Scott Thompson Sucks at Gay Softball Event

10/9/2007 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Exclusive: Scott Thompson"Kids in the Hall" actor Scott Thompson just blew it with the gays. Thompson performed at the Softball Gay World Series opening ceremonies in Phoenix last week, well, that is if you could call what he did a "performance."

According to our source, the comedian began bombing right after he dissed Kathy Griffin. You don't diss Kathy to the gays! He then went on to clear out the stadium with "lame vulgar jokes and even used the N word." At one point, he stopped his act and addressed a gaggle of lesbians that turned their backs to him, and said, "Thanks for turning your backs while I'm here actually trying to do something. Trying to perform!" Key word: "trying."

The next day, the Series Director sent out a letter of apology to each team that was subjected to Thompson's act, stating that comments "made by Mr. Thompson were not approved," and that they were sorry they "did not pull the plug sooner." Swing, and a miss! For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

Scott Thompson is a comic genius. I think he should be given an award for speaking his mind about the very tired Kathy Griffin. Her act is old and mostly only popular with the gays. Is it any wonder why she works tirelessly trying to fit in as many gigs as possible before her career is over?
The gay male community very seldom embraces gay male comedians. They tend to stick with the raunchy straight female comedians. Scott is far more talented than Kathy in almost every way.
I'm sure Ms. Griffin will be the first to admit this.

As far as the "N" word. Scott has huge love for the African American population.
If you knew anything about him at all, you would know that this is true.
All of this has been blown out of the soft ball field.
Scott will be around long after Kathy has washed up.
More than likely he'll end up buying her house at a bankruptcy sale and moving in with his African American lover.

Uh, no one cares. Furthermore, if they had an event called the Heterosexual or Straight People Softball World Series, the gays would be protesting in the streets.

They prolly couldn't even get the game in because they would be arguing and complaining about the uniforms. I would hate to be the umpire of that crap fest.

Thompson could out flash, humour and wit Kathy Griffin in his sleep.
Being over-the-top, obnoxious and cynical does not a "Gay Icon" make. Griffin is very funny but overall, she's just bitter and it comes across in everything she does. The act can be interesting, but it grows tired really damn fast.
Thompson is a riot. Using the "N" word? Eh...not super bright, but his schtick is always different and funny.

Most "Gay" men’s softball team could/would probably kick most of your "straight" men's softball teams @ssess. Not all gay men are Nancy boys with limp wrist believe it or not. Why you probably work, eat and possible sleep (firemen, oil rigs, etc) with them without even knowing. Plus if you're not a gay man and you hate them so much. Why waste you're straight guy time by posting anything?? I know you hate them sooo much you just want to hold them down and spank them good and hard! Again and again. You know you do!

Despite what TMZ might think, the gay world is still not something most of us want to read about. I would venture to say very few people on this site care at all about gay issues or what the gays are 'up to' this week.

Wow... I never knew that so many TMZers were so intolerant. It amazes me. BTW there is a "straight" world series. It’s called the World Series. As we all know being homosexual in any major sport is not accepted. And it’s a shame because there are a lot of great gay people in major league sports that have to hide to keep their career. If you don’t think so then you are living in denial.

You are obviously not a Christian; Christians don't tell people to go to hell, but you're jackin a Christian belief and using a Christian reference. Odd...
