Last weekend, Kirk Cameron's controversial remarks on homosexuality sparked a firestorm of debate among media officials, celebrities and fans who wondered if the "Growing Pains" star had gone too far.

The 41-year-old actor and devout Christian told CNN's Piers Morgan that homosexuality is "unnatural...detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

Though the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) condemned the actor's claims as being "out of step" and "even more dated than his 1980s TV character," Cameron is hardly the first celebrity to catch heat for making statements largely perceived as anti-gay.

Now a Tea Party activist, former "Saturday Night Live" star Victoria Jackson slammed "Glee" in a column after the hit series aired a kiss between two gay characters, while Mel Gibson reportedly used blatantly homophobic slurs in an interview with a Spanish newspaper in 1991.

Meanwhile, Chris Brown, Cee-Lo Green and Blake Shelton are just three celebrities who've had to apologize after tweeting comments that some interpreted as anti-gay.

Take a look at some celebrities who've expressed anti-gay or homophobic sentiments below:
