MSNBC’s Joy Reid is in hot water since some of her old blog posts have been revealed to be homophobic. Reid has claimed that her blog was hacked, a ridiculous excuse that no one is buying.
Now, an LGBT group has even pulled back an award they once gave to the cable news host.
LGBTQ Group Rescinds Award For Joy Reid After Homophobic Blog Posts Revealed
The LGBTQ advocacy group PFLAG National has rescinded Joy Ann Reid’s allyship award in light of Mediaite‘s report on newly unearthed homophobic posts from the MSNBC pundit’s old blog.
While Reid was slated to accept PFLAG’s Straight for Equality in Media award next month at the organization’s 45th anniversary celebration, the group opted to take back the offer after dozens of blog posts from The Reid Report containing anti-gay material were uncovered by an Internet sleuth.
However, Reid, who apologized in December for writing homophobic posts in 2007, 2008, and 2009 about Congressman Charlie Crist, claims she did not write these newly unearthed entries from The Reid Report. Instead, she alleges nefarious actors planted them to damage her reputation — an unverified claim that has been questioned by many media figures.
The content of the posts range from criticizing gay marriage to expressing discomfort “at the sight of two men kissing,” among other homophobic and anti-gay remarks.
This is much worse than anything Laura Ingraham said last month. Will the left be demanding boycotts of Reid’s advertisers?
