Betty White Doesn’t Understand Homophobes: “What Kind Of Human Being Are You?”

betty-white-homophobiaFormer Golden Girl Betty White has given up on trying to understand homophobia.

In an interview with Larry King this week, the 92-year-old actress reaffirmed her favorable stance on gay rights in response to a fan’s question regarding the impact the gay community has had on her career.

Echoing the sentiment from her 2010 Parade interview, in which she first came out in support of gay rights, White says she doesn’t understand why homophobes think same-sex relationships are any of their business.

“I don’t care whom you sleep with,” she said. “It’s ‘what kind of human being are you?’ I don’t understand [why people are antigay], it’s such a personal private business and it’s none of mine.”

In her initial 2010 interview, White said “I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”

    A near-centenarian is telling you your bat-shit crazy, bigoted, and backwards, THEN YOU ARE DEFINITLY BAT-SHIT CRAZY, BIGOTED, AND BACKWARDS!

    Wow. Shame on Queerty! How sleezy we’ve gotten when we have to take sweet little Betty White’s pro-gay comment and twist it so out of context that in your headline that it sounds like she’s laying the smackdown someone else. You KNOW she didn’t mean it like that or even direct it at someone else in that way. Yet you felt it acceptable to manipulate her words anyway. “Queerty Editor” is no better than Fox News now. You should be shamed.

    <3 Betty though. She's awesome and I love her views.

    Betty White is a CUN*. and, why? oh yeah that movie where she said “if I had a dick you could suck it”. she said that on my TV, in my living room, in front of my 12 year old daughter. if she said that in person to a 12 year old i could have had her arrested. i never forgave her for that. she was a big star and never had to say those words, yet she did, in front of my daughter. CUN*.
