How do I stop students from saying everything is "gay"

I constantly hear our middle schoolers say "that's gay" to everything and everyone they dislike. When I address it, they just increase the antagonizing and will then start defending what they called gay, saying that to them gay is a synonym for stupid or today I had a student just repeat the word "gay, gay, gay, gay" to me. I contacted his mom and she said he never uses the word in an offensive way at home and her child never swears at home (this student cannot go 10 minutes without swearing at school)

I am getting worn out on constantly trying to educate students on not using the word gay or homo to describe things. Administration does not care (they never hear it, so it must not be true that students are saying it)

Any suggestions?
