in the Ravens' locker room, he spotted a player that he didn't immediately recognize, but after learning who he was, had to go speak to him.

That player was Brendon Ayanbadejo.

Culpepper knew he wanted to talk to him, but didn't know how to handle it. He walked up to Brendon and said the whole interview went a little like this:

Super Bowl Champ Brendon Ayanbadejo Wants To End Homophobia In Pro Sports!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballSuper Bowl

brendon ayanbadejo

Brendon Ayanbadejo is a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens and one of the most outspoken gay rights activists in professional sports.

First, let us say congrats on winning the Super Bowl!!

Second, being a straight pro athlete and "coming out" as a supporter of gay rights must be hard to do.

But Brendon knows that coming out as openly gay would be even harder for a player due to the generally homophobic atmosphere that dominates pro sports.

Piers Morgan Being Deported After Fighting Gun Advocates?

Piers Morgan Gun Comment Deportation

Bye bye, Piers?

We’re not so sure it’ll happen, but some gun advocates are hoping to send Piers Morgan back over to England.

After an unfriendly argument about gun control in the U.S., Piers has upset gun advocates who now want him gone.

Hmm. You know what would be a better idea? Sending the guns away instead!

Hulk Hogan's Sex Tape War Sees Another Lost Battle! Womp Womp!

Filed under: Legal MattersHulk Hogan

hulk hogan sex tape lawsuit loss

Sorry, Hulk!

Looks like everyone and their nosy mama gets to see you boink your bff's ex for a little bit longer! At least!

After a judge heard Hulk Hogan's argument in court, he ruled against the bandana-wearing wrestler's preliminary motion to strip Gawker's rights to keep it online.

While this may not be the final say in this legal cage-match, it's definitely lowered the bets on Hulk.

Since the judge thinks there's really nothing left to protect of Hulk's privacy (the tape — and his peen — have been seen by basically everyone), he doesn't think pulling the tape now would do any good.

Still, Hulk remains hopeful… for $100M and the wiped-out memory of the planet. Yeah, good luck with that last part!

Lil' Wayne LOSES Lawsuit Over Qunicy Jones III Documentary!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersLil WayneHealth

Your Reaction?

It looks as though Lil' Wayne's recent HIGHlarious behavior during his deposition may have cost him his lawsuit against Quincy Jones III!

As we've reported, the rapper sued the son of Quincy Jones over his Weezy-centric documentary, Tha Carter, for using music from his album Tha Carter III without proper permission…and from what we hear, not being too pleased with the way in which he's portrayed!

However, as Wayne was unable to make the court date for the trial, as the day he was supposed to testify he was hospitalized after suffering seizure-like symptoms mid-flight! Therefore, all his lawyer had to show the jury was his aforementioned deposition…and we all know how THAT went!

But just in case you don't, dear lord, please watch (above)!

LOLz! AH-mazing!

But not TOO helpful in a court of law!

As a result

50 Cent Calls Redrum Sampling Lawsuit A Bunch Of Bull

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters50 Cent

50 Cent isn't denying the fact that he sampled a song called Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out by The Persuaders, but he doesn't think that he can be sued for it either.

The rapper is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit from a man named Robert Poindexter, who's accusing him of using the soul tune without permission to create Redrum, a track he handed out to fans for free online.

50 is denying any copyright infringement and doesn't even think Poindexter actually owns the rights to the song in the first place.

Mitt Romney Wants To End Hospital Visitation Rights For Same-Sex Couples

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack ObamaSad Sad

In 2010, Barack Obama signed an executive order that mandated any hospital receiving federal funding to recognize and respect same-sex relationships.

That means after years and years of gays and lesbians being denied one last meeting with their partner before dying or undergoing a life-threatening operation, the LGBT community finally got the visitation rights they deserved.

Although Mitt Romney hasn't been very clear about anything his stance on the issue over the last two decades, one of his top advisors made it pretty dang clear he would repeal any equality that Obama has instituted.

While clarifying his strong support for a federal ban on same-sex marriage, Bay Buchanan declared he would leave other LGBT issues up to the states and explained:
