Serves him right!

As we previously reported, The Daily Beast seriously crossed a line last week when it published a report on sexual activity at the 2016 Summer Olympics, effectively outing a number of gay athletes in the process.

While Nico Hines didn't use any names in his story on Grindr usage in Rio de Janeiro's Olympic Village, the straight journalist did provide sports and nations for many closeted competitors… including countries that lack gay rights!

The Daily Beast initially responded to readers' complaints by simply removing any identifying information from the dating app article before eventually taking it down — but it turns out that wasn't good enough for the International Olympic Committee!

In fact, the IOC actually spoke out against the "simply unacceptable" homophobic report in an emailed statement to OutSports on Sunday, suggesting that Nico has been removed from the Games entirely, saying:

Straight Journalist Uses Grindr To Out Gay Olympic Athletes In Rio — Subjecting Them To Life-Threatening Consequences

no title

Who could possibly think this was a good idea?!

While the 2016 Summer Olympic games have already had their fair share of controversy in the first week, none of the scandals have really had potentially deadly repercussions… until now, that is.

That's because a reporter for The Daily Beast decided it would be a good idea to download Grindr and write a story about all the people who contacted him on the dating app in the Olympic Village on Wednesday.

Oh yeah… and the journalist, Nico Hines, just so happens to be straight!

Apparently, the website — which claims to love confronting "bullies, bigots, and hypocrites" — didn't see the harm in listing closeted LGBT athletes' chosen sports and corresponding countries, including one nation that is heavily anti-gay!

What's worse is that Editor-in-Chief John Avlon actually addressed readers' concerns by removing the names of countries after the fact… but decided to keep the majority of the post intact.

Luckily, out celebs like Gus Kenworthy, Tyler Oakley, and other individuals with common sense condemned the homophobic piece, saying:

American Apparel Plus-Size Model Winner Dramz!

Filed under: ModelsAmerican Apparel

The voters have spoken and crowned American Apparel's first plus-size model! Unfortunately, the winner was stripped of her title almost immediately!

Here's why:

A writer at the Daily Beast decided to have fun with the model search by submitting ridiculous pictures of herself as a joke. Nancy Upton ended up winning, but AA decided they won't be awarding her the grand price.

American Apparel's creative directive Iris Alonso wrote in a long-winded open letter:

"Oh — and regarding winning the contest, while you were clearly the popular choice, we have decided to award the prizes to other contestants that we feel truly exemplify the idea of beauty inside and out, and whom we will be proud to have representing our company."

Ouch.

What do U think of AA's decision???

Kevin Spacey Talks About His Sexuality…Sort Of

Filed under: Gay Gay GayKevin SpaceyLGBT

kevin spacey talks about his sexuality sort of

Innerested in hearing about Kevin Spacey's sexuality?

During an interview with Kevin Sessums for the Daily Beast, Spacey SORT OF opens up about his sexuality.

Here are some highlights of the conversation from Kevin…

Spacey on why he hasn't publicly claimed himself as a gay man:

Look, I might have lived in England for the last several years but I'm still an American citizen and I have not given up my right to privacy.

More on why his sexuality is a private matter for him:

…People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone's reasons in the same box. It's just a line I've never crossed and never will.

Spacey on why he doesn't feel he's living a lie by not announcing his sexuality publicly:

I don't live a lie. You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to.

And here's Kevin on why he feels that sexuality IS an important issue and should be discussed:

Look, I think finally this is a very important issue to be discussed. I do. Mainly because of how sad it is that young people in this country—and even around the world where they don't have the freedoms and rights we do—are being subjected to the kinds of abuse they are being subjected to. That's what is shameful.

We certainly agree that it's an important issue that needs to be discussed. Other than that, we agree that it's Kevin's decision as to whether or not he wants to publicly announce his sexuality.

Admittedly, we think it'd be wonderful if he embraced his sexuality publicly, so that we'd have another open, celebrity icon for gay youth to look up to, but let's be honest…he's made it pretty clear what his sexuality is.

Thoughts???

New Clue Arises In Ronni Chasen Murder Case

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad Sad

Looks like some new information has come to light that COULD help out with the strange, sad case surrounding the death of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen.

According to an email sent to The Daily Beast, a gunman threatened another woman only a few days before Ronni Chasen's murder, in the same neighborhood and under similar circumstances.

Here's what the email had to say:

“Hi ladies, something that I wanted to warn you about in our hood…Over the weekend, a neighbor told me that last week she was driving down Benedict Cyn and an African American guy with a shirt tied on his head—gang garb—was driving crazy behind her, cutting off drivers, then pulled up next to her at the Tower [Road] stop light and, with window rolled down, smiled at her while he pointed a gun at her. She ignored him and drove on. When they reached the Will Rogers Park, just after Sunset, he did a u-turn at high speed into oncoming traffic.

Not only that, but then ten days after Chasen's murder, another man was nearly killed during a murder attempt, which was nearly identical to the circumstances surrounding the Ronni Chasen's death.

My neighbor wanted me to know this because her friend had told her that there has been a string of shootings and car jackings happening within the last 2 months in the vicinity between Coldwater and Benedict.”

This is scary! We really hope investigators are able to figure this one out sooner than later.

Do U have any thoughts? Do U think any of this new information will prove useful?
