This totally figures. Remember last week when actor Rupert Everett who everyone remembers from "My Best Friends Wedding" said he didn't think that gays adopting was such a great idea. Well you'd think that being an openly gay man himself would inoculate him from being savaged by leftists. But alas, it seems they're for gay rights but not necessarily the rights of gay men to say what they think.
Yeah, it's come to death threats. Money line: "All the queens out there now have it in for me."
The HuffPo reports:
Actor Rupert Everett is on the receiving end of hate mail and death threats after he criticized gay parenting, saying, "There's nothing worse than being brought up by two gay dads."
Everett, a 53-year-old gay man, said that his recent comments on gay parenting have made him a marked man. "I've now had all this hate mail and there have been death threats, too," Everett told the Telegraph. "All the queens out there now have it in for me. I'm loathed by them. I'm having to take evasive action."
Death threats aimed at the "My Best Friend's Wedding" actor, who is now appearing in Sir David Hare's play "The Judas Kiss," came after he criticized gay parents during an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine.
"[Mom] thinks children need a father and a mother and I agree with her," he told the magazine. "I can't think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads... Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That's just my opinion," he said earlier this month.
