It is a creepy video to watch and even creepier at a national fund-raiser. He has already issued an apology for a poor choice of words. Click here for apology.
One thought on “Gay Groups Demand Action Against Jerry Lewis for Broadcast Slur”
That made me wince. In his younger days, it was perfectly acceptable to make fag jokes (and pollack/wop/nigger jokes), but now, it’s a different world.
I wonder how he’d react to a muscular dystrophy patient being called a “retard”?
I’d blame his age on this one, but I think he was just scraping bottom to get a yuk-yuk out of people, and it backfired.
At least he issued an apology. Probably better to move on.
