John Mayer has recently found himself in a bit of trouble with the minority groups after his controversial interview with Playboy magazine and now gay rights groups are asking for an apology regarding his derogatory language.
Mayer, who gave an interview to playboy magazine, insulted many after he used the ‘N’ word, compared his penis to a supremacist and used the word ‘fag’ when referring to gay people.
According to Digital Spy, The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has urged him to apologise to the LGBT community for his language used.
The group GLAAD said in a blog post:
“John Mayer took to his Twitter account to apologise for using the N-word.

In the same interview Mayer used the anti-gay F-word when recounting the time he kissed blogger Perez Hilton and has not apologised for using that slur.
“Just as Mayer indicated in his apology that he meant no offence in his use of the racist slur, we hope the intent behind his use of the F-word was not malicious. As a public figure with millions of fans, Mayer should be more cognisant of the impact his casual use of both slurs can have.”
“As a talented musician who has made comments supportive of the LGBT community in the past, we expect more from John Mayer and ask that he apologise.”
Mayer recently kissed openly gay celebrity blogger Perez Hilton during a New Years Eve Party. He said it was the ‘toungiest kiss’ he had ever and was now regretting it.
