Gay Goes After Jay Leno

Avenue Q creator Jeff Whitty finds nothing funny about Jay Leno’s homo-related punchlines. And in an effort to fight The Tonight Show host’s rib-tickling, Whitty took to the pages of The Advocate to publish an open letter. A mere taste: “I know you know gay people, Mr. Leno. Are they just jokes to you, to be snickered at behind their backs? Despite the angry tenor of my letter, I suspect you’re a better man than that…I’m tired of people like you.” Whitty then tells Leno he needs to “cut it out” or he’ll be really, really mad.
