Villain of the Week: Victoria Jackson

What's your damage, Victoria?

Villain of the Week: Victoria Jackson

If you're my age (26) then you probably don't know who she is, but Victoria Jackson has come out of her food hole to spread homophobia on Showbiz Tonight. I, like you, are asking "Why should I give a @#$% what Victoria Jackson thinks?"

We shouldn't care, of course, yet the Internet is abuzz with this story.

Tuesday she took to Showbiz Today to complain about the much-jizzed-about boy-on-boy kiss in Glee, and continued on with more crazy, grandiose bigotry. Ya know, the usual. Hey, I don't like Glee either but your going overboard bitch. Watch for yourself:

First of all: Very timely, Showbiz Tonight. Dig up the dead and bury the living. It turns out it was good ratings bait after all, and I did enjoy how they cut her off as she was saying she had "many gay friends."

Second of all: Isn't it amazing how these ghosts of Hollywood appear out of nowhere, at the exact moment of who cares? A column? Who reads that?

And most important at all, if your watching Glee at all, in any capacity, you're already gay!

I feel icky giving her any attention at all. She's a moron. I will say, every time I caught a glimpse of her I sort of instinctively thought she was funny and good humored. SNL is a fairly liberal show, as well. The thought of checking her out would skitter quickly across my mind. Well that is no more. Hate comes in all sorts of packages, don't forget it.
