South American actor disses homosexuals
Not allowed in the land of the free, of course
GAYS and bisexuals shouldn't have a place on the hit show The Bachelor because it would be "too hard to watch," according to the latest star of the ABC series.
According to the New York Post , Juan Pablo Galavis, 32, claims he respects homosexuals - but said putting them on the romantic show would set a bad example for kids.
"They're more pervert [sic] in a sense. To me, the show would be too strong, too hard to watch on TV," he said in an interview.
The show's producers slammed the comments as "careless, thoughtless and insensitive." The former Venezuelan soccer star later apologised on Facebook - claiming he didn't mean to use the word "pervert."
"Everyone knows English is my second language," he wrote. "What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense ... this would be too racy" on TV.
