Carson Daly's incredibly offensive anti-gay comments

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Wow, I hadn't seen this story before. What an ass. I mean, this is really quite bigoted for today's day and age. Who makes jokes about gays being wimpy florists? Wow. And now his apology is claiming that his comments were unintentional. He unintentionally said that gays are a bunch of wimply florists who would never defend you in your time of need. Yeah, quite unintentional. From PopWatch:

Alice Hoagland, mother of Mark Bingham — one of the passengers who charged the cockpit of hijacked Flight 93 on the morning of 9/11 — would like to remind everyone, including Daly, that stereotyping gay men is wrong.

On his morning radio show Wednesday, Daly had said, “It turns out on this particular [JetBlue] flight, most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas…. There was a bunch of dudes and well-trained dudes. What are the odds of that? …. Thank god…. My luck, it would be like, ‘This is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco’ …. I mean, that would be my colleagues…. ‘Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.’…. ‘Can we get a little help up here with the pilot?’ ‘Oh, Nooo!’…. ‘No thank you. Handle it.’”
