GLAAD doesn’t love Chachi. Scott Baio, star of Happy Days, and his wife have sparked an online war of words using anti-gay slurs.
And, RadarOnline.com has exclusive reaction from the Gay And Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). “Using anti-gay rants to lash out at this media outlet serves no legitimate purpose,” says a spokesman for the media watchdog organization.
It all started last Thursday when the star of VH1’s Scott Baio is 45…And Single tweeted “Taxes are DONE…That should feed, house & provide medical for a few lazy non working people at my expense. Have a great Monday!”
Jezebel.com published a timeline of his tweets that created a firestorm of criticism from Scott calling the editors “ignorant racists.”
Then his wife, Renee, got into the fray and on Facebook called the Jezebel editors “You bunch of FAR LEFT Lesbian s******es!!!!!!!”
The vicious rant went on to read, “No wonder you’re all Lesbos because what man in his right mind could put up with your c***ness? Scott Baio has more class in his p**s than all of you all!!!”
Then 40 minutes later she turned to Facebook again writing: “True FACT: I have lesbian friends that couldn’t be nicer. They are true loyal friends. Those jezebel lesbians are S*****ES!!!!”
Five days later Scott continued the online battle by defending his wife’s anti-gay comments. “We all have the right to exercise our freedom of speech, including my wife,” he wrote on Twitter. “Funny how opposing view comments aren’t allowed on that rag site.”
Now GLAAD is outraged. A spokesman tells RadarOnline.com, “It (the anti-gay rant) is misguided and contributes to putting LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) people in harm’s way.”
