Published Jul 26, 2007The Game has been banned from any future interviews by the BBC following some remarks he made to Radio One DJ Jo Whiley.
While appearing on The Jo Whiley Show, the Compton rapper reportedly referred to gay men as "faggots" and "not real men."
As you can imagine, the complaints began flooding into the network. The BBC has chosen not to punish Whiley for her part in the interview, stating she made a "sincere, full and swift apology and distanced herself and the network from The Game's comments." They were also quick to acknowledge the Game's words as "very offensive, completely unacceptable and clearly homophobic."
Though a ban has been placed on interviewing the rapper, the BBC has admitted it will not place a ban on his music.
