'Rampage' Jackson criticized for gay slurs

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.
