Susan Sarandon Takes GLAAD to Task

Susan Sarandon Takes GLAAD to Task


Susan Sarandon says she doesn't understand why the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation took issue with the use of the word "tra**y" in Glee's recent Rocky Horror Picture Show tribute.

"What should they have said?" the actress asked the New York Post, saying that she has plenty of friends who proudly consider themselves to be "tra**ies." She said GLAAD is "getting like PETA -- way out of control."

GLAAD spokesman Richard Ferraro issued a statement in response to Sarandon's comments: "The word 'tra**y' has become an easy punch line in popular culture and many still don't realize that using the term is hurtful, dehumanizing and associated with violence."
