GLAAD Rallies Against O'Reilly

GLAAD Rallies Against O'Reilly


The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is urging people to reach out to Fox News in response to host Bill O'Reilly's statement on Wednesday night's show about a gay-themed McDonald's commercial in France.

As reported earlier, O'Reilly aired the commercial, which is part of a "come as you are" ad campaign in France. It features a gay son keeping his sexuality hidden from his father. After showing the spot, O'Reilly turned to Fox anchor Jane Skinner, who was a guest on the show, and asked whether the fast-food chain would also have an al-Qaeda ad.

GLAAD is asking for at least 500 people to sign a petition, available on, as well as contact Fox executives directly. The petition asks for an apology from Fox News and O'Reilly, and that the network "put a stop to homophobia on its airwaves."
