Grammys 2010: GLAAD not happy about Buju

As if it wasn't bad enough for Buju Banton, still in a Florida jail on drugs charges, he's continuing to be the focus of protests over his homophobia. Seemingly unimpressed by Banton's awkward 'standing near some gay people' photo op from last year, GLAAD have taken out ads complaining about his nomination for the Grammy Awards:

In an advert in Hollywood show business paper Daily Variety, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center urged Grammy organizers to use Sunday's televised ceremony to denounce music "that promotes or celebrates violence against any group of people."

Interestingly, GLAAD don't seem at all bothered about the victimisation of polka music fans. Selective consciences.
