GLAAD Opposes Fox News Staffers Attending Its Events

Fox News employees have been served notice: Stay away from GLAAD events. According to Media MattersKimberly Guilfoyle and Jamie Colby — two Fox News hosts — went to GLAAD’s latest media award ceremony. The duo’s attendance did not sit well with GLAAD.

The organization’s vice president of communications, Rich Ferraro, issued the following statement:

If Kimberly and Jamie expect to attend future GLAAD events, they will first need to sit down with us to discuss Fox News’ embarrassing, biased and misinformed coverage of LGBT issues. The invitation is open. Fox News’s track record on LGBT issues is abysmal, and it makes no sense to me why any LGBT people or allies would want to be a part of that.

Damn.

Only question we have: If this talk does happen, can we be there too?
