Adam Carolla Wants Gays To "Shut The F*ck Up"

Comedian Adam Carolla has had a love/hate relationship with the gay community over the years. His new interview with Salon will likely push the relationship further to one side than the other. 

My feeling about the gay community — first off, you can’t live in Hollywood and get along in this business and be in theater companies and improv companies and have issues with gay people... If you can’t work with gay people, you’re gonna have a difficult time in Hollywood. There’s plenty of gay people and they’re in positions above you. You’re not going to get your movie directed. I don’t have a problem with it — they’ve just turned into a mafia and demanding everyone apologize for every joke and retract every statement.


It’s turned into something that’s bigger than it is. I’ve lived in this town my whole life and never seen it like this. There’s been comedians telling jokes but no overt gay-bashing crimes. I don’t even know who’s gay and who’s not gay nine times out of 10 — why do you even need to know? Your skin color and gender one can see, if one wanted to discriminate. In terms of sexual proclivities, I don’t know what someone’s into! You could work with someone who’s into kids — how would you know? I don’t know and I don’t care. In the book, what I say about the gay community is that someone sent me “the top 10 reasons gays should marry.” One: They’re American. Two: They pay taxes. Three through five: So they can shut the f--k up.

So, Adam Carolla wants gays to shut up so he can get back to slinging mediocre punchlines about butt sex and so "masculine" comedy can return to the anti-gay minstrel shows of yesteryear. What do you think of Adam's rant?


Odd, how these adolescent right-wing guys seem to troll gay sites so much, and with commentary showing a stunted emotional growth...They get on these sites to stir up something or throw tantrums about how they are not getting to hog the spotlight anymore (which -if you read their comments , that is basically what is going on) ..who is the whiny bitches and drama queens again?


Thank you KevDobbins, for speaking TRUTH!

The whole gay issue was somewhat interesting for a minute, especially to do with celebs, but as with all other previous issues, this issue has run its course.

Everyone is sick and bored with this gay issue, and ready for the next, fresh drama of the minute.

The gays can not STAND this, as they thrive on drama and the attention.

Well said Charlie! Do you think once every state has passed gay marriage they'll finally shut up about it already? Or are they going to find something else to whine about? Enough already! 

And if they really DO want equal rights then go...get on with your lives. Get married, have families, have stress, divorce etc. Welcome to our world! 

I agree with you mike ryan i am so over the drama gay people want to put out there i always thought constitutional right for gay people was a good thing and if it is i just ask all the other states that have not pass gay marriage please do it so they will shut up and lets hope it will make them happy i know these groups speak for all gay people well i hate to tell them they don't speak for me  and i am as gay as the next but tell then ass jokes and queer jokes and i wish these group will shut up

Why are you gay dudes so afraid of breasts and vaginas?

Breasts are for babies. 

Vaginas menstruate...

Plus, some women are mean...and melodramatic...

If it wasn't for a wouldn't be here stupid..What do you think happens out your rear end dummy..that's where you poop..and all your waste goes..that's way worse than a bloody vagina..also you have breast talk about women being bitchy..there's nothing worse than one of you drama queens bitching

15 minutes of fame is up. Gay mafia has your number.

Miss OctaviaRose, the "bend over" comment was a joke. I'm in total agreement with Mike! And you're right, how many wieners does one man need, besides their own? I guess most of these gay guys have never been with a woman. Or maybe rejected by women? It's a mystery to me.

sorry but that comment is very stupid you sound like a drama queen yourself i have been married and been with a few other woman but i never liked it. they either stunk like fish or tasted like a floral banquet and sometimes like vinegar  from douching but we are born this way woman are beautiful as long as they have close on so please dont sound stupid

Your the Drama Queer..hmm I mean Queen..if you read all the words that describe you..then you would know what everybody. But gays think about you..Queer..Queen..Gay birds..

You think your ass doesn't stink that your sticking your weiner in..oh yes it does..Just because you can't get your face around there to smell it....I would lots rather smell a coutchie than an ass..also penis stink too...If that's all you are is a sniffer..then you need to sniff it all..a woman smells muck better than a's a good thing there are real men out there and not you bunch of poop smelling..penis sniffing weirdos..or you wouldn't be here and neither would anyone else

cloths on even

Mike Ryan, that is the most accurate comment I have ever read on this blog. Now bend over!

