It has now finally been revealed, by The Potato, why RTE paid six people a combined sum of €85,000. It has nothing to do with the ‘Panti’ controversy, as many speculated, but in fact RTE has hired a crew, headed by non-homophobe John Waters, to acts as commentators for the Winter Olympic Games which are starting today.
RTE bosses have paid the substantial sum to the team of non-homophobes to cover the 22nd Winter Olympic Games held in Sochi, Russia.
Many people were convinced that RTE acted cowardly and went against the right to free speech by paying out ‘hush money’ to six individuals who disagreed with statements made by gay activist Rory ‘Panti’ O’Neill, but it turns out that the money was for another reason.
The team is led by John Waters (58), who is not homophobic, and is a journalist for the Irish Times. He writes a weekly opinion column on Fridays. His ability to comment on society made him an excellent choice to head to Sochi.
Waters, who has attempted to enter the Eurovision Song contest three times, is not to be confused with the openly gay American cult director of the same name.
“John Waters is a gay man who has had homosexual sex numerous times” said a source in reference to the American director.
“John Waters enjoys giving fellatio”, he added.
Joining John, are Breda O’Brien, another Irish Times journalist and not a homophobe, David Quinn, Founder of the non-homophobic institute IONA as well as three other non-homophobic members of IONA.
RTE were initially sending Derek Mooney, but being ‘a gay’ they felt wouldn’t work. “Just because we don’t believe homosexuals should be treated equally, doesn’t make us homophobic” a source told us.
