The Tennessee Republican Caucus has voted to keep Lt. Gov. Randy McNally (R) in his role as state senate speaker despite recent controversy over comments he made on a young gay man’s sexy Instagram photos.
McNally will stay in leadership after a 19-7 confidence vote despite one GOP lawmaker accusing him of “grooming” after it came out that McNally had befriended the gay man years ago when he was still a minor.
State Rep. Todd Warner (R) said that Republicans have not only “become the laughingstock of the nation, the bottom line is this: Randy McNally is a predator” who “began sexually grooming his victim when he was a 17-year-old minor” by “relentlessly” commenting on his social media posts, sending him private messages, and calling him.
McNally a 79-year-old great-grandfather married to a woman apologized for his social media “activity” and said that he would be “pausing” until learns more about netiquette.
“I apologize for any embarrassment my postings have caused my family, friends, and colleagues. For this reason, I will be pausing my social media activity in order to reflect and receive more guidance on the use of social media,” he said.
McNally also stressed last week besides not being gay that he’s also not anti-LGBTQ+, despite his support of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.
“I’m not anti-gay,” McNally said. “Well, we pass bills that kind of limit certain things, and I think there are safeguards in there.”
In separate hearings, a Moscow court ordered Meta to pay four million rubles (S$74,000) and TikTok 2 million rubles for failing to delete content with LGBT “propaganda”, news agency Interfax reported. Since the start of Moscow’s military campaign in Ukraine, Russia has ramped up pressure on social networks, banning Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
I know what many of you are thinking: Will that offset the money Russia sent Zuckerbeast to allow their disinformation?
After trying to weedle their way out of their anti-gay comments on Sunday by releasing a statement reading: “It was never our intention to judge other people’s choices. We do believe in freedom and love.” and that Dolce was expressing his personal views “without judging other people’s choices.” Stefano Gabbana seeing it was not working took to Instagram not much later to compare their situation to that of Charlie Hebdo magazine which was the victim of a gun attack o, which left 12 people dead.
The unmitigated gall of comparing and playing victim to tragedy where people are physically attacked and killed for satire is very different from people choosing to not to buy D&G’s overpriced crap because they offended millions of people. It is not only insane but offensive beyond words. How dare they exploit other people’s deaths and compare it to them losing profits and reputation.
If their original remarks were not enough to drive you to #BoycottDolceGabbana this is.
Said Barrino: “My whole team is gay, my manager is gay, middle finger up to those who seak (sic) to destroy me. It won’t work…….. I don’t judge anybody!”
Fantasia shut the fuck up already. You are your own worst enemy.
Gurl! You need to realize that there IS such a thing as bad publicity and you are going overboard and creating your own.
All you need to do to is this controversy go away and get back in good graces is to get off the freaking Instagram and make a clear and coherent short statement that that you support equality for gay people and promise to sing at some HRC parties and galas and they’ll forgive you.
