I think at this point everyone believes Joe Simpson is gay and has just not publicly come out. You have escorts and boyfriends who have been tested on lie detector tests and you don't have Joe Simpson out there saying he is not or threatening to sue, so I don't really get when TMZ has a little report that says Joe has been telling friends and family that the speculation is absurd. That is not a denial. That is just saying that speculating about it is absurd. There are just too many people who have spoken about this for Joe to just plead with TMZ to help make it go away. Be out and be proud. Sure, you have been homophobic in the past and said it was a horrible sin and that people would go to hell if they were homosexual, but now is your chance to help change all of that. Plus, everyone wants to know where you got your new hairstyle done.
