One of Danny Gokey’s Cousin-By-Marriage doesn’t like gay people (mainly Adam Lambert)

June 17, 2009

Another reason why people should keep their Facebooks private.

When Scott MacIntyre was eliminated from Idol, some of Gokey’s family was in town. They joined the contestants in the customary Goodbye Dinner.

Gokey’s young female cousin, posted some photos. And a lot of the comments (and photos) have to do with one Adam Lambert.

I guess Lambert signed this photo of himself for one of them. And this girl posted it to her Facebook, along with other photos of the Goodbye Dinner. (There is more to that part of the story, which you can read about on the aforementioned link. If you haven’t already heard about it…just go there.)

Here is the said photo:

Adam Lambert is green!

Here are the accompanying Facebook comments. Please make note of Gokey’s-cousin-by-marriage, John Negron. This guy’s name jumped out at me immediately! Mr. Negron did his best to promote Gokey — and himself as Gokey’s Cousin — throughout his run on Idol. He even supplied the local Fox affiliate with personal family photos.

Since Negron likes being in the public eye so much, I guess he really won’t mind that his homophobic FB comments are now public. (I do believe he is also one of those “hot & annointed” Faith Builders, so hey, it comes with the territory, right?)

Spot the Douche in the Facebook comments thread

Douchey Facebook comments by John Negron

You can click on the images to make them bigger. But I’ll post them on here, too. It’s a shame, really, because I know there are members of Gokey’s family who would never even think to do, or say, such things. But its asshats like these hanger-ons who aren’t really doing much to help Gokey’s career, or his polarizing reputation.

Don't say such things on public Facebook accounts

Oh. And here are a few more. As are some other ignorant comments. Sadly, those outnumber the normal ACCEPTING ones.

Some of the Gokey family is not very niceSad, isn’t it? And seriously, John Negron. I know you are close with Danny because you were related to his deceased wife, but seriously, shut the frak up. You’re doing NOTHING to help this guy’s career when he hasn’t even inked a record deal with. Keep your homophobic nonsense to yourself.

Or at least post it someplace private.

    Those are Christians?
    To me Gokey is a fat sloppy person without talent who should have been kicked out right in the beginning.
    I pick Adam any day for his talent and personality and as for being gay, it’s none of my business. Period.
    When are people get it through their heads that gays have always excisted? Only now people talk about it

    Of course Gokey is guilty of being evil stop making excuses for him. It was Gokey who demanded Adam sign the stupid photo in front of a crowd. So what do they do after his kind gesture AND posing for photos with the little witch? Hateful and cruel to this sweet soul who never hurt anybody and has been nothing but supportive to his “fellow Idols”. Poor Adam after WORKING HIS ASS OFF for 17 years, gets to have a little taste of “fun” in the AI house like going to “college” that he missed out on…and he’s stuck with Gokeyisadouche to torture him for no reason.

    The Gifted Adam Lambert will prevail, Gokey will never be successful because IF he happens to snag some deal with some half baked label, we rabid Adam Lambert fans will let them know what we think of him.

    God BLESS Adam Lambert as he assents to Superstardom, a dangerous world that so many people before him had such difficulties adjusting to.

    I cannot believe the people who choose to waste their time “hating” Danny Gokey. First of all why? Do any of you know the whole story? It would be nice if Adam would address the story. Someone took something out of context and ran with it again. Danny is entitled to his “beliefs,” and Adam to his “life choices.” I think they both are fine with it. Isn’t it really just between Adam and Danny? If they are cool with everything shouldn’t we all be cool with it too? It’s been word of mouth, no proof that anything was wrong except for Danny’s cousin once removed. Danny had nothing to do with it. I wished everyone would mind their own business, or investigate the nastiness of Adam’s and other idol’s images. I think Danny would come out ahead. Please let Danny live the life path he has chosen. It’s a very admirable one. For all of you out there it would be nice if you were to choose a life of giving instead of wasting…

      It’s time to open your eyes and see Gokey for what he is. The video of Michael Sarver and Gokey is all over the place. On camera they stated where they come from gays stay in the closet or wind up dead. That’s not immature, that’s hate. They are well beyond making “stupid” comments, they are hateful people and deserve nothing but the worst!

    You know – I read that whole exchange – and something really jumped out…..Adam’s asking “Where did you get that picture?” He was obviously upset. I got the impression the picture was never intended to be public – which begs the question…..where did she obtain it? And who distributed it to the media? It obviously hadn’t been at that point. Adam was surprised to see it. Now – I may be off base here in my assumptions – but that really caught my eye and got me wondering.

    As for judging Danny by his relatives – I’m certainly not – wouldn’t dream of it; ‘cause I am SO not like anyone else in my family (and proud of it!). Matter of fact – I divorced those crazies long ago. My sister puts the repugnant in Republican, my brother’s a complete psycho and mom slept with Prince Valium every night of her unhappy life (The Lady of Shalott: So I’d be loath to tar anyone with their family’s dirt. We are who we construct ourselves to be. Unfortunately – Danny Boy seems to have run out of building blocks.

