Making a Bunch

Brett Ratner
's word is his bond -- three months after he resigned as producer for the Oscars, for using a gay slur, the director has followed through on a promise to work with gay leaders to raise awareness about gay discrimination.

Brett met with officials this weekend for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- and today, they announced a special video campaign (produced and directed by Ratner) in which Hollywood celebs and pro athletes will "come out of the closet" in support of equality.

It's unclear when the video series will be released.

As we previously reported, Ratner -- best known for directing the "Rush Hour" movies -- was at a fan Q&A session for "Tower Heist" back in November when he told the crowd, "Rehearsal is for f*gs."

Ratner was supposed to produce this year's Academy Awards ceremony, but resigned from the position over the gay slur scandal. He has since apologized profusely for his statement.

I always liked Arnold's dis of Lou F. in Pumping Iron when he saw Lou drinking milk and said "Milk is for babies". I think we should all start using that one. This guy could have said "Rehearsal is for babies". Babies wouldn't be offended because ... they're babies.

I bet Tim Tebow will be the first to come out... then maybe Bradley Cooper. Tom Cruise would be a big name to land too.

I am not for homophobia in any regard, but at the same time I am getting sick of gays acting like they need to be specially catered to. Equality does not come from special treatment while attacking anyone who calls it out as a bigot..

And gays need to grow the hell up and accept that the "F**" word is applied to more than just gays, and it never has been.

In England in the 70s a f a g was a smoke, and a f a g g o t was a meatball. And being gay meant you were happy. Well the last part was in America as well.

This is so stupid. Im offended that they are trying to bully people to love them. Once again this just shows that the one that always scream "tolerate me and dont hate me" are the ones that are intolerant and hateful of others. Remember FREE COUNTRY. Everyone does not bow to you all. THank you.
