Less Than Zero Tolerance – Bret Easton Ellis Banned by GLAAD

from The Hollywood Reporter

Bret Easton Ellis: ‘I’ve Been Banned by GLAAD Media Awards’

by Seth Abramovitch

UPDATED: GLAAD responds to the author’s claims that he was told he couldn’t come to the swanky event honoring Bill Clinton.

There will be stars galore on Saturday evening at the Los Angeles GLAAD Media Awards, a swanky Hollywood event attended by 5,000 guests where PresidentBill Clinton will receive the Advocate for Change Award — but Bret Easton Elliswill not be among them.

The novelist and provocateur took to his medium of choice — Twitter — to announce that the gay rights organization had “banned” him from entering the premises after learning a guest planned on bringing him as a date.

“As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married I’m sad to hear I’ve been banned byGLAAD from attending tomorrow’s event,” the American Psycho author wrote. “GLAAD is supposedly ‘furious’ about my tweets. And I’m guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or how sexy I think Adam Driver is.”
