Mike Missanelli’s Alleged Homophobic E-mail Taunts (Updated)

Host for The Fanatic doesn’t look good in these selections.

[Update]  Deadspin now has now posted the other half of some of the emails that were allegedly exchanged between 97.5 The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli and a listener. They put Missanelli’s comments in a slightly different light. Missanelli has neither confirmed nor denied that the emails are from him, though in the tweet below he suggests there is, indeed, more to the story:

I’m sure your radio bosses love that their host expresses bigotry and tosses around gay slurs. Hahaha. You’re lucky that I dont care enough to get you fired and am too busy with other things. I NEVER listen to your show, btw.

And if you dont think that abnormal behavior is someone who listens four hours a day to a guy he suppoedly loathes and then wastes more time sending abusive emails under fake names, then more power to you. I would first deal with your latent homosexuality problem.

Let’s see. I called you an unmarried 60 year old who lives alone and hangs on to the same girlfriend. Tell me what I am incorrect about. (Did you really just call me a homosexual three emails in a row? What is wrong with you? I could get you fired if I wanted. But you’re a nice enough guy that I wont.)

Hahaha. Bro, you have no idea about my life. That’s what’s really amusing. And yet, I know about your life based on you wasting four hours a day obsessing about my show and taking the time to make up fake names and send abuive e-mails. Hahaha. You are an obsessive, latent homosexual weird-o who fixes computers. Hahaha. So .

I dont even listen to your show. Your several homosexual insults indicate a great hatred towards the gay community. It might be time to open your eyes and stop being closed-minded.

Don’t hate gay people at all. Just think you should come out of the closet. You have an obsession with me.

Let me ask you. Why do you hate gay people? You know it’s the year 2013?

From: mikemiss@975thefanatic.com
To: [redacted]

Dude, you are without question a latent homosexual. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. You have an obsession with me. I just think you need to deal with it.

[Original] Deadspin offers emails, purportedly from 97.5 The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli, stirring it up with a reader in homophobic fashion. “One of Mike’s listeners recently got into a drawn-out email fight with Missanelli, and the radio host did not come off as very swell guy. To be fair, we should point out that our tipster did not share his end of the exchange with us, but we assume he’s a huge asshole, too. ”

Hahaha. Yeah, you’re a total computer geek loser with absolutely NO female involvement. Anybody who wastes four hours of the day listening to my radio show and sending e-mail from fake names has a a big “L” tattooed on his forehead. Women probably avoid you like stink. (BTW, what are you gonna do today with me off? Jerkoff to one of my podcasts, you obsessive homosexual IT freak?)

Yeah, Sure. You’re whole life is a lie. Insecure people are usually like that. You are a 24 karat loser. And totally in denial because to take inventory of that would hurt you too much. You’re an obsessive weird-o and probably a closet homosexual.

Dude, your shit is boring. And if you dont think that abnormal behavior is someone who listens four hours a day to a guy he suppoedly loathes and then wastes more time sending abusive emails under fake names, then more power to you. I would first deal with your latent homosexuality problem.

And, a denial of homophobic intent:

Don’t hate gay people at all. Just think you should come out of the closet. You have an obsession with me.

There’s more along this same, tedious line of insulting. Again: We don’t have the other side of the story, but, you know: Ick.
