‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ out as contender for GLAAD award

GLAAD has removed the Freddy Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” from consideration for an Outstanding Film nomination after allegations of sexual misconduct were leveled against the film’s director this week.

A story published in The Atlantic on Wednesday detailed four new allegations of sexual assault and misconduct against director Bryan Singer.
In a statement, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, a media monitoring organization, says the report of “unspeakable harms endured by young men and teenage boys brought to light a reality that cannot be ignored or even tacitly rewarded.”
Representatives for Singer did not respond to CNN’s request for comment on the film being withdrawn from consideration for the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards.
