Seth Rogen Calls Brett Ratner An Anti-Gay Bigot At The 2012 Independent Film Spirit Awards – WINNERS LIST

Last night at the Independent Film Spirit Awards held at Santa Monica beach, California the film community came together to celebrate the very best in independent film-making.  Actor Seth Rogen hosted the ceremony and one of Rogen’s first duties as host it seems was to take a shot at Brett Ratner saying: Without awards season we wouldn’t know what a bigot Brett Ratner was.”  Obviously refferring to Ratner’s the anti-gay slur that he made last year when he said that “rehersal is for fags” when Ratner was set to produce the Academy Awards telecast and then was booted.  But never fear GLAAD smelling celebrity blood in the water jumped on the occasion and now Ratner will be producing  a new video series that will feature Hollywood celebrities, athletes, musicians and politicians ‘coming out of the closet’ as supporters of equality,” (As if  Joe Bob Bigot in Arkansas cares what Whoopi Goldberg has to say)
