Leno Apologizes

Comedian Jay Leno issued a short, stumpy apology for his Ryan Phillippe “gay look” remark: “In talking about Ryan’s first role, I realize that what I said came out wrong. I certainly didn’t mean any malice. I agree it was a dumb thing to say, and I apologize.” So half-assed, but we wouldn’t expect anything less – or is it more? [People]

    Jay is just the mouthpiece for a troop of “comedy” writers that even feed him interview chit-chat ideas. I’m no fan, but also don’t see what the big deal is. Just that Jay is not considered a cool enough straight guy to make gay jokes? If he was gay or had a gay best friend, he’d be in the clear? I was more offended at how many dudes posted their response (on The Gayest Look) with their shirts off, never wasting an opportunity to cruise.

    So we do what GLAAD USED to do; keep his feet to the fire. Make him accountable. Vigilance.
