Chris Cornell Breaks Up Argument After Hearing Homophobic Slur

    So how’s this for redemption? When we previously reported on Chris Cornell, he was throwing around the term “retard” like an ignorant high school student. But now he’s apparently the one who’s trying to stop stupid shit like that from being spread. According to the NY Post, Cornell broke up an argument in the Alaska Airlines lounge at Seattle Airport when he heard a homophobic slur used. The article states that he got involved when “a man in a business suit ‘called another man a queer when he overheard him make a pro-Obama statement.” Cornell then reportedly “slammed the guy for making anti-gay comments” and ended up being a hero-or-sorts. Huh. [TDS]
