Ja Rule

In 2007 GLAAD called out Ja Rule for homophobic statements he made in Complex magazine about what he thinks is really causing the downfall of society: "Let’s talk about all these f--king shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, dating shows that's showing two guys or two girls in mid-afternoon. If that's not f--king up America, I don't know what is." GLAAD responded with the following statement: "No fair-minded person can look at Ja Rule's interview with Complex Magazine and believe for one second that his children could be more harmed by what they might see on television than by the vulgarity and prejudice that comes out of their father's mouth. Now that media have seen Ja Rule's intolerance unmasked by his own words, they have a responsibility not to provide in the future a platform for his ugly, vulgar displays of prejudice." Ironically, Ja Rule took care of that by himself, by going to prison for tax evasion.
