Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is getting bad reviews for how he has acted, but it has nothing to do with his performance as B.A. Baracus in the soon-to-open A Team .

Jackson is hearing criticism for his remarks in a Los Angeles Times article about the MMA star's movie debut.

"Acting is kind of gay ... it makes you soft," Jackson told the Times . "You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you're cold."

The story also reported how Jackson responded to a gay slur from a film crew member during shooting in Vancouver with a torrent of gay slurs himself. MMAfighting.com said of the article: "The ignorance on display isn't the writers', it's Jackson's."

Jackson lost to Rashad Evans last weekend in a UFC 114 bout.
