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.
