    I don’t think it was fair that Barrowman called out the fan. This fan could honestly have admiration for Barrowman and feel alienated by his use of “tranny,” particularly if the fan has had traumatic experiences involving the word. I think Barrowman should have reached out to this fan and explained himself personally. Barrowman has a right to defend his language, but I don’t think talking about the fan to a crowd of people was a respectful course of action. He has visibility. He has a chance to acknowledge this individual’s perspective, even if he doesn’t agree with it, but instead he chose to take personal offense against the fan. Barrowman sorely mishandled the situation.

    yeah, hes being pretty douche. Hes not a big star so he really should be cool to the fans he has-or had!

  3. When does the word “faggot” become a term of endearment?
