We guess Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s teenage son, Connor, spent too much time DJing at the Super Bowl pre-party and never made it to the stadium. Otherwise, he might’ve gotten schooled by GLSEN’s “Think B4 U Speak” PSA and not sent a homophobic text to his openly gay publicist Todd Krim.
According to Page Six, Krim poked fun at Connor regarding the Patriots’ loss, tweeting “Sorry @TheConnorCruise maybe next year!!!”
Krim (left), who founded the charity Give Back Hollywood and has helped the younger Cruise launch his fledgling DJ career, responded: “Ummm ok… Dude I was f**king joking.” Cruise responded: “That was f**ked / IDGAF [I don't give a f**k].”
On Monday, Krim blasted out an e-mail with screenshots of the text to PR colleagues, saying: “I am no longer working with Connor Cruise.” Krim went on to call Cruise’s comments “highly offensive and what I consider homophobic.”
Cruise hasn’t acknowledged the controversy on his Twitter feed but said through a rep to Page Six: “What I texted was unacceptable. It is not a reflection of who I am and what I feel, and it certainly won’t happen again.”
Is that enough of a mea culpa, or do we need to sic GLAAD on Cruise’s ass?
