Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has been the subject of unrelenting heat follwing his anti-gay remarks, which hit the web earlier this week.
Robertson was swiftly suspended from his hit A&E show because of the controversial comments he made to GQ regarding homosexuality.
"Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong. Sin becomes fine," Robertson told the mag. "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men...Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."
He continued, "It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."
But Robertson isn't the first celebrity to find himself at the center of an anti-gay controversy. Other stars have made homophobic remarks, too.
Here are 9 other famous anti-gay celeb scandals.
1. Isaiah Washington: Washington got heat in 2006 after reports surfaced claiming he directed the anti-gay slur "f----t" at Grey's Anatomy costar T. R. Knight, who is gay, during an onset argument. Although he later apologized, Washington was dropped from the hit show several months after the scandal.
2. Paris Hilton: The heiress was caught on tape in September 2012 calling all gay men "disgusting" and suggesting "most of them probably had AIDS." She swiftly apologized in a letter to GLAAD, writing, "I am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families. Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know." Too little, too late?
3. Chris Brown: In 2010, the controversy-prone singer went on a Twitter tirade attacking B2K rapper Raz, who previously admitted to being molested by another man. "@razb2k n---a you want attention!" Brown wrote. "Grow up n----a!!! Dick in da ass lil boy…Tell me this @razb2k!! Why when the money was coming in u won't complaining about getting butplugged! #homothug!!!"
4. Alec Baldwin: The temperamental actor used gay slurs to attack Daily Mail writer George Stark in the summer of 2013, tweeting, "I'm gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna f--k… you… up." Baldwin later added, "If put my foot up your f--king ass, George Stark, but I'm sure you'd dig it too much." Baldwin later apologized. A few months later, unfortunately, he was caught on video calling a paparazzo a "c--ksucker" (but denied dropping the homophobic type of f-bomb), resulting in further backlash that ultimately contributed to the cancellation of his MSNBC talk show.
5. Kirk Cameron: During an appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight last year, the religious actor blasted gay marriage and homosexuality in general, calling it "unnatural" and "destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization." "Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the Garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part," he argued. "So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don't think anyone else should, either. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't."
6. Bret Easton Ellis: The attention-loving American Psycho writer blasted Glee in 2011 with the offensive tweet, "I like the idea of Glee but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I've stepped into a puddle of HIV?"
7. Tracy Morgan: While performing a stand-up show in June 2011, the 30 Rock funnyman went on an anti-gay rant that outraged the audience, including Kevin Roger, who wrote on his Facebook page afterwards, "Tracy then said he didn't f--king care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a f---ing d--k up their a--... they can take a f---ing joke." Morgan later apologized.
8. Azealia Banks: After openly gay blogger Perez Hilton threw his support to Bank's Twitter feud enemy Angel Haze, Banks called Hilton out on Twitter, writing in January 2013, "@perezhilton lol what a messy f----t you are." Banks, who is bisexual, later offered a mea culpa, writing, "My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language. Not sorry for Perez tho. Lol."
9. 50 Cent: Azealia Banks isn't alone. The rapper also got into it with Perez back in 2010. "Perez hilton calld me douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. wasnt his but still made me feel better," 50 Cent wrote, following it up with the equally deplorable tweet, "If you a man and your over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol."
