She quoted an anonymous fighter fighter in the article, so Dana called him 'a pussy' and 'a faggot' for being anonymous

GLAAD's statement:

The video has been removed from youtube. But what it comes down to is that if you are a CEO of a billion dollar company you can't call women bitches or anyone faggots.
I thought that might hit some nerves. f@ggot is a pretty offensive word to use by the CEO of a company. Unless he's talking about bundling twigs
Some may feel more comfortable about the usage of this word, but personally I don't like it. Probably because I've been around the theatre community for so long and have very close friends who are *GASP* Homosexual.

I wonder if he'll have to go through sensitivity training or do a duet with Elton John!!!
