John Mayer's 'Playboy' interview: Why does no one care that he also uses a gay slur?

John Mayer’s crazy controversial Playboy interview has already sparked outrage for his use of the N word and his comparison of Jessica Simpson to “sexual napalm.” But in the interview Mayer also uses the gay slur “f–s,” which seems to be yielding much less outrage. While discussing kissing Perez Hilton one night at a club, Mayer says, “I grabbed him and gave him the dirtiest, tongue-iest kiss I have ever put on anybody—almost as if I hated f–s.” Um, why has this not merited a twitter-pology? A spokesperson for Mayer told EW, “On Wednesday, JM apologized for his remarks via Twitter and again in public that night. His remorse is genuine and he has expressed sincere regret for all of his word choices.” Clearly this interview was meant to offend pretty much everyone, but I would still like an apology from Mayer on behalf of gays everywhere.
