CAA Inks

Etheridge-Hating Savage

3/1/2007 3:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Savage vs. Melissa EtheridgeHollywood powerhouse talent pimps, Creative Artists Agency, has signed nationally syndicated homophobic radio host Michael Savage for representation in all areas.

Savage, whose real name is Michael Alan Weiner, hosts the conservative radio program "Savage Nation," and just this week, he lashed out against breast cancer survivor/Oscar winner Melissa Etheridge -- for thanking her wife, Tammy Lynn Michaels and their kids during her Academy Awards acceptance speech. Savage said, "I don't like a woman married to a woman. It makes me want to puke. I want to vomit when I hear it. I think it's child abuse."

He further commented on homosexuality saying, "There are people who are sexually confused, who think that they're men when they're women. They're not normal."

Savage's anti-gay tirade, although typical for his radio show, is especially troubling considering Etheridge is also a CAA client! Besides Savage and Etheridge, CAA reps some of the biggest names in the business, including Julia Roberts and Tom Cruise.

Calls to CAA reps were not immediately returned.

If any of you have ever listened to Savages show this is what he does, he expresses his opinions whether we like it or not. Unfortunately most of his opinions suck. Personally, I don't care who is gay or staight, everyone knows Melissa E is "married" and has been married to her partner longer than some of the straight stars out there, if she wants to thank her "wife" for her Oscar then I say let her, why not? Savage is a hateful man anyway, instead of flying to his Mothers bedside to be with her, he had a funeral for her when she was dying a couple of years ago, he had his show turned on in her hospital room so she could hear the dirge music he was playing and his memories of growing up in the Bronx , what a guy!! He didn't sound like he cared for his Mother and especially disliked his father so why should gays escape his hate, he's full of it.

Michael Savage is unique.

He says what is on some people's mind, but is not often said. He is anti-PC and that's why its fun to listen to him. There is tons of PC stuff out there.

The problem is that ACTIVIST Gays make it worst for all gays. Listen to Rosie Rant!

She should be fired!!!
