Memo to Fox: Hate is not a family value

It takes a special kind of evil to be able to mock the recently deceased but Fox News radio host John Gibson proved he was just such a troll with his Jan. 22 radio show in which he mocked actor Heath Ledger’s passing with lame Brokeback Mountain jokes. Really? This is what passes as professional by the Fox media corp?

You don’t have to be a Ledger fan to see that when a talented person dies at the age of 28 it is sad. I’ve enjoyed many of Ledger’s movies over the years, including Brokeback, and I’m sure had he lived I would have liked others. But regardless of his talent, it is sad to me that Ledger leaves behind a 3-year-old daughter who will someday have to hear about how some hate-mongering douche-bag named John Gibson was so uncouth as to go on the radio the day after her daddy’s death and mock him.

Obviously, Gibson hates gay people and is trying to say that Ledger himself was gay (for playing a gay character) so we should all be glad he is dead. What an asshole! First and foremost, it shouldn’t be okay for Gibson to peddle his kind of hate on the radio. Second, it is appalling to me that he is getting paid to do just that on a regular basis.

If you’re pissed off like me, then follow GLAADs advice:

TAKE ACTION NOW!
GLAAD strongly urges you to contact Fox News and ask its representatives why they continue to provide a platform for John Gibson’s cruel and tasteless comments.
