    Donald Trump's anti-gay comments forced Rosie O'Donnell to rethink her living arrangements when she moves to Chicago.

    O'Donnell, who will tape her new daytime talk show from Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios, announced last week she would be staying in the Penthouse at Trump Chicago.

    "It's gonna be fantastic in a lot of ways," she said last week on her SiriusXM radio show. "I hate him in an entertaining-not-real way."

    The entertainer's decision was made before the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation or GLAAD asked supporters to "Tune Out Trump," rejecting everything related to the millionaire after he made a number of anti-gay statements, according to

    Trump is considering running for President in 2012. He recently commented, "I'm not in favor of gay marriage, they should not be able to marry." He also said he doesn't believe in civil unions and medical benefits for same-sex couples.

    After Trump's comments and GLAAD's request, O'Donnell changed her mind about the room with the view that Winfrey's new network booked for her.

    GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios said O'Donnell sent an important message to the majority of Americans who don't agree with Trump's statements.
