I know country music is red state mana, but Seriously Reba? McEntire and Blake Shelton cracked a tiiiiiired gay joke at Jake Gyllenhaal’s expense last night at the Country Music Awards. The cowboys in the audience chuckled as the two waxed philosophical about Taylor Swift’s inability to hold down a man.
(Editor: Could it maybe be that Swift is simply not a pleasure to be romantically involved with? Why is it everyone else’s fault that she is single? Single happens. Get over it.)
The sorry exchange went a little something like this:
Reba: “She writes songs about guys who break up with her, which I don’t understand in the first place. She’s beautiful, she’s talented, she’s sweet. What in the world was Jake Gyllenhaal thinking?”
Blake: “Wait a minute… He was in Brokeback Mountain!”
CBS immediately yanked the offensive footage from the internet in hopes of squashing criticism of the televised homophobia. Thankfully, we scored a low-res clip to share with you.
Let me break down a few things for y’all here.
- Brokeback Mountain came out in 2005. Six years ago. How about you get some new material? Also, Gyllenhaal’s co-star and pal in real life, Heath Ledger DIED from a tragic overdose not long after. How about you lay off the fucking gay taunts about a talented actor who lost his friend?
- Reba, aren’t you supposed to be an ally of the gay community? Way to be a fair weather friend. Put a girl in a room full of cowboy hats and her true colors show. Fancy, you’ve let me down.
- Finally, if Blake Shelton wishes to dress like a homosexual, he should also be more considerate of pissing them the fuck off.
Are you disappointed with Reba and Blake? Ech…it’s just so typical.
