Andy Cohen Calls Boy Band One Direction “Twinks”, Tweets Apology

Bravo power-gay Andy Cohen was on the Today show yesterday when he called One Direction a group of “twinks”—then proceeded to say the sky was blue, the Earth was round and Kathie Lee Gifford a lush with a great set of gams.

“This morning, I went into the normal green room that we typically go into,” Cohen recalled. “I barged in, there are all these people in front of us. Oh, it’s all the leftover One Direction fans. I barged right into a room of twinks: One Direction! Security was not exactly too tight, with all due respect. I barged right in. It was crazy!”

The only thing crazy is that Andy expected us to believe he randomly barged in. Sounds more like he was a man on a mission, but we digress.

Cohen had previously referred to the group in similar terms when he tweeted, “No joke just walked right into One Direction greenroom!! The blond dude was shirtless #HolyTwink.”

Sensing a pattern to these abrupt barging-ins but we’re moving along.

Following his Today show comment Cohen once again took to his Twitter, this time to apologize: “misused word earlier — I just meant they’re cute.

But with nary a hairy chest among them, Cohen was just called it like he saw it. Was an apology really necessary?
