MSBNC crank Joy Reid claims her recently discovered homophobic posts were fabricated by internet hackers.
And my dog ate my homework.
The hateful posts were recently discovered on her website “The Reid Report” before she became a host on far left MSNBC.
Twitter user Jamie_Maz tweeted:
Thread – 1/x Joy Reid's homophobic blog posts were far worse than 1st reported.
They also had nothing to do with Republican hypocrisy on gay marriage. Joy also opposed gay marriage at the time. She gleefully accused people of being gay and posted a number of questionable things. pic.twitter.com/ZloivXczTS

Mediaite has obtained a series of homophobic posts from Joy Ann Reid’s old blog that she denies were actually written by her.
In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog.”
While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic contenton a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.”
These anti-gay articles from The Reid Report, a site that pre-dated Reid’s former MSNBC show of the same name, were originally shared on Twitter by user Jamie_Maz who found them using the Wayback Machine — an Internet archiving service that takes periodic screenshots of popular web pages to preserve them.
MSNBC’s Reid attacked GOP Whip Steve Scalise after he was shot by a raging Democrat last year on an Alexandria ballfield.
UPDATE: Joy Reid lied.
Joy Reid said hackers put the content on her website but a look back on The Wayback Machine shows the original text included the controversial anti-gay screed.
TGP reader John sent this in:
Joy’s old blog was removed waybackmachine, but they didnt remove the xml feed for her blog which contains the original text of her blog posts here by clicking on different dates
The original text for the “Or, what about the totally not gay celebrities of the year” mentioned in your article is in this feed.
The phrase “Or, what about the totally not gay celebrities of the year” appears in the original text code.
The phrase appears on page 21 of the 30 page code.
This was from her December 31, 2006 saved page code.
