PostSubject: Nicholas Sparks accused of homophobia   Thu Oct 02, 2014 6:24 pm

For those of you who thought romance author Nicholas Sparks was scandal-proof, the New York Post's Page Six section offers evidence to the contrary...

PageSix.com wrote:
World-renowned romance novelist Nicholas Sparks is a bigot who allegedly tried to ambush a former CEO of his North Carolina private school — by holding him captive in a room while assaulting and threatening him, a new lawsuit claims.

In papers filed Thursday, Sparks summoned Saul Hillel Benjamin to the conference room at the Epiphany School of Global Studies in order to fire him from his $168,000-a-year gig.

But things quickly got out of hand during the November 2013 incident.

“Sparks and others physically intimidated, threatened and assaulted Mr. Benjamin while keeping him trapped in a room for hours without even access to a bathroom,” the suit says.

Somehow I think a lot of people are going to be reading "The Notebook" in a new and less-than-flattering light after this.

So he's a psychotic kidnapper...but is he a homophobe? Does the article say?

Sounds like it, if this is anything to go by:

PageSix.com wrote:
According to the suit, Sparks — who penned “The Notebook” and “A Walk to Remember” — endorses “vulgar and discriminatory views about African-American, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.”

EDIT: Just re-read the above line...so he's not only a homophobe, he's a racist too. Lovely. Rolling Eyes

Whatever will we do when there are no more books published with white people about to kiss on the cover. Rolling Eyes
