BBC sparks homophobic slur storm

The BBC was under fire last week from gay rights groups after homophobic slurs directed at actress Lindsay Lohan and her girlfriend, DJ Sam Ronson, went to air on Radio 5 Live.

During the program The Most Annoying People of 2008, a DJ commented on Lohan and Ronson’s relationship, insulting lesbians as munters, or unattractive.

Let the munters and mingers get each other. That’s cool because nobody wants them.

When they’re hot and fit -” Hollywood superstars -” they should be saved for the guys, the DJ said.

The BBC has refused to apologise, after receiving only 13 complaints, saying the comments were the opinions and views of the presenter, not the corporation, and were lighthearted.
