The host also called AIDS a gay disease and it was enough for him to be sacked from his job on the radio. But he still does not change his opinion about it. Hannity is a host on right-wing news network Fox News, he is a supporter of the current POTUS Donald Trump and is believed to be rather close to him. However, Washington Post recently revealed the homophobic remarks he used to make some time ago that cost him his job. “Anyone listening to this show that believes homosexuality is just a normal lifestyle has been brainwashed… these disgusting people,” he then said, agreeing with his show guest (an anti-gay activist) that gay people were to blame for spreading AIDS.Hannity added: “What is the cover-up all about that the media is hiding from the general public? Contrary to what we hear in the general media, you can get AIDS from saliva, from tears… they won’t let you say it’s a gay disease.” Jody May-Chang, a lesbian host for the same station, called up to complain, but Hannity and his guest mocked her. She believes it was right to fire the host for such offensive and abhorrent comments on air. Hannity was dismissed but the American Civil Liberties Union took his side saying that his right for the free speech had been violated. Despite the rocky start to his media career, Hannity quickly became a right-wing talk radio staple with a following, before making the jump to TV, were, as far as we know, he still promotes his anti-gay views. .
