DUMPED: TNT has dropped Lenny and Lodi from World Championship Wrestling after receiving a scorching letter from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which complained that the characters incite the crowd to the most base homophobic behavior. Lenny wore pigtails and body glitter; Lodi was introduced to crowds as Lenny's gay wrestling partner.
Ultimately, TNT deserves applause for making the right decision, but it's unfortunate they didn't think this through before those characters made it to air, says GLAAD's Scott Seomin. Never in 15 years have we seen a more literal encouragement of gay bashing in entertainment.
TNT had no comment. BACK
