Michael Urie To Billy Crystal: If You Don’t Like Watching Gay Sex On TV, Change The Channel

Screen shot 2015-01-27 at 8.42.26 AMWhile promoting his upcoming new FX series, professional Oscars host Billy Crystal recently launched into a homophobic tirade about all the icky gay sex happening on TV lately, telling Television Critics Association, “Sometimes I think, ‘Ah that’s too much for me.’ Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste.”

After receiving criticism for his remarks, the 66-year-old doubled-down, later commenting:

I don’t understand why there would be anything offensive that I said. When it gets too far either visually … now, that world exists because it does for the hetero world, it exists, and I don’t want to see that either. But when I feel it’s a cause, when I feel it’s ‘You’re going to like my lifestyle,’ no matter what it is, I’m going to have a problem, and there were a couple of shows I went “I couldn’t watch that with somebody else.” That’s fine. If whoever writes it or produces it … totally get it. It’s all about personal taste.

Now, actor Michael Urie has responded to Crystal’s comments in the best way possible.

Speaking to the blog NewNowNext, Urie said: “I don’t think it’s overexposed. If gay sex on TV is too much for you, change the channel and don’t watch it.”

“I think there is far too much football on TV,” he continued. “But I’m not going around saying they should take football off the air; I’m changing the channel.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
