“Bachelor” Juan Pablo Now Uses The “I Have Gay Relatives” Defense

imagesI have a cousin who is gay. His sister is a nun. So it’s been around my house all my life. So, to me, it was a misunderstanding. It’s been hard because, to me, when I speak English, it happened to me two months of filming, sometimes the words that I used were not interpreted the way that they should be interpreted, or I use a wrong word. So I will go on my phone, Google and find the right word and do it that way.”


Juan Pablo Galavis explaining his now-notorious statement that gay men should not be on The Bachelor because they’re perverts during an interview with Good Morning America

    Having a gay cousin doesn’t mean that you aren’t a bigot. I don’t buy the language barrier issue for one minute.

  • litper

    I think we’re going to see more than her dick.

  • balehead

    Some of my best excuses are gay…..

  • Cam

    He makes sure to tell you his other relative is a nunn, has to make sure you don’t think ALL his relatives are terrible gay people.

  • Cagnazzo82

    Oh? So now we’ve descended to the no habla ingles excuse?… along with gay relatives :O

    All he needs now is a gay best friend and all the bases are covered.

  • MK Ultra

    “So I will go on my phone, Google”
    Juan Pablo needs Google to answer the complicated questions for him, like what does 1 + 1 equal…

  • MusicEsMiVida

    @balehead: BAHAHAHAHHA

  • KittyLitter

    It’s Juan Pablo Galavis not Juan Pablo GalavAis.
    and to the guy, “. . .”

  • KittyLitter

    So apparently the “gay version would be too ‘perverted'” guy may or may not have had unprotected sex while being filmed.
    Of course the bitch denies it. Why wouldn’t she? It would make her seem like a cheap slut if she didn’t.

  • dougmc92

    keep digging….looking forward to the nude/erect selfie he sent out- otherwise, shut this guy up!

  • Caleb in SC

    “I graduated from college in the United States, but I cannot speak proper English.” Raising the bullshit flag on that mess.

  • BlackHouston

    Juan Pablo is irrelevant. His homophobia is benign, apology accepted, keep it moving.

  • Kangol

    Este chanchote es un tontón.

  • robirob

    The language barrier thing has worn itself out. If it really was true he would have shut up by now or the press get some candid pictures of him being in an evening English class.

    This is all about attention and creating a controversy and keeping said controversy alive for ratings.

  • Geoff B

    Not buying the “no habla Ingles” excuse and sure a hell not buying the “some of my best friends are…” defense either. They can both be valid excuses in very narrow instances, and I’m first to give someone the benefit of the doubt, but nah, screw this guy.

  • Stefano

    Just like Putin said !

  • Louis

    They always use this stupid excuse and its so predictable as well.

    Nice Try Juan its been done too death cut the bs already and accept and embrace your bigotry and ignorance and educate yourself so you can evolve mentally in that regard.

    @Jonty Coppersmith: I have cousins. They spent the vast majority of their lives bigoted, and if they did not marry women that were very forward thinking, they would probably still be bigoted. I have another cousin that is a JW. Those people hate anything that is not part of the 144,000 that get to go to heaven or whatever.

  • tdx3fan

    @Cam: I would say that it hints more to the fact that the VAST majority of all nuns are lesbian. They normally marry Jesus instead of having to face the future married to a man.

  • tdx3fan

    @MK Ultra: We all know what he is most famous for using his phone for… or at least what he will soon be.

  • tdx3fan

    @Caleb in SC: I go to college in the United States, and I can assure you that they spend no time teaching student’s how to speak the language.

  • deltabadhand

    I can understand and empathize with Juan Pablo because I have cousins and knew nuns who were idiots and prejudiced too…

  • misterhollywood

    What is difficult to get my head around is the original statement he made about having a “Gay Bachelor” show. My sense is that is true feelings and thoughts about this came out. Hard to back away from original statements like this. We were going to list him on our page but after his remarks the desire has evaporated. What sucks is that he probably had a fairly good sized gay fan base. I wonder if that is true anymore?

  • babybabybaby

    What a loser you know what you can do with your rose…..

  • Patsy Stoned

    He’s repugnant but then again, everything about “The Bachelor” is a joke. He really should just stop talking – you are an anti-gay bigot, you were called out on it. Just own it. The language excuse is pure BS.

    Any gay person who watches your dregs-of-TV show isn’t worthy of comment, and the rest of us don’t care. So give your rose to your whore, um, wife, and please fade into oblivion where you belong. Oh, and please release the dick pic, cause that is about the only thing you have going for you.

  • Caleb in SC

    @tdx3fan: Apparently, they also do not teach grammar.

  • chub4bears

    Show us his erect internet self peen and then we can discuss who is a pervert for having sex with 28women in the Bachelor hot tub. NO..WAIIT…make that 27. One was 7months pregnant.
