Joy Reid Once Apologized For Homophobic Comments
This has been a big story all week. MSNBC’s Joy Reid allegedly published homophobic blog posts a while back, and she’s claiming that she didn’t write the old posts and that her now defunct blog was hacked.
But this article takes things to a new level. This is about an apology Reid made before these allegedly hacked posts started to surface.
Joy Reid, host of the weekend MSNBC show “AM Joy,” apologized more than four months ago for homophobic comments she admitted to making on her blog in the mid-2000s.
And then there’s this…
Reid did not specify which posts she believed were fraudulent or which offensive comments she allegedly didn’t write. She offered no explanation for why she apologized for homophobic comments in December yet now claims a nefarious person must have hacked her.

If you do a simple search you’ll find a lot more about this one. I also found this…
In one post Reid allegedly wrote she didn’t go see “Brokeback Mountain” because “I didn’t want to watch the two male characters having sex.”
I followed a lot of publishing blogs back then, but I never followed Reid’s blog so I can’t comment. What’s interesting is that every blog I ever followed that shuttered was never deleted. I used to follow Miss Snark on Google, daily, and that blog is still up. And if I were to shutter this blog, I wouldn’t delete it. I’d just leave it up indefinitely. Most bloggers who stop blogging don’t delete the entire blog. Besides, it’s pretty much impossible to hide content anywhere on the internet. I hope we hear more about this…one way or the other.
With all that said, as a blogger with over one million hits who’s been around for almost ten years now, I don’t think I’ve ever written a post that I would be ashamed of. However, I have written a few posts that I probably wouldn’t write today. And that’s because like everyone else I sometimes evolve on certain issues and I feel differently about them as time moves on. Bloggers are allowed to do that, too.
