Ja Rule caused a queer controversy when he blamed gay-friendly television for America’s problems.
Speaking with Complex, the anti-homo musician insisted Congress should focus on MTV’s homosexual “promotion,” rather than rap lyrics. He went on: “Dating shows thatâ€™s showing two guys or two girls in mid-afternoon… If thatâ€™s not fucking up America, I donâ€™t know what is.”
In response to the scandalously nonsensical statement, GLAAD issued one of their own…

No fair-minded person can look at Ja Ruleâ€™s interview with Complex Magazine and believe for one second that his children could be more harmed by what they might see on television than by the vulgarity and prejudice that comes out of their fatherâ€™s mouth. Now that media have seen Ja Ruleâ€™s intolerance unmasked by his own words, they have a responsibility not to provide in the future a platform for his ugly, vulgar displays of prejudice.
We wonder what this will do – if anything – to the sales of the ridiculous rapper’s new album, which comes out in November. Wait, does anyone still buy Ja Rule’s records?
