John Mayer gave an apology on both Twitter and on stage for dropping the N-bomb in his Playboy interview, but GLAAD would like to see another of the singer’s other poor word choices be acknowledged as well. Along with describing his white supremacist genitalia and Jessica Simpson‘s “sexual napalm,” Mayer let a bad word slide when he recalled a tongue bath he once gave to Perez Hilton. “It was New YearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Eve and I decided to go out and destroy myself…I remember seeing Perez Hilton flitting about this club and acting as though he had just invented homosexuality. All of a sudden I thought, I can outgay this guy right now. I grabbed him and gave him the dirtiest, tongue-iest kiss I have ever put on anybody—almost as if I hated f–s…I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think my mouth was even touching when I was tongue kissing him, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how disgusting this kiss was. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a little ashamed.” Just a little?
GLAAD responded to his anecdote on their blog. “Just as Mayer indicated in his apology, that he meant no offense in his use of the racist slur, we hope the intent behind his use of the F-word was not malicious. As a public figure with millions of fans, Mayer should be more cognizant of the impact his casual use of both slurs can have…As a talented musician who has made comments supportive of the LGBT community in the past, we expect more from John Mayer and ask that he apologize.Ã¢â‚¬Â John hasn’t tweeted since Wednesday’s mea culpas…will he come back to acknowledge everyone else he pissed off?
