Bret Easton Ellis Is “Sad” He Was Banned from GLAAD Awards

Break out the world’s tiniest violin because Bret Easton Ellis is sad, everyone.

The American Psycho author was feeling less than zero after GLAAD allegedly banned him from its Media Awards on Saturday and he took his pity party to the Twitterverse:

Ellis also claims that GLAAD — being at least partially aware whom they were effing with — warned him to keep his tweeter shut:

 

bret-easton-ellisGLAAD, however, denies the slight, as VP of Communications Rich Ferraro told The Hollywood Reporter:

“GLAAD spoke with the guest who was planning to bring Bret about some of Bret’s recent remarks, which the gay community responded negatively to. We also asked for a time to sit down with Bret. They decided to replace Bret with a different guest and there has been no response to the offer of a meeting. We hope his tweets don’t overshadow the high-profile allies and everyday LGBT people who will be onstage tonight advocating for equality in the Boy Scouts, marriage and across the country.”

Of course, if GLAAD did ban Bret Easton Ellis, who could blame ’em? This is, after all, the guy who agreed with Paris Hilton’s drunken diatribe on how “disgusting” and AIDS-y the gays are and dismissed Matt Bomer as “too gay” to play the lead in 50 Shades of Grey. Then there’s that time that he likened watching Glee to stepping in a puddle of HIV. All of which, Ellis claims, still makes him a better guest than Bill Clinton:

 

That may be true, but at least Bill Clinton didn’t write the script for Lindsay Lohan’s derailed comeback vehicle, The Canyons. Somethings you just can’t forgive.
