The Internet Reacts to Ryan Murphy Winning the Carol Burnett Award
In a truly twisted twist, it was announced yesterday that Ryan Murphy will be honored with a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Golden Globes. The Carol Burnett Award has only been presented four times in total: once to Burnett herself, and later to Ellen Degeneres and “All in the Family” creator Norman Lear.
Of course the gays have something to say about that.
The award is given to someone “on the basis of their work and the lasting impact their television career achievements have had on both the industry and audiences,” which is a fair award to bestow on Murphy as he irreparably shaped the TV landscape. fucked up https://t.co/RB4oRv7Z2s

Mike Flanagan makes the horror Ryan Murphy thinks he makes and Mike White makes the gay dramas Ryan Murphy thinks he makes

Position aside, he doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to writing trans women characters.
Hey you all
Remember in Nip/Tuck when one of the characters discovers another character is trans because of how her vagina feels when he’s inside her?
What the heck???

One can see this news as a slap in the face of a community that is still reeling from the horror of Monster:
Netflix canceling warrior nun and renewing that Dahmer series for multiple seasons is my last straw

Ryan Murphy posing while also adding the LGBTQ tag on Dahmer and getting upset they took it down everything just sends me

Sorry, I refuse to believe that Ryan Murphy had good intentions with Dahmer when his game plan since 2011 is “get a hot guy to play a psychopath and hope it builds a fandom”.

Anyway Ryan, if you’re reading, someone in Scotland has your shirt.
Saw this TikTok last night and thought I’d give it a boost. If you went to this hs in 2006 and/or know Ryan Murphy, look her up and send her a message or, if you don’t have a TT, let me know and I will.
Or maybe you just want to listen to a great Scottish accent, which is fine too. pic.twitter.com/MX0lOF9yZ5
