Jason Statham Apologizes For Allegedly Using Homophobic Slurs On Set

Though we have no concrete evidence the incident actually occurred, Jason Statham has issued a public apology for allegedly using homophobic slurs on the set of his 2015 action film Wild Card.

The Fast & the Furious star, 50, has been accused of a rant laden with homophobic language in the midst of an argument with Steve Casman while shooting at Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans.

To repeat, as of yet we have no proof this conversation actually happened, but  British tabloid The Sun claims to have acquired a transcript of the conversation:

"Stop acting like a f...... f..," Statham reportedly said. "I hate that f....... f.... s.... Talking, whispering... you guys [are] acting like a bunch of f...... f....... If you want to tell me something, don't wait 'til I do 15 f....... takes before you say something. Stop being a f...... f.. and be more assertive.”

Statham apologized May 16 in a statement issued on Facebook:

"I have never heard the recording and my multiple requests to hear the recording have been refused. I have no recollection of making any of these offensive comments. However, let me be clear, the terms referenced are highly offensive."

"If I said these words, it was wrong and I deeply apologize. Anyone who knows me knows it doesn’t reflect how I feel about the LGBTQ community. While I cannot fix what was said in the past, I can learn from it and do better in the future.”

It’s worth noting that releasing the alleged audio could come with consequences. Under Louisiana’s Electronic Surveillance Act, recording a conversation without someone’s permission is strictly against the law. According to The New York Post, Statham’s legal team has implied legal action would be taken if such a tape were released.

Boxer Adrien Broner States "Going At It Is Gay," Also Has Thoughts On Mexicans

 

As of his post-fight interview last night after a match, people seem to have more of a problem with Adrien "The Problem" Broner than they normally do. The outspoken boxer's shtick involves telling it like it is (for his fake name isn't "The Problem") but even though boxing fans are used to Broner's antics, he done and did it by giving his unfiltered thoughts on Mexicans attending his match as well as by using the word "gay" to reference something negative. So 1995.

Broner was disappointed that his Sunday night fight with Jessie Vargas was called as a draw, and even though his fists were down after the fight, he weaponized words with:

Look at his face. It look like I beat him with what they beat Martin Luther King with. We ain't go at it. Going at it is gay. 

Oh I forgot, he mentions Martin Luther King. He adds his thoughts on the cultural tapestry of Mexican heritage:

It’s hella Mexicans and shit in here. Everybody keep booing me and shit. They want rice and chicken. I want some motherfuckers that want some Coney’s around me.

 

 

It should be noted that Vargas is Mexican. Broner's comments have divided Twitter, with some understandably claiming that his words don't belong in the year 2018, and others noting that this is simply The Problem staying on-brand and cracking wise. Do you think Broner needs to find a new job as a standup comedian, or should he not be excused from his derogatory comments? Let us know.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Theta Tau Fraternity Expelled Over Racist, Homophobic, Sexist And Everything In Between Video

 

Pretty much every negative stereotype of fraternity members can be seen playing out in horrific detail in a viral video of a skit performed by members of Syracuse University's Theta Tau fraternity. The video is so egregiously offensive that, after less than a week's worth of deliberation, the university has permanently banned Theta Tau from campus. Not surprisingly, Chancellor Kent Syverud condemned the video as "racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, ableist and sexist."

Among the many quotable gems included in the skit, members can be heard pledging the oath:

I solemnly swear to have hatred in my heart for n***ers, sp*cs and most importantly the f**kin’ k*kes.

And they don't leave out the gays, also stating:

...Get together and [talk] about their significant others while drinking different wines and talking in gay girly accents.

The chapter claims in an official statement that the skit was intended to be satirical. Supposedly members were deriding a Republican pledge for his conservative views, and the video is meant to expand our minds, and dare I say, our hearts:

It was a satirical sketch of an uneducated, racist, homophobic, misogynist, sexist, ableist and intolerant person. The young man playing the part of this character nor the young man being roasted do not hold any of the horrible views espoused as a part of that sketch.

The video was originally posted to a secret Facebook page only intended to be seen by members of Theta Tau, so its designation as a tool for expanded, liberal thinking kind of hits a roadblock right there. The school administration - not to mention outraged students - aren't buying the fraternity's response, and this somber video from the school details the extent to which the members could be prosecuted:

 

The video itself is NSFEyeballs, and may offend some viewers. You can see it HERE. Proceed with caution...
