Reba McEntire is a cunt.

She and Blake Shelton make Brokeback joke about Jake Gyllenhaal at awards show; crowd of hillbillies roar with laughter. Stay tuned for her wide-eyed, earnest appearances on the talk shows later this week. "I swear I didn't mean nutthin' by it, y'all! I have friends that are gay, for real!" Pure trash.

Reba was one of GW Bushs biggest campaign supporters and fundraiser for the Republican party.

Almost all Country Music people are active political supporters of the Republican Party and American, but Reba went the extra mile and went on the bus tour with GW.

Also, as an out gay, I've met and performed with Reba several times. Her niece and I are in a choir together and are both part of the touring choir of 15 people. Reba has invited us to concerts when she's in the area, and she's performed at ours, and every single time I've seen her she asks about my partner and how things are going with us, etc. If she's a homophobic cunt, she sure hides it well to little people like me who make absolutely no difference in her life one way or the other. She has no reason to try and impress me and she's genuinely nice and treats me with respect and dignity.

Reba obviously rehearsed the material beforehand and approved the content. She set the joke up and did the hokey follow-up "moving right along..." a.k.a. "we're gonna make the gays mad!" Also, she's the one with an inexplicable gay following.

Jake Gyllenhaal is gay and lies like a Evangelical Preacher.

Just as black jokes and Jewish jokes are best left to black and Jewish comedians, gay jokes are best left to gays and a certain type of unimpeachably gay-friendly lady. Reba, determinedly sassy and beloved on Broadway though she may be, is not that lady.

If your fan base is primarily composed of the class of person who use the American flag for decorative purposes, then you should not touch gay tweaking jokes with a barge poll -- unless you want to look like you're playing up to bigots for laughs.

I doubt Reba McEntire is homophobic on a personal level, but top 40 country fans would not, by and large, represent America at its most enlightened. Reba should be smart enough to know this.

I do agree, however, that the bulk of the anger over this attempted bit of comedy patter (I refuse to term something so fundamentally unfunny a "joke") should be directed at Blake Shelton (whoever he may be).

With all the rumors about Joe Jonas, and Taylor Lautner, their names never come up. The comments were written as part of the script, they were rehearsed, and they were delivered.

Wait a sec, didn't Blake Shelton just say what y'all have been saying all this time?

by Anonymousreply 10204/06/2011

Blake Shelton and girl friend Miranda Lambert were the stars of the show.%0D %0D %0D Apparently, women now rule country music. Carrie Underwood was Entertainer of the Year last year and Taylor Swift now has the title. There was a time when women in country music were hardly recognized.

What other homophobic comments has Blake Shelton made, R105?

by Anonymousreply 10804/07/2011

Why split hairs. As someone mentioned upthread, Blake Shelton may have said the words, but this was in the script, he didn't blurt it out, and Reba knew it, and they rehearsed it, and no one said take it out, it's wrong and it's not even funny, and it makes us look stupid. %0D %0D Admittedly, Blake clearly thought it was cool, and wouldn't know stupid if it bit him in the ass, so yes, you could say they're both equally responsible. %0D %0D Reba is probably the most influential of the two, so I guess I'm reverting to my Granny's old philosophy "She's older and should have known better!" %0D %0D Of course, it was loudly applauded and was the quotable comment of the night, so Blake and Reba probably think everything is just fine...and in their world it probably is. %0D %0D If you want to address Blake Shelton, he can be found on NBC's new show, The Voice where he is the host.

by Anonymousreply 10904/07/2011

R109 so you are saying someone who is just standing beside someone who makes an offense joke is equally responsible, even if they said nothing?

So in your logic on The View Joy Behar who sits at the same table as Elisabeth Hasselbeck is just as responsible for all the right-wing rhetoric she spouts?

Or what about a talk show host who invites an anti-gay politician to their show. Is the host anti-gay as well, because they are on a show that bares the hosts name?

Why not start right at the top? The ACM show is produced by Dick Clark productions and he is executive producer.

Why not call him a cunt, since it is he who runs the whole show. Plus where is the blame for the writer who 'wrote' the joke? Where is the blame for him in this?

by Anonymousreply 11104/07/2011

Dave Boone (Brad Garrett's writing partner) is the one who writes the opening monologue of jokes.

So why don't we direct some of the 'cuntness' towards the person who actually wrote the joke!

by Anonymousreply 11204/07/2011

CBS approved the joke

Dick Clark was behind the joke

Dave Boone wrote the joke

Blake Shelton said the joke

And Reba who had nothing to do with the joke is being called a cunt?

by Anonymousreply 11304/07/2011

If CBS president Les Moonves recruited Dick Clark, Dave Boone, and Blake Shelton to storm into a PFLAG meeting, rape and murder every single attendee -- men, women, the young and old, the healthy and infirm -- then burn the building to the ground, while shooting Teflon bullets at the firefighters trying to save the building and the victims' remains; while also ordering all CBS programming preempted by an anti-gay manifesto on a loop to inform the country that this one PFLAG meeting was only the first stop on their reign of terror and mayhem...

...while, at the same time, Reba McEntire, inexplicably gifted with the ability to control time and space, transported herself back to Laramie, Wyoming, in October, 1998, to pull Matthew Shepard off that fence, swoop him up into her arms, and soared through the air with him like Supergirl to the nearest hospital, saving his life and bringing tears of joy and relief to millions of people across the country and world, and setting off a chain of events that led to the worldwide acceptance of LGBT people and the institution of equal rights and gay marriage in every country in the world...

