Thought actor Rex Lee was just one of the boys on the set of Entourage? Not only is he persecuted and the butt of the jokes on the television series, but he’s also on the receiving end of homophobic and racial slurs off camera.
Lee, 40, says he “occasionally” hears naughty words thrown his way during taping of the show, where he plays the assistant-cum-agent Lloyd, often demoralized by boss Ari.
And that’s a surprise to Entourage creator Doug Ellin, who says that before the cameras start rolling again, he’ll “be speaking to everybody before we start filming again in March. It’s not something condoned or acceptable.”
Finally, an appropriate reaction when dealing with Hollywood homophobia.
