Hilary Duff Bitches Out Girls Who Call Things “Gay” In New PSA

|

Hilary Duff has filmed a PSA for the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network that aims to fight anti-gay language by out-catting the hags who use it. In the clip, a girl in a clothing store tells her friend an outfit is totally gay. Duff interrupts to note that you “shouldn’t call something ‘gay’ when you mean something’s ‘bad.’” When the dowdily dressed homophobe fails to grasp the message, she explains what if every time something was bad, everybody said ‘that’s so girl wearing a skirt as a top’?” OH SNAP. Duff attempts to cushion the blow by complimenting her jeans (you can’t fight hate with hate, see), the closing text underlines the message. “When you say ‘that’s so gay,’ do you realize what you say? Knock it off.”

However odd it is to watch Hilary snap off on someone’s fashion, it’s an admirable sentiment that we hope is embellished further. Maybe Shia LaBeouf, as an apology to the LGB community, could tell a young dude not to use “cocksucker” as an insult, unless he wants his girlfriend—if he ever gets one—to think sucking his cock is a bad thing. Now that’s a public service announcement that’s long overdue.
