HO­MO­PHOBES SAY IT… WE SLAY IT!

THE HIT:

“You’re sell­ing toi­let pa­per, why do you have to inject ho­mo­sex­u­als into your com­mer­cials. It’s dis­gust­ing.” A Twit­ter user con­demns Cot­tonelle’s lat­est ad­vert fea­tur­ing a gay cou­ple.

THE SLAY:

“No mat­ter a per­son’s ori­en­ta­tion… at Cot­tonelle Brand, di­ver­sity is em­braced in all as­pects and we are proud to share a com­mer­cial that is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of that,” said the soft-yet-but­t­kick­ing re­sponse from Cot­tonelle.

THE HIT:

“I’ve re­it­er­ated many times that same­sex cou­ples and sin­gle par­ents can suc­cess­fully raise a child. But I be­lieve pa­ter­nal and ma­ter­nal love are like vi­ta­mins and min­er­als to hu­man­ity,” an­nounced Brook­lyn Nine-Nine ac­tor, Terry Crews.

THE SLAY:

“Love is not gen­dered. A child will not starve with only one gen­der lov­ing them,” tweeted @jakesheron­dale on Twit­ter, one of many who tried to school Crews on so­cial me­dia.

THE HIT:

“I used to lead a ho­mo­sex­ual life­style, and then I found God… I stopped fol­low­ing my pas­sions to fol­low Je­sus. There can be love be­tween two men, yes – but only friend­ship love. Ev­ery­thing else is a sin,” de­clared X Fac­tor Malta con­tes­tant, Matthew Grech in his preau­di­tion in­ter­view.

THE SLAY:

“That in­ter­view should never have been aired in the first place… It did un­told dam­age to our ef­forts to change so­cial at­ti­tudes to­wards mi­nor… LGBTIQ youths. Gay youths don’t need for­give­ness or heal­ing, they need un­der­stand­ing,” re­sponded Malta’s Equal­ity Min­is­ter, Helena Dalli.

“I can’t be­lieve we’re in 2019 and we’re talk­ing about be­ing gay as if it’s some kind of ill­ness,” added X Fac­tor host, Ben Camille.

THE HIT:

Ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity is pun­ish­able by death in Saudi Ara­bia, Su­dan and Ye­men.

THE SLAY:

“If I, as a gay per­son, would not talk about that, I would have a prob­lem,” said Lux­em­bourg’s Prime Min­is­ter, Xavier Bet­tel, who is mar­ried to a man. He con­fronted Arab lead­ers over their anti­gay laws at a con­fer­ence be­tween the EU and the Arab League, telling them he would be put to death in many of their coun­tries.
