Adding himself to the list of so-called comedians who think homophobia is funny, Adam Carolla rants his way into this week’s Bigot of the Week Award. On his regular podcast, Carolla launched into a tirade against the LGBT community, wondering:
When did we start giving a shit about these people?
He was particularly viscious toward the transgender community, tellling them to “shut up” and “stop ruining my life” while making some very nasty comments about Chaz Bono. Sadly, this is part of a long history of homophobia and racism from Carolla.
Like the other homophobes caught in the spotlight, Carolla offered a tepid apology. In his case, it was so weak that not even GLAAD, which accepted apologies from Tracy Morgan and Kobe Bryant, took him at his word. His defense?
I’m a comedian, not a politician.
Really? Carolla should pick up a dictionary. Comedians are supposed to be funny and hate should never equal humor.
