They Said What??? Home Depot, Sharon Osbourne, & Vladimir Putin

ALABAMA REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE DEAN YOUNG

“I’m against homosexuals pretending like they’re married. Marriage is between one man and one woman and no one needs to go to Washington representing south Alabama if they don’t believe that.”

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN

(speaking to International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach and others):  “On my own and on your behalf, I have assured Mr. President (Bach) that we will do our best, and our athletes and fans will do their best too, so that both participants and guests feel themselves comfortable at Sochi Olympics regardless of their ethnicity, race or sexual orientation.  I would like to underline that.”

CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL

(visiting Chicago gay bar Sidetrack last week after the Illinois House voted for marriage equality): “When two adults love each other, the state should embrace that, rather than stand in the way.”

TV TALK SHOW HOST SHARON OSBOURNE

(apologizing to the ladies of “The View”.  On the “Arsenio Hall,” she said that all of the hosts of “The View”, except for Barbara Walters, could “go f**k themselves.”):  “I was inappropriate and I was trying to be funny at somebody else’s expense.  I want to apologize to Jenny, Sherri and Whoopi…it was my irreverent behavior and no disrespect meant.”

HOME DEPOT COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR STEPHEN HOLMES

(apologizing after an associate sent out a tweet for a college football promotion which included a picture of a person in a gorilla suits and two African-American men drumming on overturned buckets and the caption, “which drummer is not like the others?”):  “We have zero tolerance for anything so stupid and offensive.  The outside agency that created the tweet and the Home Depot associate who posted it have been terminated. We’re also closely reviewing our social media procedures to determine how this could have happened, and how to ensure it never happens again.”

“GLEE” ACTOR MATTHEW MORRISON

“I know my own truth, I’m a very happy heterosexual man…  I have a lot of gay friends and I’m a big supporter of gay rights and gay marriage. This is America, this is the land of freedom and opportunity and I think it’s kind of crazy that a loving or committed gay or lesbian couple can’t marry just because they’re different.  I support my gay friends and they support me.”

SINGER SELENA GOMEZ

“You fall in love and it completely consumes you.  So a part of you is broken when that’s gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you’re just like, forget it-I can do anything I want. I’ve tried it, and I’ve never been that girl. I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night.”

ROCKER TED NUGENT

(about the possibility of a Presidential bid):  “I have threatened to run for public office, because I have been prodded to do so, and pushed hard in Texas and other states, and here in Michigan.  And I believe my sense of logic, my sense of common sense, my connection to people who are in the asset column of America.  I believe that I would perform an enormous upgrade in returning to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and most important of all accountability.”

They Said What??? Cissy Houston, John McCain, & Ted Nugent

ROCKER TED NUGENT

(a gun rights activist to CNN’s Piers Morgan):  “Do you care about murders? Or do you only care about about murders with guns?  I don’t think you do. I think you care about guns. You’re obsessed with guns.”

MORE NUGENT

“99.99% of the gun owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. Perfectly safe. Perfectly harmless. Wonderful, loving, generous, giving, caring people. Would you leave us the hell alone? Go after the nut jobs, go after the murderers, because I don’t know any. We need to lock up the bad guys and when people show dangerous, murderous intent, which everyone one of these mass-murderers showed.”

ARIZONA SENATOR JOHN McCAIN

(in a Tweet than some in his party see as racist):  “So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week? “Iran launches monkey into space”

MORE McCAIN
(in response to the backlash): “Re: Iran space tweet – lighten up folks, can’t everyone take a joke?”

BALTIMORE RAVEN BRENDON AYANBADEJO

“Everyone’s been talking to gay people their whole lives whether we know it or not. We really believe that you’re born gay. I’ve had plenty of conversations with people that are gay and they say they are born gay, no different than me being born this beautiful almond coconut color that I am. People are born gay. So why treat them any differently? It’s time that we treat everybody fairly.  And not only are we trying to dictate who should love, we’re also trying to dictate who people should be.  If a woman wants to wear a man’s clothes or if a man wants to wear a woman’s clothes or you feel like you’re a woman on the inside and you’re really a man. Who cares? Let’s just treat everybody equally. Let’s move on. Let’s evolve as a culture, as a people.”

POP SINGER JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

(at a New Orleans Super Bowl concert before singing his hit “Cry Me A River”):  “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one, but then one day you find out that she is just some bitch.”

MORE TIMBERLAKE

(clarifying that he wasn’t talking about his ex, Britney Spears, in a Tweet):  “Ok. I see you. Wouldn’t disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love that saying though*with accent* #Respect.”

LIBBY PHELPS ALVAREZ

(granddaughter of Fred Phelps, Westboro Baptist Church.  She left the church four years ago):  “They think that they are the only ones who are going to heaven and if you don’t go to that church you’re going to hell.  There was a point when we started praying for people to die.  I didn’t actually do that but I was around when they did it.”

SINGER CISSY HOUSTON

(about getting an invitation to Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party where he was going to have a tribute to her daughter, Whitney):  “[It’s] the most obscene thing. I don’t know why they would want me to come to the party in which she died, you know? Unheard of.”
