You might have heard the news that Juan Pablo Galavis, the first Latino to star in the popular ABC TV show, “The Bachelor,” called gays “perverts” the other day.
Galavis was asked about the possibility of a future “Bachelor” series that was gay, and he went off about how that wouldn’t work because, you know… oh, let me just quote Galavis instead.
“No… I respect [gay people] but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids…”
“Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having peoples… Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.”
Galavis, who is the show’s first Latino bachelor, also stated that “there’s this thing about gay people… it seems to me, and I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not… but they’re more ‘pervert’ in a sense. And to me the show would be too strong… too hard to watch.”
Galavis’ apology wasn’t much better. He blamed the comments on his poor English. In fact, the guy’s English is amazing. And in any case, he never really explained what he was trying to say when he called us “perverts.”
Here’s his apology, via NBC’s Today Show, which has now created a new term for “gay” people, “non-heterosexuals.”
“Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis has apologized after his comments on whether the ABC reality show should do a season featuring a non-heterosexual bachelor were published Friday….
What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense and for a segment of the TV audience this would be too racy to accept. The show is very racy as it is and I don’t let my 5 year old daughter watch it.
Yes, we’re just too affectionate, intense and racy for the chilluns.
Well, Funny or Die did a great take-off on what the first gay “Bachelor” season would be like, starring Jesse Tyler Ferguson and George Takei. Ironically, this is from this past November, before the controversy arose with the current bachelor bigot.
It’s really good.
