The gay community got pretty ticked off at Jay Leno for making insensitive comments during an interview with actor Ryan Phillippe this past Thursday. Phillippe didn’t seem too stoked about the whole experience either. I’ve been nice enough to include the video here:
However, Leno has apologized for his comments:
“In talking about Ryan’s first role, I realize that what I said came out wrong. I certainly didn’t mean any malice. I agree it was a dumb thing to say and I apologize.”
From the video, it doesn’t seem like Jay meant anything bad by it. Leno also brought up an old commercial Phillippe had done in which he had to run around naked. The Tonight Show host mentioned that he found out about Phillippe’s first role as a gay man on a soap opera and the revealing commercial by Googling his name. When you Google my name, the first thing that comes up is this. Unfortunately, my abs don’t look half that good.
