Bernie Ecclestone Backs Putin On Gays, Is Asshole, Surprises No OneJason Torchinsky2/20/14 4:40pm23311EditPromoteGo to permalinkOh, Bernie Eccelstone. That zombie-Warhol-looking bastard. What'd the F1 Supremo do now? Oh, he said he "completely agrees" with Russian President Vladimir Putin's brutal anti-gay rights stance. As Putin's policies on his own gay population has led to widespread oppression and violence, this makes Bernie an asshole.
