Ramin Setoodeh Crawls Back to Newsweek Because People Wouldn’t Let Him Bash Gays


Ramin Setoodeh, the gay Newsweek writer who argued Sean Hayes was too gay to play straight, decamped for Time Inc.’s People magazine in June as he faced some severe backlash. He was hired to write for the magazine’s human interest section. Now, six months later, he’s left the celebrity weekly — and is heading back to Newsweek

“There’s a lot of opportunity” at Newsweek, “especially on the Web,” says Setoodeh. “I’m excited for the future and I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back. Look, People is the most-read magazine in the country, but it wasn’t the right fit. I’m grateful to [editor] Larry Hackett for being supportive and letting me try something new. But Newsweek still has some of the best reporters, and young reporters, in the business. Don’t count us out.”

Oh Ramin, we’d never count out a magazine with cover stories like this one. Especially now that you’re back there!

      That isn’t a dildo, it’s his finger.

      The dildo is the thing in the picture wearing a black shirt and a dumbass, drunken grin.
