Reggie Bush -- 'No Homo'

12/30/2010 9:00 PM PST BY Johnny Lopez

In today's second gay-themed celebrity Twitter of the day, Reggie Bush asks: If someone says "no homo," is that offensive towards gay people?

For those unfamiliar, the term "no homo" is used (often in rap lyrics) to qualify a statement or compliment to a member of the same sex that they feel could come off as sounding "gay."

Although we're not Dr. Phil, we have interviewed him, and we're sure he'd say use of the term reveals an insecure need to prove one's heterosexuality by simultaneously distancing themselves as far as possible from being thought of as ... wait for it ... a gay person.

So is it offensive? Well, imagine if someone said, "I love rap music ... No black." Or ... "I'd like a bagel ... No Jew."

Seems the answer to your question Reggie ... is yes.

So tired of politicial correctness. TMZ, you're always coming down on Hollywood and yet you are exemplifying one of Hollywood's very worst qualities. To all of you at TMZ, all of you in Hollywood, and all of you with a chip of whatever make on your shoulder all over this worlds - sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you - do you remember your parents teaching you that? Do you understand what it meant? No? Okay, let me explain what your parents were trying to teach you. "Toughen up, loser! People are gonna call you names and say things you don't like. So what? Get over it and move on!'

Everybody's so busy being a victim of some '-phobia' today. And everybody else is so scared of being called a bigot. Whole country's turned into a nation of wussies.

Love ya Harvey but you guys need to back off of Chris Breezy! He is NOT perfect, NO one is, but at least he has been trying to be a changed young man! If you guys want someone to mess with, go mess with Raz B and his gangsta clown brother named Ricky "Romance"! They are the ones who are nothing but attention seeking whores! They have not had a hit song in years!

the truth    

kids will say OH THATS SO GAY but they don't mean gay guy/girls. most of the time anyways. sometimes when they say that it means that's ugly. but why is it OK for people to call other people white trash without an argument? i don't have a prejudice bone in my body . they NOW say if people are prejudice have mental problems.
ITS JUST A COLOR PEOPLE! BUT why dont people argue about others saying WHITE TRASH?

TMZ is retarded, Being G A Y is not defined as a creed or a race, it is nothing but a lifestyle, like people trying to say it's racist lol.