    I am completely heart-broken over what has happened. I can’t even start to explain how hurt I felt when I heard about this between Danny & Adam.
    I don’t know what to believe about what happened that night, and I don’t know if Danny was doing this to intentionaly hurt Adam, and I don’t know if Adam took it the wrong way or not.

    I wish we didnt judge Danny because of his cousins nieve comments..Just because his cousins feel that way doesnt mean Danny does, lets try to remember that..I just hope his family hasnt ruined his career and that they do some sort of a public apology…

    Phee have u read my name I just feel like thats totally ridiculousit has nothing to do with da “almighty” just preference and I am sharing my honest ops hence the name you dont have to agree with me. I still think people should be able to do what they want because I do know that being gay has nothing to do with your sincerity and john is a jackass.

    Thank you for your voice of reason. I would HATE to be tried and convicted of something that a cousin of mine, much less a cousin BY MARRIAGE perpetrated. Danny has been very respectful of Adam and has said that he accepts everyone. Danny has never shown a hateful side, but the haters out there keep making him into some kind of a monster.

    The cousin was a silly girl. The cousin in law was a royal ignoramus jerk and Danny should distance himself by at least a thousand miles at all times.

    I also posted a comment on this picture but it wasn’t shown because it’s toward the end of the list. I don’t think most of the family including Danny have any problem with gay people, as they shouldn’t. Maybe one person did but you can’t blame the whole family for one persons wrong comment. I also think the other comments about Talea are not necessary and are being taken completely the wrong way. The family is not homophobes so everyone can chill out now.

      On my post, I directly targeted only ONE douchebag. The cousin-in-law. I thought his comments were the most offensive, and he frequents Gokey Fan boards and was always giving interviews to the local press, even giving photos to the local Fox affiliate and then bragging on one of the fan boards about how he is offered money for his photos, but never accepts.

      That dude needs a muzzle. And his last name isn’t Gokey. I know there are decent people in Gokey’s family, so I don’t think they should necessarily receive the brunt of this crap. I’m positive not all of them hate gay people.

      ” I also think the other comments about Talea are not necessary and are being taken completely the wrong way. The family is not homophobes so everyone can chill out now. ”

      So the comment about her dad staying as far away as the room allowed is not homophobic, is it?

      The family are not just homophobes but ignoramuses.

        actually No…that was a comment she made that was a JOKE but only people who really know her knew that. Her Dad was around them taking pics and talking to Adam and not avoiding anyone. They aren’t homophobes at all and the comment was NOT meant seriously.

    That’s just so sad because the girl who got an autopgraphed picture doesn’t know how lucky she is, Adam did her a favor, he was being nice, and his gesture was exploited. I think that’s so sad. As an Adam fan, I wish I could get a picture like that with his autograph and writing. Also, I feel bad for Danny b/c even though he didn’t do anything to deserve this heat, his family members will be the cause of negative publicity for him.

    I’ve tried to give the Gokey family the benefit of the doubt all along, but this is appalling, the remarks made against Adam. They should be ashamed and offer some kind of public apology.

    So #gokeyisadouche is like #2 in Trending Topics for twitter. Way to go Gokey, you and your family pissed off the Internet.

    um wow this is not helping adam nor danny i am not saying i think the whole gay thing is right because it isnt. I do however feel that everyone should be who they are without the backlash this is a taxing country and most people pay up. So they should be able to to what they want john is a jackass but hey what else is new?

      “I’m not saying that the whole gay thing is right because it isn’t”

      How can something that you have no choice in be right or wrong? If being gay is wrong, take it up with God.

    Well I hate to see it but the Family does look like a bunch of unloved elephants. So I’m not surprised some members are spewing bile. Gokey should explain how this is akin to the “Love of Christ”, well actually he cant, what an embarrassment for him.

      It sickens me, too, Kristina.

      While Gokey was not one of my favorites on the show, I sincerely do not believe he is a bad guy. Maybe a bit naive sometimes, and not prepared for all the interview stuff. But I think his association with that cult-like “church” and that cousin of his who kept pimping their relationship out to the Milwaukee media, well…they’re doing the guy more harm than good.

        Honestly, things are dicey enough with Gokey, he doesn’t need this sort of “help” from his family. He’s perfectly able to put his own foot in his mouth, without feeling the protruding toes of various cousins. He needs to reign this bunch of losers in before his career is dead before it gets off the ground. Surely these morons knew that what you post on Facebook can eventually go public.

        Gokey is so totally clueless…it’s really sad. He needs a proper PR guy pronto, and someone to fill in the family on what’s not cool.

    • June 18, 2009 12:08 am

      Thank goodness for people like you, seriously.

  22. June 17, 2009 11:02 pm

    It’s a family chock full of idiot.

  23. June 17, 2009 10:58 pm

    Not to mention all of Talea Gokey’s gross comments on her stash of photos with Adam about how her parents would use that a “blackmail” against her (oh no, she touched a gay!) and how her father stayed as far away from Adam, like gay might be contagious. Charming people, really.
