This shouldn't even be an article. Deadspin once again putting up an article that does not matter. Especially the day after the Super Bowl we put up an article that does not have substantial, nor sufficient evidence that shows Mikey Miss hates gays, or that he has a homophobia. People are to quick to pull the trigger an assume, which the website has done. The guy writing to him obviously has nothing better to do with his free time, and he doesn't send the emails that he first sent to Mikey Miss, why? I wonder what he wrote, also the gay continues to ask him stupid questions do you hate gays? He was asking questions to create a news story which Deadspin has allowed to happen. I listen to Mikey Miss, not the biggest fan, but he tells you how he feels especially when dumb callers call in. Very disappointed that this shit even made headlines, especially the day after the SB. This isn't even relevant Tom Ley almost all of your pieces are garbage, you should work for Bleacher Report you'd fit in well with that shit hole people call a sports website.

Philly Radio Host Gets All Homophobic In Email Fight With Listener [Updates]

Philly Radio Host Gets All Homophobic In Email Fight With Listener [Updates]

Mike Missanelli is the host of a drive-time sports radio show on Philadelphia radio station 97.5 The Fanatic. His bio page is full of plaudits—"Mike's sports acumen, witty pop-cultural references and overall fun persona are just a few of the many factors that draw listeners to the show and helped him ascend to #1"—but according to a series of emails that a tipster shared with us, the producers at The Fan might want to consider adding "homophobic asshole" to that list of descriptors.

One of Mike's listeners recently got into a drawn-out email fight with Missanelli, and the radio host did not come off as very swell guy. To be fair, we should point out that our tipster did not share his end of the exchange (see update below) with us, but we assume he's a huge asshole, too. Here are the messages Missanelli sent one of his listeners:

Hahaha. Yeah, you're a total computer geek loser with absolutely NO female involvement. Anybody who wastes four hours of the day listening to my radio show and sending e-mail from fake names has a a big "L" tattooed on his forehead. Women probably avoid you like stink. (BTW, what are you gonna do today with me off? Jerkoff to one of my podcasts, you obsessive homosexual IT freak?)

Yeah, Sure. You're whole life is a lie. Insecure people are usually like that. You are a 24 karat loser. And totally in denial because to take inventory of that would hurt you too much. You're an obsessive weird-o and probably a closet homosexual.

Dude, your shit is boring. And if you dont think that abnormal behavior is someone who listens four hours a day to a guy he suppoedly loathes and then wastes more time sending abusive emails under fake names, then more power to you. I would first deal with your latent homosexuality problem.

Yeah. Sure. Two words: latent homosexuality. Discuss it with a mental health professional.

I think that's why your engagement broke up. Your fiancée realized you don't like women that much. That's why you lie about your "prowess." You are a lonely loser who can't get a date. So come out of the closet and I guarantee you'll get male dates.

Hahahahahahahahahaha. YOU, getting tough with ME? Hahahahahahaha. Dude, I would fucking PRAY to say those things to your face. Hahahahaha.

By the way, your obsession with me is unhealthy. You are a latent homosexual. But sorry to tell you, Im straight, so fuck off.

Dude, find yourself a nice guy out there in Vegas. Just don't tell your parents back east that you're really gay.

Family dinner was yesterday douche bag. Headed out now. Blue Bayou. And you? Lemme guess: trying to find another hooker you think you can have sex with only to come up impotent again because you're really homosexual and in denial? Yeah, got that about right...

Dude, you're a total fucking fraud. You fix computers. End of fucking story. Plus you are a lonely loser. Have to be to be so obsessed and jealous of me. The unfortunate part about your "date" tonight is that obviously she's going to be embarrassed when you can't get it up because you're a closet homosexual. Just give into it bro to avoid the embarrassment.

Aside from being homophobic, Missanelli's burns are desperately lacking in creativity. How many times can you go to the "you're a latent homosexual" well, man?

Update: Our tipster sent along some more emails, and this time he included his end:

I'm sure your radio bosses love that their host expresses bigotry and tosses around gay slurs. Hahaha. You're lucky that I dont care enough to get you fired and am too busy with other things. I NEVER listen to your show, btw.

Let's see. I called you an unmarried 60 year old who lives alone and hangs on to the same girlfriend. Tell me what I am incorrect about. (Did you really just call me a homosexual three emails in a row? What is wrong with you? I could get you fired if I wanted. But you're a nice enough guy that I wont.)

From: mikemiss@975thefanatic.com
To: [redacted]

Hahaha. Bro, you have no idea about my life. That's what's really amusing. And yet, I know about your life based on you wasting four hours a day obsessing about my show and taking the time to make up fake names and send abuive e-mails. Hahaha. You are an obsessive, latent homosexual weird-o who fixes computers. Hahaha. So .

To: mikemiss@975thefanatic.com

I dont even listen to your show. Your several homosexual insults indicate a great hatred towards the gay community. It might be time to open your eyes and stop being closed-minded.

From: mikemiss@975thefanatic.com
To: [redacted]

Don't hate gay people at all. Just think you should come out of the closet. You have an obsession with me.

From: [redacted]
To: mikemiss@975thefanatic.com

Let me ask you. Why do you hate gay people? You know it's the year 2013?

From: mikemiss@975thefanatic.com
To: [redacted]

Dude, you are without question a latent homosexual. Not that there's anything wrong with that. You have an obsession with me. I just think you need to deal with it.

Update No. 2:

Another reader just forwarded us an email that Missanelli sent him in June of 2011. It reads:
