Heat on WWE for Vince McMahon’s Gay Comment on RAW

Posted by Marc Middleton in WWE News
Thursday, August 27th, 2009

– The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Degamation (GLADD) aren’t happy with ’s comments from RAW this past Monday. During the opening birthday segment for Vince, he commented that the masks that the Cirque de Soliel performers were wearing looked “pretty gay.”

Here’s part of a blog on the GLAAD website:

“McMahon here wasn’t implying the performers were gay, however, he used the term in a derogatory manner. It’s just another example of how people throw around the word “gay” derisively. This came from the leader of a $500 million-plus organization who holds a lot of power in what he says and what he does. The WWE’s website states, “WWE is committed to family-friendly, PG content across all of its platforms including television programming, pay-per-view, digital media and publishing.” However, off-handedly using “gay” in a derogatory manner is anything but family-friendly. WWE programming reaches 16 million viewers each week. McMahon needs to understand that the words he uses and how he uses them can greatly affect people’s lives.”

GLADD noted that they have reached out to Vince McMahon and the USA Network regarding the comment.

    These PC groups need to lighten up. It was a throw away comment with no malice behind it. Gladd needs to get a friggin grip.
