Brett Ratner Resigns: Oscar Producer OUT

Brett Ratner is out as producer of the 84th Academy Awards show.It's been a tumultuous several days for Ratner, who, amongst several offenses, used a gay slur when asked a question about filmmaking. The director said that "rehearsing is for fags" in a Q&A session following a screening of his new film, "Tower Heist," at L.A.'s Arclight Cinemas.

Senh: D'oh! That's what you get for making a gay slur. As a celebrity, you gotta be careful about what the words coming out of your mouth.
