Gay & Racial Jabs on 'Entourage' Set

11/20/2009 6:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The creator of "Entourage" is vowing to put a stop to the gay and racial "jokes" being thrown around on the set of his show, after one of the stars revealed he's "occasionally" targeted ... and unhappy about it.

Rex Lee: Click to watch
Rex Lee -- who plays Lloyd on the show -- was out in L.A. yesterday, where he claimed certain members of the crew "occasionally" make fun of his ethnicity and sexuality on set. Rex added, "I try not to let it bother me."

After Lee's admission, the show's creator Doug Ellin told TMZ he's "shocked and horrified" to hear about the situation and "will be speaking to everybody before we start filming again in March. It's not something condoned or acceptable."

Ellin also told us he already spoke to Lee -- and during the convo, Rex re-confirmed that crew members had made "insensitive gay jokes."

Ellin claims he's now going to lay down the gauntlet, telling Rex if it happens again, the culprit will be fired.

What a bunch of stupid racist homophobes commenting. If you actually looked at the interview, the guy obviously doesn't really care too much about the name calling. He just commented because the pap asked a question. Its not like hes going around yelling about how the crew are racist or homophobic and demanding them to get fired.

It's not his fault the producer wants to make a big deal about it.

Scott, that's absolutely idiotic. Does being called a "breeder" really hurt your feelings so much? And how often do you get called "breeder"? I haven't even heard that word since the 90s--except by people trying to excuse their anti-gay bigotry.

What a bunch of idiots posting on this page--he's getting paid to act not put up with stupid bigots on the crew--and they're getting paid to do their jobs not to make stupid bigoted comments. Those of you who think you should just put up with stupid bigoted harrassment at work need to get a real job and not just spend all day watching TMZ.

GET A LIFE YOU BUNCH OF CRY BABIES. YOU WANT EQUALITY THEN TAKE IT LIKE THE REST OF US WHO ARE THE BRUNT OF MANY JOKES REGARDING DIFFERENT CULTURES, STYLES, MANNERISMS, JUST LIFE'S TOUGH LUCK!!!
You individuals are not unique jump in line and by the way who is the biggest meanest bunch of hate mongers unleashed is the Gays (certainly never happy kind of a oxymoron) that hate those who voted YES on 8. It is a personal choice just like theirs so give others some breathing room because you sound like a bunch of racist hypocrits.


GLAAd they can't blame the Republicans nor the Independents for the current state of California. The Democrats are raping and pilaging the taxpayers just fine on their own. It will always be someone else's fault though....

Wow. What a bunch of crazy heffers commenting here. I say good for Mr. Ellin for not tolerating this kind of work environment. It's one thing for friends to call each other names in a teasing way, but quite another for co-workers to create a terrible work environment. As for Scott's ridiculous comment: I lived in Toronto's gay neighbourhood for years and was never once called a breeder, except in jest by friends, which is totally fine.

Bunch of whiteys. ;-)

The creator's response is admirable and hopefully he will follow through. Top management is always responsible for ensuring the workplace is free of harrassment, insensitivity and violence.

I am shocked and appalled to hear of the conduct of the people on this show. I doubt that disciplining them will do any good and may in fact make things worse. However, the "creator" has no choice but to do the right thing.
