Joy Reid

Leftwing media outlet The Daily Beast suspended homophobic journalist Joy Reid after new anti-gay posts surfaced online. The Daily Beast lost confidence in the embattled host of MSNBC's "AM Joy" after she alleged someone hacked her old blog and posted anti-gay content.

In the newly found posts Reid said all gay men are potential child molesters. And most heterosexuals "cringe" at the sight of 2 gay men kissing.

She also said you might be gay if you have an Anderson Cooper haircut.

A prominent gay rights group withdrew an invitation and rescinded an award Reid was scheduled to accept next month.

“We’re going to hit pause on Reid’s columns,” wrote Daily Beast executive editor Noah Shachtman in an internal email. “As you’re well aware, support for LGBTQ rights and respect for human dignity are core to Daily Beast. So we’re taking seriously the new allegations that one of our columnists, Joy Reid, previously wrote homophobic blog posts during her stint as a radio host.”

Shachtman added, “We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we wish we hadn’t done. We deserve the room to grow beyond our past. But these allegations are serious enough that they deserve a full examination.”

Reid previously apologized for anti-gay posts she wrote on her now shuttered blog, The Reid Report. But she denied authoring the new posts. Through her lawyer, she alleged that her blog was hacked.

Reid's lawyer announced the FBI is investigating the alleged hacking. But Reid's blog posts - with its anti-gay content - were archived in the The Library of Congress in 2006 - before the alleged hacking.

Reid wrote the posts in 2006 when bloggers had more freedom to express their opinions about homosexuals.

Far left NBC is standing by its host who didn't hide her disapproval of gays until Barack Obama began to push his gay agenda in 2012.

    God forbid you don't agree with the masses. Sheep society

  • Gloria

    Seems like such an extreme punishment.

    All for voicing her opinion on something over a decade ago?


  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I watch Joy and think she's a good interviewer. All this witch hunting of TV hosts and celebrities is going to cause us to have a glut of real talent. First Cosby, who's accusers appeared 40 YEARS AFTER THE INCIDENTS. Now Joy, who's posts were 10 years ago. I guess the same can be said about the President and the things he said and did 10-12 years ago. There needs to be a moratorium on all these outtings and accusations or a statute of limitations. If people went back to my youth and saw the dirty and stupid things I did, I guess I'd be in jail now.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I agree. She's also on MSNBC and I wonder if MSNBC will stick up for her. This is like the Melissa Perry situation. Speak or write your mind and you're fired.

  • vicci

    But barely suspend these buttery fingers on the trigger police officers. Liberals trying to take over media.

  • Jethro

    Fight!, Joy.

  • shelly

    Gay people run the entertainment business so this is the first step of her being completely silenced

  • Miss Thang

    It’s a wrap. No one deserves it more than her.

  • missarewa

    Everybody ain't gotta like what you do. Seems to me like a certain group of people don't want to accept this. You can't force everyone to approve of your lifestyle.

  • i troll it like i see it

    It was a time these kind of personal feelings towards a certain group of people was pillow talk with your partner, or discussed at home but now people have to put everything on line! If you hate gays, or Mexicans or whatever, why do you have to shout it from the rooftop? Hell, they might hate you too!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Gay is the new black.

  • Mints

    Shes not lying tho. The thought of two men kissing does makes me cringe.

  • Elevated Soul

    White liberals are "telling old girl to have several broken seats".

    Old girl missed the memo that she'll only be tolerated as long as she is a lock stepped puppet, for liberals. I find it hilarious that she's being suspended for now.....I bet they will have old girl begging for her job back.

    Funniest thing is that in 2007, she dogged Rosie O'Donnell while praising now President Trump, for his comedic skills against Mr. Rosie.

  • Logan Roberts

    I'm so sick of looking at Joy and that bad wig. Anyway, everybody know if you work for somebody else or plan on working for somebody, you can't always say what you want, even if it's true.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I really believe she is being set up.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I've never watched her show so I can't speak to her character but it seems that comments made ten years ago shouldn't cost you your job -- it's not like she's running for congress. I can definitely agree with any gay organization that might not want to honor her based on her past opinions though.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    She's a very good journalist, and I like her show on MSNBC. But right now we're seeing her career implode right before our eyes. I hope she can survive this.

  • Joy King

    It's sad to say but there's no money in being a police officer so they don't care. Lawsuits can be dragged on forever and tax payers end up responsible for the cost. The media is all about money. The LGBT has long money which yields a lot of power and influence.

  • Quitedeliteful

    The LGBT has long money which yields a lot of power and influence.
    Very true...

  • MsPam

    The moral of the story is don’t put how you really think on social media.

  • hi-liter

    As long as MSNBC still on board, she good.


    The moral of the story is she is trying to be team Democrat but being team Democrat you have to sell your soul to the white liberal “Hollywood “ agenda....
    That means you have to be pro Gay, pro homosexuality that is today’s Democratic Party. You have to say yes Gay sex is awesome .. even if you don’t. Believe it ? They own them... now. let’s watch her back track to try to keep that sad job as a so called journalist reporter... a vote for Democrats... ????????

  • hi-liter

    They are definitely digging things up on her, just like they do when they know the individual is influential in some way. She is all over that goon in the whitehouse and her guests on AM Joy takes this sorry administration to take EVERY Sunday morning.

  • classycns

    So isn't there a Award Winner movie about this entitled, Call Me By Your Name"? The lover interest is 17 yrs old but I guess because the backdrop is Italy so the age doesn't matter. I predict that a few gay people will admitted that they first love/sexual experience as a teen was with an adult. This is also a dirty little secret in the BC.

