*Tom Cruise’s son Connor has been dropped by his DJ agent following a spat over a Super Bowl text judged to be homophobic.
The 17-year-old DJ was not happy that the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots. His agent, Todd Krim, teased Cruise with a tweet after the game, writing, “Sorry @TheConnorCruise maybe next year!!!”
Apparently, it was too soon to be talking trash to the die-hard Pats fan. According to an e-mail forwarded to publicists by Krim, Cruise texted him back, saying, “That was a gay ass f***ing tweet . . . U don’t say sh** like that about my team the second they lose. Low.”
When Krim — who heads entertainment/charity Web site Give Back Hollywood and helped book DJ gigs for Cruise — wrote back, “Umm ok . . . Dude I was f***ing joking,” Cruise responded, “That was [bleeped]” and “Idgaf” (“I don’t give a f***]).”
Cruise and Krim were both in Indy where Cruise DJed DirecTV’s Saturday night party. [See photo above.] Krim says the Twitter tantrum ended their professional relations, while sources close to Cruise say they’d parted ways weeks ago, according to the New York Post.
On Monday, Krim e-mailed colleagues with a screen grab of Cruise’s texts, saying, “I am no longer working with Connor Cruise. In fact, I am no longer speaking with [him] . . . I refuse to be professionally (or even personally) associated with someone that engages in this sort of behavior . . . I just thought you should know who and what you’re dealing with.”
He called Cruise’s comments, “highly offensive and what I consider homophobic . . . after I jokingly tweeted about the Patriots losing.”
Krim told The Post, “I did a lot for [Connor], and he was less than respectful and appreciative . . . I made a joke, and let’s just say his reaction was not what I expected. It’s disappointing when you think someone is one way and they turn out to be another.”
Connor has since released a statement to The Post through his rep, saying, “What I texted was unacceptable. It is not a reflection of who I am and what I feel, and it certainly won’t happen again.”
