'Bachelor' Juan Pablo Galavis' Gay Comments Spark Controversy
“The Bachelor” star Juan Pablo Galavis is causing controversy after he made anti-gay comments.
When asked if he thought it would be a good idea to have a gay or bisexual “Bachelor” one day, Galavis said no.
“Just ‘cause I respect them, but honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids to watch that on TV … and there’s this thing about gay people … they’re more pervert in a sense. And to me, the show will be too strong, too hard to watch on TV.”
He later apologized, saying that “pervert” wasn’t the word he meant and that “English is my second language and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish.”
The hosts of The Five discussed the comments this evening.
“I mean the fact of the matter was it was an anti-gay rant, he could say everything he wants to walk it back, he can’t walk it back because he’s a homophobe,” Bob Beckel said.
“What he said was impulsive, it wasn’t malicious, it wasn’t planned,” Greg Gutfeld said.