Why are you so fascinated with your private already have one so what's the big deal..What you just said to Mike was an example of your whinny baby attitude...somebody picked on me..wah wah ..nobody wants your nasty thing stuck in them... just because you think it's so hot to do that doesn't mean other people do...most people like it the good old fashioned way..Like God intended


Horse-hockie, idiot !

I see you've progressed from obsessing about gays to obsessing about our asses.

nobody is abcessing about your asses only you..that's just the truth..nobody wants to see any part if you just the other gays want to straight person wants to see you people make out ..its disgusting to us..yuck...get over yourselves

Adam Corolla's career is not in the toilet. He has worked constantly for years. If not in stand-up, he's always got his voice-over work bringing in the money. He has worked steadily, which is more than I can say for a lot of comedians. Leave him alone!

I have seen plenty of stand-up comedians. How come it's ok for gay comedians to make fun of gays and not for straight comedians to do the same? Same thing with black comedians. I will never be able to figure that out. Just like with everything else, if it offends YOU, change the channel (that's what the remote control is for!) and/or don't pay money to go see their live show, movie, etc. We ALL have choices! Boycotting Adam Corolla or any other celebrity is not going to change what's in their hearts. But they have the right, just like the rest of us, to make a living. A lot of celebs nowadays are forced by GLADD or NAACP to give a formal apology for what they have said. It's not sincere, it's not what's in their heart. It's forced. I'd rather have NO apology, (from anyone for that matter) than a disingenuous one!

Dude's career is in the toilet. He is starving for attention. I feel for him. LMAO! I hope that bitch starves.

It's THIS generation of gay men that are wussss and pussies and whiny babies. The last generations of gays were strong. They paved the way for the rights of the gays of this generation who act so entitled. Hopefully the next generation of gay men will be embarrassed by this generation of ninnies and strong and confident, and not have to whine and cry constantly. They act like a bunch of children being bullied on the playground!

The author of this article needs to learn to understand what he has read.  The article he quotes says, " someone sent me a list of the top ten reasons gays should get married. "  Mr. Carolla has a good case for libel.

Never heard of this Adam guy. Not interested either.

All gays will be burnt in hell.

I noticed it's all gay men that were upset by this artical not gay women..Gay men are just a bunch of whinny little wanna be pussys..your just a bunch of babies...wah wah ..some body said fag...wah wah ..somebody made fun of us wah wah ..Gay women are more ballsy and tough than you whinny babies are..wah wah

The gays are running and ruining the world. It's turning into Sodom & Gomorrah! God help us! Adam keep on being funny, don't back down!


And you gays wonder why you have a reputation of being wusses, sissys, etc. SHEESH!

I totally agree..enough is enough..I have a new word for you straightaphobia.. meaning..hatred of straight's happening ..even with the straight people

That would be heterophobia, idiot.

It was a joke idiot..of course you bunch of whinny babies can't take a joke....IDIOT

This article jumps to a ridiculous conclusion.

The writing is lazy and lacks not only sense but reason too.

Jonathon Higbee missed the mark with this vapid piece of click-bait.

Is it really unclear what is Carolla's point?

Russell Brand, Jimmy Fallon, Dave Chappelle, Whoopi, Ellen, Actually MOST of the current comedians do not think hate is something to joke about. And those that once did, decades ago when hate was fuel for jokes, have changed their tunes. Adam is not a successful comedian. He got rich making fun of people with sex problems on a radio show. Talk about hate. People cant stand him, or anyone who enjoys making a living off of the pain of others. Someone else trying to stay relevant. When will they learn. Hate gets you nowhere.

I'd like to know his secret on how to survive as a comedian for so many years while being about as entertaining as dryer lint.

He has a whiny voice!

He's a comedic polesmoker for sure. Choke on a dick dude and give us a laugh.

I'd like to shut him the fuck up!  

Who is he not that I really care considering he is insignificant and obviously no longer relevant.

