    Novelist Bret Easton Ellis isn't too glad about tonight's GLAAD Awards.

    The writer revealed that the gay rights organization banned him from attending the event due to his past irreverent tweets.

    Bret shared via Twitter: "As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married I'm sad to hear I've been banned by GLAAD from attending tomorrow's event," he tweeted Friday, adding: "GLAAD is supposedly 'furious' about my tweets. And I'm guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or how sexy I think Adam Driver is."

    We're guessing it's the tweets about how watching Glee is like "stepping into a puddle of HIV" or how he agreed with Paris Hilton about gay men who use dating site Grindr being diseased. Or maybe it was the one where he wrote, "If you think Modern Family has a progressive attitude about gayness then you're a retrograde tool. The fact that it's being lauded: a joke."

    Bret took to Twitter again yesterday to add: "After GLAAD banned me they told the friend who was bringing me to the event to WARN "Bret not to go public or TWEET about this decision."

    Clearly, Bret disregarded that message. So what's GLAAD have to say about it all?

    GLAAD tells E! News: "GLAAD spoke with the guest who was planning to bring Bret about some of Bret's recent remarks, which the gay community responded negatively to. We also asked for a time to sit down with Bret. They decided to replace Bret with a different guest and there has been no response to the offer of a meeting. We hope his tweets don't overshadow the high-profile allies and everyday LGBT people who will be onstage tonight advocating for equality in the Boy Scouts, marriage and across the country."
