Is Any Publicity Really Good Publicity? Adam Lambert v. Uganda

After Adam Lambert’s performance on the American Music Awards resulted in people screaming about gay kisses all over the internet and thousands of calls complaining to the network, ABC canceled two scheduled appearances bythe performer . Since then, activists far and wide have called out ABC for its discrimination against Lambert. Then the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (“GLAAD”) stepped in.

At first, ABC remained mum on why Adam’s appearances were canceled, but after questions became louder, they responded that Adam wasn’t axed because of his sexual orientation, but because he can’t stick to a script.
