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.

Am I missing something here? Every week, the writers write a barrage of jokes and one-liners about Lloyd's sexuality, but no one on the set is allowed to utter their unscripted jokes...I'm so confused.

"...(gays) that hate those who voted YES on 8. It is a personal choice just like theirs".



It's a personal choice, you say? You would benefit by familiarising yourself with the concept of contradiction. Proposition 8 explicitly restricts the right to personal choice, and any mandate that seeks this end, not instigated for the purpose of negating harm, can only by the patently sick mind be construed as legitimate.

the producer is also head writer..its his fault because he writes the homo and ethnic jokes into the show..the character is gay and asian and ari his boss is saying chop chop and other sexual charged material..the crew is around this and thinks that the producer condones this behavior..maybe the producer should stop writing these slurs in the production of entourage
