Wrestler star Mickey Rourke is not making many friends in the gay community, refusing to apologise after calling a journalist a “faggot” last year.
According to The Advocate online, the slur was captured on video and shows an obviously drunk Rourke having a go at a journalist for a story suggesting Rourke was dating actress and Wrestler co-star Evan Rachel Wood.
“She’s a good friend, that’s it. And tell that f—ot who wrote all that s— in the paper I’d like to break his f—ing legs,” Rourke said.
Rourke has since refused to apologise, saying he has many gay friends.
“I have more gay friends than any 50 straight people I know, so I don’t really give a s—,” he said.
“I meant what I said,” UK newspaper The Sun reported.
