Director Brett Ratner Fired From Oscars Over Gay Slurs


It's not the first time Brett's been in controversy, but now he has a bigger price to pay for it.

Director Brett Ratner was last night dramatically fired as producer of the Oscars after making bizarre remarks including, "Rehearsal is for fags."

"Tower Heist" helmer Ratner infuriated Hollywood with the gay slur when asked about his rehearsal process at a Q&A Friday at the ArcLight in LA. The same day, he went on Howard Stern's Sirius XM show and got carried away in a raunchy discussion about sex, saying he sends women he sleeps with to his doctor to be checked for diseases.

His publicists at Rubenstein p.r. last night confirmed to Page Six they're no longer working with Ratner "because of artistic differences."