Everyone is fair game with comedians. Black, white, gay, Jews, men, women, etc. People just need to stop being so sensitive! Grow some balls!

Spoken like a true pussy. Where are YOUR balls Anonymous? Little bitch can't even use your name

You haven't got the balls to publish your name.

Get a life, loser

I like how you say grow some balls, yet you remain ANONYMOUS....maybe you should take your own advise.

I think straight people think it's ok to make jokes or fun of gay people, but its not ok to make jokes of black people.
Both or niether !

Can we also say to Adam Carolla - Shut the Fu"k Up - He is irrelevant and he is only using the gays so that he can get press and endear himself to the Right Wing.

Did you know that ALL bottoms ARE subjugated? That is their choice in life. And that is what they feel like they deserve in life. A psychological study has been done on this as proof.

What study? Please inform us. I am verse and never once felt subjugated or oppressive. Your inability to understand sexuality is telling. 

You haven't met many of the bottoms I know! You know next to nothing about gay relationships. 

EVERYONE is forced to be so Politically Correct all arenas of life. We wouldn't have comedians if they didn't observe true life in the world. It has always been that way, and always will be. I believe that comedians should be able to say whatever they want. You don't have to spend money at their shows. A few years ago Michael Richards went on a rant about black people on pitch forks. A few years after that Joan Rivers made jokes about the holocaust. Did it hurt their careers? Heck no, they both have TV shows. They give up an insincere apology. And all is well in their world. It's just the way it is.

Gay people did not get their relationships legalized by shutting the fuck up.  Only 11 years ago gays were still being thrown in jail in this country for being gay.  Gay people did not win the right to marry in all the countries and states we have to date by shutting the fuck up.  But you know who DOES need to shut the fuck up? Adam Carolla, that's who!  Why does he need to say things like this?  What is the point?  What purpose does it serve?  Who's life is being made better by his comments? No one, because these are not constructive comments, nor is the constant character assassination from NOM.  Anti-gay critics are the people who should just shut the fuck up!  You want this problem to go away?  Then STOP MAKING IT A PROBLEM BY CONTINUING TO FIGHT TO KEEP GAY PEOPLE SUBJUGATED!!!

Hes upset mabe because he got turned down by a superior whos got clout and who happened to be gay! He should give up entertaining two reasons 1-not funny! 2- he happens to be a eye sore! .

We aren't gonna shut the fuck up just because we can get married. It was wrong to deny us that in the first place. As for expecting you to be nice to us, hey, be a jerk if you want, but don't expect us to put up with it silently.

Just substitute "Jews" for "gays" in Adam Carolla's little rant, and it's immediately clear how obnoxious his words are.  I'd love to see what would happen to Carolla's career in the entertainment industry (actually, does he still have a career?) if he announced that Jews have turned into a mafia and should just shut the fuck up.

Exactly!  But hey, since this is about the "gays" no big deal.  F*ck you Adam Carolla!

I agree 100% Tom. I've been saying for quite a while that we are really getting out of hand with this constant need to be "outraged" over everything. It is really doing us a disservice. One day in the near future when we realy need overwhelming support from the straight community, we're not going to get it because everyone is sick of us being in every single headline. We really are turning into a whiny "Sarah Palin"-esque militia of sorts. Calm down everybody. We're winning. Don't oversaturate everything.

I see his point, but at the same time, until there are no equal rights it's going to be like that for a while. I know is wrong comparing with the people of different colours, but comparing it I wouldn't shut up until we have the same rights and the jokes stopped being offensive

I'm sure this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I understand what he's saying.  It's almost as if we've become so entitled that any tiny little thing will set off a chorus of people.

The bigger, consequential issues I understand making an issue over, but bitching about every little thing is only turning our allies against us.  I've seen this trend on sites like reddit, where it's a clearly liberal, pro-gay crowd, voicing more and more opposition when we are constantly complaining about everything.

A good example is on this blog the post about Tyler the creator on the word faggot in lyrics has brought on a bunch of nasty comments using the n word.  See  That's not helping us at all.  In fact, it's disgusting.
