Joy Reid Keeps Changing Her Story About Her Anti-Gay Blog Posts

Joy Reid Keeps Changing Her Story About Her Anti-Gay Blog Posts

During this most recent scandal, Reid had blamed hackers for getting into her old blog and changing the words. "For that, I am truly, truly sorry".

"Many of you have seen these blog posts circulating online and on social media". Many of them are homophobic and discriminatory and hateful.

"I hope that whoever corrupted the site recognizes the pain they have caused, not just to me, but to my family and communities that I care deeply about", she said. "Frankly, I couldn't imagine where they'd come from or whose voice that was". "I can state unequivocally", she wrote, that the resurfaced posts do "not represent the original entries".

"I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things because they are completely alien to me", said Reid on AM Joy. "I have not been exempt from being cruel or hurtful to the very people I want to advocate for". "I own that. I did it".

"I apologize to my friends and I want to apologize to the trans community and to Anne".

Nashville Predators fall to Winnipeg Jets 4-1 at Bridgestone Arena
Not only did they get 20 shots at Connor Hellebuyck , they outhit Winnipeg 17-9 and won 73 per cent of the face-offs. Rinne lasted two periods, ceding three goals on 16 shots, before Laviolette opted for backup Juuse Saros .


A review of an archived version of the blog through the Library of Congress casts serious doubt on whether that material was indeed fraudulent, at least assuming that the archived version was itself not hacked, and Reid's team says it is not claiming that. On Wednesday night, her lawyer confirmed the FBI was investigating "potential criminal activities surrounding several online accounts" belonging to Reid.

In addition to her on-air apology, Reid welcomed frequent AM Joy guest Jonathan Capehart, who expressed his disappointment before praising her as "someone that stands by me personally, stands by me and my husband, stands by me and my community". In December, the same account shared posts in which Reid taunted Charlie Crist, the Democratic former Florida governor, as a closeted gay man whose heterosexual marriage was a political front. The blog also included posts degrading lesbians, condemning gay sex, promoting offensive gay stereotypes and how Reid couldn't watch Brokeback Mountain.

Reid didn't address whether the FBI was investigating whether her old blog was hacked.

In a statement released Tuesday, PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) announced they have chose to rescind the Straight for Equality in Media award they had planned to give the MSNBC host.

"I looked back on some of the ways I've talked casually about sexual gender and orientation and I wonder who that even was".

Reports of illness from E. coli contaminated romaine lettuce hits Sacramento Co
Montana and New Jersey each informed the CDC that they had seven cases, while Alaska and Arizona identified five instances. The recall also affects "grab and go" salads sold at Kroger, Giant Eagle, Ingles Markets and Marsh grocery stores.


"I like to think I've gotten better as a person over time, that I'm still growing, that I'm not the same person that I was 10 or five or even one year ago", Reid said.

Update: Glad to see I'm not the only person thinking this apology didn't really address the main problem with what happened this week.

"Adult gay men tend to be attracted to very young, post-pubescent types", she wrote in another. "We deserve the room to grow beyond our past".

An independent cybersecurity expert interviewed by TheDCNF called Reid's hacking claims "incredulous" and said it was unlikely she was telling the truth. Crist accepted her apology.
