Bigot "Bachelor"

"But I've got gay friends!"
Single dad and former Venezuelan soccer player Juan Pablo Galavis was asked this week whether it would be a good idea to have a gay "Bachelor".   He was firmly against it, saying, “I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV.  I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not, I have a lot of friends like that, but [gays] are more pervert in a sense, and to me the show will be too strong, too hard to watch on TV.”

So a deadbeat dad pimping himself out on a sexist and degrading show by simultaneously dating twenty desperate over-drinking women is a good show for families and children to watch? 

This guy has had one too many headers during his brief soccer career . . . or yet again, maybe not enough to knock the bigotry out of his thick skull.  

ABC, Warner Horizon and The Bachelor executive producers issued a statement slamming Galavis’ statements.  “Juan Pablo’s comments were careless, thoughtless and insensitive, and in no way reflect the views of the network, the show’s producers or studio,” the statement read.
