Vanity Fair Sorry for Homophobic Term in 'Glee' Article


For allowing the use of the word 'f**s' in Brett Berk's latest 'Gay Guide to Glee' column, the fashion magazine apologize unreservedly to the U.S. TV hit.

Bosses at fashion magazine Vanity Fair have apologized for a gay slur written by one of their columnists in an article about U.S. TV hit "Glee". Gay writer Brett Berk, who writes for the magazine's website, came under fire for using the homophobic term 'f**s' while writing about a recent episode of the musical show, which features several homosexual characters.

Following a series of complaints from readers, editors at the magazine have now said sorry for the comments and insist they do not support Berk's use of the derogatory term. The statement reads, "With so many genuine homophobes stirring up trouble these days, the gay community doesn't need any agita from an ally like Vanityfair.com, so we are eager to set the record straight about the use of the word 'f**s' in Brett Berk's latest 'Gay Guide to Glee' column."

"Brett, who has repeatedly referred to himself as VF.com's 'fun and f**gy editor' (a title the editors have declined to endorse), writes from a humorous and explicitly gay perspective, and his invocation of this complicated word was meant to critique the notion that the gay characters of Glee should feel obliged to 'play straight' on stage. That said, we recognize that the column caused genuine offense to many readers, and we apologize unreservedly to them."
