Acting Is Gay, Says Faggot-Spewing Fake Mr. T Rampage Jackson

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, the Ultimate Fighting Championship star, plays B.A. Baracus in the new The A-Team movie. He thinks the whole notion of it is “kind of gay.”

How did we get here? Jackson was talking to a LA Times reporter about his career trajectory. “Acting is kind of gay,” he says. “It makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you’re cold. I don’t want a coat over my shoulders! I’m a tough-ass [individual]!”

See, none of that manicuring takes place in the hallways at UFC! They’re manly men there, straight-only, no gays allowed. But having a trailer to relax in between takes? Gay!

But Mr. Rampage clearly has some deeper unresolved conflicts going on about him. Because even though he says what he’s doing is “gay,” don’t you dare call him that.

At issue: a movie crew member had wandered in on this final day of principal photography and — whether jokingly or not — called the muscle-bound movie star a homophobic epithet. Jackson had responded with barely contained fury. He threw the guy out, shouting him down with every conceivable gay slur. “You’re a punk!” Jackson finally bellowed.

He claimed the crew member’s intent had been to provoke a physical assault. “That … wanted me to punch him so he could sue me,” the professional body-slammer explained, using a certain 12-letter curse word that he lets fly often in conversation — a word that has no business appearing in a family newspaper and, for the sake of this article, will from here on out be substituted with “individual.”

Keep the tradition going, UFC!

And by the way, this is Rampage not being gay:
