Whatever you say, dear
In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog.”
While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic content on a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.”
FWIW, I don’t think the comments on the blog, which amounted to, “a lot of straight people think gay sex is gross” is homophobic or even offensive. Which makes me think if her old blog was hacked, as she claimed…. well, 4Chan could have put a lot more interesting stuff than *that* on it, that’s all I’m saying.
