Former Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker has been accused of slinging a gay slur at a New York antique shop owner.
The shop owner claims Parker threatened him and called him a “f*g.”
The official incident report reads:
“An argument ensued over something on consignment, and according to the store owner Ms. Parker stated to him, ‘Do you want to wake up tomorrow? I’ll make one phone call’ and additionally he was called a f*g. For now he requested the incident be recorded. He will call if he wants to take further action.”
The incident allegedly occurred in Saugerties, New York, on January 2. According to RadarOnline, the row reportedly started when Parker, 48, got angry that some purses she placed on consignment at the antiques shop were not priced higher.
For the time being, it is unknown whether the shop owner will pursue any further action against the actress.
Mary-Louise Parker isn’t the only celebrity to get in trouble for using gay slurs. Last September, Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar was suspended for three games without pay for writing a gay slur in his eyeblack. Escobar wrote, “Tu ere maricon,” which means “You are a f****t” in English. Escobar apologized for the slur and said he agreed with his suspension.
Another athlete who got in trouble for using the other f-word is New York Knicks center Amar’e Stoudemire. The incident occurred when a fan told Stoudemire that he “better come back a lot stronger and quicker to make up for this past season.” Stoudemire responded, “F*** you. I don’t have to do anything f****t.”
Stoudemire quickly apologized in a direct message, saying he had time to think about what he said and it wouldn’t happen again.