...even then, with all the pain and suffering caused by Les and his crew, and the happiness and freedom Reba brought to the world...

...Reba would still be a cunt for not cutting that joke in rehearsal.

by Anonymousreply 11404/07/2011

Reba has weight and standing. If she heard that joke in rehearsal, and said, "No way. I won't participate. Your on your own if you do this." And walked off the stage, even if just for the two minutes or however long it took. Because by participating, including setting up the joke, she is culpable. She was not "just standiung there." She was a co-equal participant. She shares the shame and the blame. She was no innocent bystander. And yes, if you like get in touch with les Moonves, and Boone and Dick Clark and whom ever, because this was a shabby display of ignorance. Unacceptable.

Brokeback mountain jokes were everywhere for quite awhile after the movie came out. Straight guys loved to make uncomfortable jokes about it, including DL faves. This is notable why, OP?

by Anonymousreply 13104/10/2011

I'm not OP, but I find it notable that someone made a joke about it, on national TV, and got a really good reception with the audience applauding wildly....six years after the fact.%0D %0D %0D You know perfectly well, some people use "Brokback Mountain" because they want to get their point across, without coming right out and saying what they really want to say. This lets the right people know how they feel.%0D %0D This way they can be derising, mocking, and insulting and people will say, oh it was a joke. They meant no harm. I'm not a shrink. I don't know what people "meant," I only know what people do.%0D %0D If people are comfortable being derided, mocked and insulted, then, hey, no problem. it seems that Brokeback Mountain and it's variations, are words/phrases that can be used to mock and deride gay people with out ever coming out and ridiculing us.

Reba sent her band to fly in horrible conditions - ahead of her, she didn't leave at the same time, and the plane crashed killing them. She used this as springboard to fame. That's the ONLY REASON she's famous now. It was on the news and she exploited it endlessly. The next thing you know she's invited to perform at the Oscars and stupid, stupid Hollywood embraced this corn prone hillbilly. The rest has been our loss. She is fugly, can't help but strangle musical notes and she thinks she is an actress (!)- as if!!

Reba did organize a memorial service for the Band that perished in the crash. She flew in the families to Nashville and put them up in nice hotels at her expense.

She also organized a tribute concert starring herself and other artists. Proceeds from that concert were put into a trust and divided equally among the families.

So it is not like she did nothing.

REBA is a legend. She was just inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame:%0D %0D %0D "Two groundbreaking artists from Oklahoma and a songwriter with top hits in five decades were welcomed into the Country Music Hall of Fame in a two-and-a-half hour Medallion Ceremony on May 22, 2011.%0D %0D %0D Bobby Braddock, Reba McEntire and Jean Shepard listened as an all-star lineup of talent, including several fellow Hall of Famers, took the stage to pay tribute by performing songs associated with the inductees. Each new Hall of Fame member responded with emotional speeches thanking family members and those who were important to their careers.%0D %0D %0D "Oh my God, this has been a night of surprises," McEntire said after accepting her Hall of Fame medallion from Dolly Parton, who gave the redhead's induction speech-one of the surprises for McEntire.%0D %0D %0D Braddock, known for his humor in songs and conversation, added, "As I look out here and see my beloved family and close friends, leaders in the music community, and people who have been singing my songs and singing my praises, it's like getting to go to your own funeral without having to die. How awesome is that?"%0D %0D %0D Shepard, after accepting her medallion from longtime friend George Jones, quipped, with characteristic salty wit, "Thanks for showing up George," a reference to the legendary singer's nickname of "No Show Jones," given to him during rougher periods of his life when he occasionally missed scheduled concert appearances. She then illustrated other characteristics of her personality by bluntly discussing the challenges she faced early in her career, when she broke ground as one of the first female country music stars-"back when there were none of us," as she put it. Shepard made an impassioned plea for the CMA to induct more veterans like herself who haven't yet received the honor of Hall of Fame membership.%0D %0D %0D For the new inductees, the "surprises" included many unannounced performances and appearances by fellow artists. Participants in the program included Bill Anderson, Garth Brooks, guitarist Jimmy Capps, Kelly Clarkson, Elizabeth Cook, Billy Currington, Doug Green (Ranger Doug of western quartet Riders in the Sky), Vince Gill, George Jones, Millie Kirkham, Miranda Lambert, Tracy Lawrence, Martina McBride, Charlie McCoy, the McCrary Sisters, Susie McEntire Eaton, Dolly Parton, Blake Shelton and Trisha Yearwood.%0D %0D %0D Anderson, Gill, Jones, McCoy and Parton are also members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Other Hall of Fame members who attended to welcome the new members to the fold were Harold Bradley, Ralph Emery, Jim Foglesong, Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers, Sonny James, Brenda Lee, Barbara Mandrell, Billy Sherrill, Gordon Stoker, Ray Walker and Curtis Young of the Jordanaires, Jo Walker-Meador and Bud Wendell.%0D %0D %0D Considered country music's most prestigious event, the Medallion Ceremony represents the official induction of new Hall of Fame members. After a two-hour cocktail reception in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's Conservatory, the ceremony moved inside the Museum's intimate Ford Theater. Gill, president of the Museum's board of officers and trustees, opened with a performance of the gospel standard "Down by the Riverside," with stirring harmonies and tambourine accompaniment provided by the McCrary Sisters."
