GLAAD to Jericho: Thanks for 'Hollow' Apology

11/5/2009 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

GLAAD isn't buyin' Chris Jericho's apology for using anti-gay and racist slurs at a recent event -- in fact, the gay rights group is going after the wrestler for being "insincere and worn."

Chris Jericho

Jarrett Barrios -- president of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- tells TMZ:

Chris Jericho: Click to watch"Just three months ago Chris Jericho's boss and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon acknowledged to GLAAD that words matter.

There is no time, context or occasion in which it is acceptable to utter racist and anti-gay slurs. Jericho's hollow apology 'if (he) offended anyone' is a template used by many and is insincere and worn

"There is no time, context or occasion in which it is acceptable to utter racist and anti-gay slurs."?

Oh Really? Well, ignorant or not, here is why he can say it!

So they don't like his apology...big deal. What does that mean? No gays at his wrestling matches? I don't think that will bother him.

He should have said "c#cks#cker"...that is not exclusive to gays.

Oh come on already! Whatever happened to a person being entitled to their own opinion? Why does he even have to appologize?

It's like I always tell my kids......Not everyone is going to like you so get over it!

Jericho comes off like the worst, spoiled Frat Boy.

As though, because he's a White Man, he's ENTITLED to subjugate others with pejorative labels based on race and sexual orientation.

His rant exposes exactly what is wrong with America.

Ignorance and Arrogance are a dangerous combination.

What an F-ing Tool.

Gold Diggers beware    

People have the right to be offended they DO NOT have the right not to be offended. Thats why we have free speech. I am so tired of these thin skinned people that get so offended over words, thats all they are people words they can't really hurt you, grow up.

Rap sucks    

The F word is actually not meant to homosexuals, but to low life gangbangers who pass with their stolen cars 24/7 blasting that stupid hip hop music. God that crap is so irritating. wherever you are, there they are being the f@gs that they are. At least the biker thing is calming down in here. But the hip hopper problem just doesn't stop. We need to untie and fight! but make sure you are loaded with guns, trained professionally, military experience. Because there's billions of them worldwide and you know how they are. Hell, i bet they even got that problem in the suburbs. Whether is the local white boy wanna be black, or just the ones from the hood passing by just being f@gs.
