GLAAD to Ja Rule -- You Da Problem, Homey!

9/14/2007 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ja RuleRapper Ja Rule recently made the following asinine statement in Complex Magazine about what he thinks is really causing the downfall of society, "...lets talk about all these f***ing shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, that my kids can't watch this s**t. Dating shows that's showing two guys or two girls in mid afternoon. Let's talk about s**t like that! If that's not f***ing up America, I don't know what is." Um, how 'bout gun violence, poverty and a broken health care system?!

Get GLAAD's statement, after the jump.


In response to Ja's homophobic remarks, GLAAD issued the following statement:

"No fair-minded person can look at JaRule's interview with Complex Magazine and believe for one second that his children could be more harmed by what they might see on television than by the vulgarity and prejudice that comes out of their father's mouth. Now that media have seen JaRule's intolerance unmasked by his own words, they have a responsibility not to provide in the future a platform for his ugly, vulgar displays of prejudice." Word!

Ja Rule is a waste of a human being. He can talk badly about gay people, but if someone said something about his black ass then he'd be ready to fight. He looks like the dog he is.

He's a douche bag. He typical of someone who is uneducated and from the streets.
Unfortunately for his kids they will most likely turn out just like him. And if he doest like whats on playing on MTV then change the channel.
Promoting gun violence and cop killing in music is great teaching for children?
Oh and I almost forgot portraying yourselves running from the police in your music videos is okay for children to watch.
No better than MIcheal Vick.

Seriously    

He is completely entitled to his opinion. JUST because GLAAD beats most of America into accepting their propagandized agenda, does not mean we have LOST our FREEDOM of SPEECH and OPINIONS in this country. Let a brotha speak

Go Ja - This is just ONE of many problems. Socialized medicine WILL NOT cure American's moral decay. While I am not a Ja Rule supporter I do agree with him on this.

- My Opinion and I'm stickin' to it!

He is right -

Most major civilizations fall from within (Romans, etc.) -

How do they reproduce ?
Shouldn't they have gone extinct eons ago ?

I am not sure who this Ja Rule is but he is right. There are other
problems too such as the ones mentioned by tmz, however when you are
trying to raise good kids having so many immoral images doesn't help.
I am not just referring to the ones containing gays - there is so
much indescriminant sex as well as language on during the day and
early evening that it isn't funny.

Doing whatever one wants behind
closed doors (as long as it is consensual) is one thing and no ones
business but the participants. Presenting it as 'normal' or cool to
children is another. Of course rap is hardly setting a good example either so perhaps this rapper should start in his own back yard.

I feel as if he was wrong for that statement even though everyone is entitiled to their own statement. There's a certain way certain things should be said. I'm not a lesbian but I have plenty of friends who are and I personally take offense to it. Now to those comments about Rap music. Yes some people talk about drugs, sex, murder, etc. But So does certain Rock N Roll bands and other people besides Rap. You people just always think "black" music is just so wrong. How about if you have something to say about music that you don't even listen to just shut the eph up and think about what you say before you say it... or better yet criticize your own before you criticize someone else.

You know Ja Rule is on the 'Down Low'. He's a Richard Smoker and he knows it.

So the real question is.. Does he talk like that in front of his kids? I mean he has no problem talking to the media so that his words can be seen by other people's kids. And while he's at it maybe he can teach his children and other people's children to hate people who aren't like them. Yeah that's a great idea. Nothing like prejudice and four letter words to show off good parenting skills. /sarcasm
