That escalated quickly
nikka gonna end up self funding "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar 2" at this rate
How so? Seems like a total unforced error to me. Smart for his appeal to conservative audiences, maybe, but dumb for the opportunities it could close off. Then again he's likely rich enough that it doesn't matter.
Well, he did apologize, but the whole thing could have been avoided if he had disavowed his shitty jokes ages ago.
Why are people so convinced that this is actually homophobia, rather than offensive jokes from like eight years ago? And from a fucking stand-up skit as well? This whole "cancel culture" is getting ridiculous now. How do people keep falling for this?
I gladly fail to see how the tweets are jokes
Have you seen the actual tweets he's been spouting for years? They don't resemble jokes at all unless he's the shittiest comedian in the history of mankind.
You know, not everybody was a homophobic piece of shit in the distant, savage dark ages of mid 2000s-2010s. The drive for better, more equal, less bigoted treatment of minorities has been a thing for decades. Some people just weren't the kind who'd shit on minorities (or anyone) for jokes because that's just not who they are about as people. Some people just are nicer that way.
it's been known that he is extremely homophobic for years so I'm not suprised.Dudes trash and always has been. Glad hes not hosting anymore (though Kimmel inevitably coming back gonna be boring af too)
Pretty insane how this idiot refused to apologize tho. I didnt see it coming since I always thought he was so self-preservating
He chooses THIS as the hill to stand on. Yikes
I was wondering about that, how is it possible to handle a situation this badly in 2018? He could've even just lied.
This is not homophobic to you?
Cancel culture is ridiculous though. Really wish he had just apologized and everyone moved on.
He cancelled himself.
I doubt announcing him as host would go any better given the transphobic material that he has used both in the past, and as recently as this year in that Netflix special he did.
