Any guy who freaks out in the presence of a gay man has something to hide. In this post-Breakback era, celebrities should be media-savvy enough to know when to play it cool. Busta Rhymes stuck his foot out of the closet this weekend by throwing a fit when a gay guy dared to touch him on the shoulder:
The drama unfolded at the 11th Street Diner, which is next door to gay club Twist, early Sunday morning. “The restaurant was packed with transvestites, gay men and drag queens, which obviously made Busta a little edgy,” eyewitness Thomas Barker e-mails. “This became evident when a young gay guy came up behind Busta and tapped him on the shoulder to congratulate the rapper on his recent comeback. Before the guy could even mutter a word, Busta turned around and repeatedly screamed, ‘Why the [bleep] you touchin’ me, man? Get the [bleep] away from me’ . . . his two huge bodyguards then caused an even larger scene by pushing the kid away . . . Busta quietly whispered to his bodyguards, ‘I hate [bleeping] f*ggots, man.’ “
Busta also recently made the mistake of bragging about his lousy performance with Nicole Richie.
The guy needs to shut up and be nice if he wants a career. No one likes a homophobe. We don’t think it’s wise to screw and tell either, and hope Wilmer Valderrama’s career also tanks.
