Warning to Gay Celebs Coming Out: People Just Hired Newsweek‘s Ramin Setoodeh

People, the magazine where the world’s most famous celebrities go to come out, has hired Newsweek‘s Ramin Setoodeh, we’ve learned.

Setoodeh, who’s penned multiple misinformed and poorly researched pieces for Newsweek about The Gays, his latest concerning Sean Hayes’ queeny-ness, will write for People‘s human interest section. “Every gay is in uproar” at People, a source says. “Only stupid straight men [like chief editor] Larry Hackett would hire him.”

This website recommended Newsweek fire him; we didn’t imagine he’d instead end up at a magazine people actually read, let alone the one title where gay talent feels safe. He starts in mid-July.

    “Human Interest”

    I’m not convinced he meets the qualifications.


    Ramin Douchoodeh’s cover is going to have a similar layout to Lance’s. However he will loudly proclaim: “I’m an Asshole”

    Great news ! Now Ramin can do some serious investigative journalism and win a Pulitzer prize! His parents must be so very very proud.

    I look forward to a two paragraph, in-depth, analysis of what Sandra Bulllock has for breakfast…..

    Jesus fucking christ. Who gives shit. He wrote a chintzy article about gay actors. It’s not like he tied them to a fucking fence and beat the shit out of them.

  • thelonious

    Well, he is actually gay you know, not to mention kinda cute. Personally I don’t see a problem giving him another chance :3

  • alan brickman

    there were some truths in that badly written article you know…

  • slobone

    @alan brickman: I agree, but I think it’s just you and me…

    Let’s face it, some actors are just too gay to play straight convincingly, just as some straight actors can’t play gay. There shouldn’t be anything controversial about that.

    Where I disagreed with him was that I don’t think it has anything to do with whether they’re “openly” gay. I didn’t buy David Hyde Pierce or TR Knight as heterosexual characters, and that was before they officially came out.

    So, did he get fired from “Newsweek”?