  • Logan Roberts

    *New Post* Two gay men spazzing out.

  • Miss Thang

    this is crazy talk. She is a dishonest person, so how can she be a good journalist? lmao i have to laugh in order to keep myself from crying.

  • Junkanoo

    Tough tits suck it up buttercup people will learn to keep their toxic opinions to themselves the hard way.

  • Ms.Devereaux


  • Junkanoo

    Social media really gets you to let your guard down but everything you do is there just waiting to be dug up .


    I have my personal suspicion of the motivation, of people going after Reid. theres a target on her back for beimg a black progressive woman in an elite media position.

  • Junkanoo

    Tv is a ratings game then the issue of adds will company's continue to pay for spots on her show . Why didn't she own what she said/wrote instead of trying to pretend it wasn't her thats shady

  • Gloria

    Gay will never be the new black. They have power and influence in this nation, something blacks can not possess within this Eurocentric nation.
    Black is still the most hated demographic group.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yeah... She definitely should have tried to get in front of the story...

  • Layah Jhene

    So she got suspended for gay comments Lol this world is truly wicked as hell. Straight Sodom and Gomorrah

  • Roderick2011

    Of course she's being set up.

    Whoever is doing it is dripping out the posts and keeping the story going.

  • Junkanoo

    You've hit upon something social media is still in its infancy so there's a major learning curve for some while others use common sense and save candid views for pillow talk or when sitting at the kitchen table. Am starting to realize you have to engage on social media like you would face to face online l can get more carried away and write stuff l wouldn't say face to face on some issues .

  • PlayerP

    This country's commander and chief has said far worse. I call balderdash.

  • Miss Thang

    This bish is not progressive. She’s a neoliberal.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I just think we have enough examples at this point for people to understand once you put something on your twitter or Facebook, etc. that its out in the open even if you have a private page, and people are free to share it and embarrass you, get you fired, shame you, etc... there have just been so many examples of folks going on apology tours for mess they said online for folks to still not get it.

  • Jussjess25

    The gay mafia aint no joke!

  • Faux Gibbler

    As they say it’s the cover up not the crime that gets you in trouble..
    Look, people’s views have evolved. Look at Obama. He didn’t support gay marriage when he first went in office.. all Joy had to say was that is how she felt then but doesn’t now.

  • MadGyalGem

    Good! She's been propped up for the longest. Meanwhile she's sucking on Hilary's teet. Oh well..... we should be upset at THAT.

  • Junkanoo

    Thats so true people usually never think it could happen to them. A lot of times we should see whats in plain sight but dont. This kind of reminds me of how we run out to vote during election time knowing were chosing the lesser of two evils the system needs real reform to actually work for the people.

  • Junkanoo

    l think this would be playing out differently for her had she gotten ahead of this. I guess if she weren't nominated for that award this may have been avoided.


    Bye bitch Bye ???


    she looks like a man

  • Roderick2011

    I think it's the right wing that's after her.

  • Miss Thang

    nope. it's progressives.

  • Roderick2011

    Sure. It's progressives who hate her enough to dig into posts that are over a decade old.

  • SandraRose

    Lol. But we're still talking about a porn star who allegedly slept with Trump 12 years ago.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    She said nothing wrong. I don't see the problem. We live in a society where being heterosexual is abnormal and to speak on homosexuality is a cardinal sin. There are more of them (gays) than it is us (heterosexuals) out there.

  • Miss Thang

    this is old news. The Reid Report's entire archive has been analyzed since 2016 election. Bernie Sanders supporters have been pointing out her hypocrisy. Mainstream news is always so late about everything.

  • Waya Hedia

    She is a beast.

  • Waya Hedia

    She's a lying, racist idiot

  • Candance

    So hacking is only a valid excuse for some people... it sounds reasonable to me. Is she at least suspended with pay? So are they still mad about the ones she said in 2006 or the "newer ones"? I swear someone starts making some noise in the industry, and then someone in the bushes cant wait to point out their imperfections to bring them down. No one remembers her writing that in 2006 or 2016. Someone fished it up and now its a big deal. She admitted she had an issue and she has grown into acceptance that sounds like a reasonable person. This world is mad crazy!

  • DragonSword Mccray

    It's in the scriptures.Yahwah said it is a abomination.

  • Roderick2011

    Trump brought the women who accused Bill of rape decades ago to one of Hillary's debates in 2016.

  • Roderick2011


  • jayhawkpride

    The Gay Mafia is real!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • fRAktal Reality

    "We live in a society where being heterosexual is abnormal and to speak on homosexuality is a cardinal sin." <---Thanks to Caucasian hegemony and its criminal/homicidal/genocidal culture.

  • James Hudson

    Joy was FRAMED.

  • Miss Thang

    Just one of many.

  • Miss Thang
  • Roderick2011

    You said Bernie supporters were behind the blog posts .

    This is the National Review.

    Try again.

  • Jethro
  • MsPam

    Joy was apologizing this morning for her remarks, girl we know you don’t like gay people! ????

  • Miss Thang

    That’s what I sent you because he’s a Bernie supporter. Lol did you even watch the video?

  • Miss Thang

    That’s the Rational National. Where are you seeing National Review? Lol

  • Roderick2011

    He could claim to be the Avon Lady but that wouldn't make it so.

  • Miss Thang

  • The Last Word

    Yes - because Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130k to keep quiet, a blatant criminal violation of FEC regulations.

    Trump initially denied any knowledge of negotiations with Daniels but has since admiited Cohen represented him in the matter.
