Lorrie Morgan Backs Out Of GLAAD Event After Uproar Over Transphobic, Racist Social Media Posts Comments (0)

Country singer Lorrie Morgan, who had been set to perform as part of GLAAD's Ty Herndon and Cody Alan-hosted Concert for Love and Acceptance in Nashville in June, has backed out after complaints regarding her thoughtless (at best) social media posts.

Read My Original Post About Morgan's Vile Facebook Shares

The name of the event had little to do with Morgan's Facebook page, on which she shared a nakedly racist anti-Michelle Obama meme, and on which she made clear she is firmly against trans bathroom rights.

She also shared a meme from an anti-marriage equality page, though she later professed to strongly believe in equality.

In her first stab at calming the complaints, Morgan pathetically claimed she had simply put her foot in her mouth, and chalked it up to wine. She never took responsibility for the content of what she posted, instead arguing that she is not anti-LGBT:

GLAAD In Need Of A GLAAD Moment Of Its Own Over Lorrie Morgan Brouhaha Comments (0)

Lorrie Morgan is a big-time country singer who will be appearing at an LGBTQ event co-hosted LorrieMorganPublicity by out country artist Ty Herndon and out CMT host Cody Alan — and yet, on her personal Facebook page, she has routinely mocked trans rights.

This is messed up.

The Concert for Love and Acceptance is a nice idea, a benefit for GLAAD held in Nashville and featuring country acts like Herndon, Billy Gilman (GLAAD misspells his name in its press release), Dana Goldberg, Kree Harrison, Michael Ray, Mickey Guyton, Runaway June, Ryan Kinder, Street Corner Symphony, Thompson Square and Trent Harmon. It's a positive thing to hold an event for LGBTQ issues in the South, where empathy for the cause is perceived to be low, and Morgan's inclusion was a good idea before her antipathy for trans people came to light.

I mean, what do you do when one of the stars appearing has shared memes like this:

Morgan is approvingly passing on a nasty, anti-trans message that was initially posted by a group that is opposed to gay marriage.

She also shared this one, which is the tip of the iceberg as far as her anti-Obama tendencies:

Why The MTV Movie & TV Awards Mattered Comments (0)

Aside from a catastrophic performance overall by otherwise endearing, adorbs host Adam Devine, the MTV Movie & TV Awards went bold this year, awarding actors instead of actors and actresses, and honoring a gay kiss, rewarding a diverse array of performers and performances.

I mean, the network's Best Kiss Award went to the young men who smooched in Moonlight — a black, gay kiss — which years ago would be about as likely as me not spending half my day on 7Sultans mobile casino app:

Some who rail against PC will find this move into the future irritating, but in particular, I've thought for a long time the arbitrary distinctions in Best Actor/Best Actress categories have felt like relics of the past. It feels like there is a Best Actor category, and then one for Actress just 'cuz, you know, the girls can't win.

But in MTV's first stab at a gender-neutral ceremony, a girl did win — Emma Watson took home the popcorn trophy for her role in Beauty and the Beast, itself a trail-blazing film for its somewhat “gay moment.”

I almost found Watson's speech ridiculous — she gave a heartfelt speech worthy of winning an Oscar, or a Nobel Peace Prize! — until I listened on and realized she was right to make a big deal about the award, and to take the time to unpack why she won it. She was right that it wasn't just for her acting, but also for what her film represents, and while we all know the MTV Movie & TV Awards are not going to be as free of politics and vote-rigging as the Oscars, I think the show's vibe and her speech really did make progress in the culture.

Sadly, though it took a move to VH1 for RuPaul to suddenly be recognized as the true icon he is — he was named an influencer by Time out of nowhere, finally! — and though he did win for Best Reality Series, he was not allowed to accept his award from the stage. Instead, host Devine dropped it at his table.

Choosing RuPaul (indeed, inviting him to a major awards show) was a big deal, but silencing him was pretty offensive, especially when there was a lot of crappy filler during the show — I mean, they could have cut the jaw-droppingly lame opening by 60 seconds to let Ru say something funny, no?

Still,  it was one false note in a show drenched in diversity — and not diversity for diversity's sake, but because diverse is what true excellence looks like.

Plus, it's always a pleasure to see Aaron Taylor-Johnson, especially when he's awarding my favorite movie of the year so far, Get Out, and seeing Maxine Waters given a hero's welcome was worth sitting through Noah Cyrus.

 

Tonight I had the pleasure of giving my buddy.. #danielkaluuya the @mtv Next Generation Award 🐯#getout

The L.A. Riots Were 25 Years Ago: What Has Changed? Comments (0)

Twenty-five years (!) after the L.A. Riots, James St. James at World of Wonder landed a newsworthy exclusive — a one-on-one La-me-ra-transgender-zoey-tur-20150724with reporter Zoey Tur, who filmed Reginald Denny's beating and was shot at in the process.

Tur, a trans activist, recalls one of the most consequential days in the modern history of race relations in the U.S:

The day of the Los Angeles Riots was scary, there was so much tension. Right after the not guilty verdict, I turned to (my then-wife) Marika and said, “Let the riots begin!” I knew it would happen. One of my news directors from the TV station called me up and said, “Go fly and tell everyone how peaceful the city is.” As I was reporting, I saw that it wasn’t. I believed I would be arrested as soon as I landed, because what we learned was is that the LAPD top commanders had left the city to burn.

She also has some pointed words for the state of our union today:

I’m very positive about California, but then again, the rest of the country, you have to realize that just under 50% of the population are very racist. They voted for their racism. That’s why the polls were never accurate because no one wanted to admit their racism. Before the election, I said they would go into the voting booth and say ‘Fuck Transgender bathrooms, Fuck Black Lives Matter, “Fuck those Mexicans! I want mine!” And that’s exactly what they did. And don’t think gay marriage didn’t have anything to do with it! That was the last gasp of the white, heterosexual male.
