Bret Easton Ellis Defends His 'Glee' Tweet

The 'American Psycho' author was criticised last year...


Bret Easton Ellis has reignited debate over his controversial Glee tweet, saying it highlighted the “politically correct gay agenda.”

The 'American Psycho' author, who wrote the screenplay for Lindsay Lohan’s next project The Canyons, was criticised last year after saying the hit musical show was like “a puddle of HIV.”

Today, Bret posted several tweets which blasted late author David Foster Wallace for reportedly saying “AIDS is a blessing.”

He said: “David Foster Wallace writes ‘AIDS is a blessing, a gift perhaps bestowed by nature to restore some critical balance.’ This is the problem…”

“The source of Saint David Foster Wallace’s ‘AIDS is a blessing’ quote is from his new collection of posthumous essays. Total fraud and jerk.”

He then defended his comments last year, saying: “When I tweeted ‘Watching Glee is like stepping into a puddle of HIV’ I stole it from my HIV-positive friends. Gay Fascist Middlebrow=EVIL…

“The Gay Fascist Middlebrow that got angry over the Glee tweet is the problem with the politically correct gay agenda. We are all different.

“Why don’t well-meaning gay (and straight) people understand that gay people find it funny to deconstruct gay stereotypes and have a laugh?

“The funniest AIDS jokes I’ve heard are from HIV-positive gay men. Straight David Foster Wallace calling AIDS a ‘blessing’ is truly awful…”

Bret has previously defended Paris Hilton, who said that most men on gay networking app Grindr “probably have AIDS.”

Well, that cleared that one up then! What do you make of Bret’s tweets?
