Adam Carolla

Sorry for the LGBT Bashing!

Adam Carolla has quickly offered a half-assed apology for the anti-LGBT comments he made last week -- telling TMZ, "I'm sorry my comments were hurtful. I'm a comedian, not a politician."

As we previously reported, Carolla said, "When did we start giving a sh*t about [transgender] people?" -- during his podcast last week.

The apology comes after a history of homophobic comments -- including one where Adam said gay parents were "not as good as" straight parents -- so we gotta ask ...

Forgive him for homophobic insults, maybe. Forgive him for a career of unfunniness, no.

**** YOU TMZ. You are wrong about the "not as good comment". In his book he said "ALL THINGS BEING EQUAL" he prefers a straight couple, but i*****ay couple was more equipt to handle a child he would prefer them. Do you damn research.

He shouldn't have apologized. He's a comedian. People need to lighten up and get a life. I'm sick of how hard this site is pushing the gay agenda and I'm sick of ever attack group having to get together and go after somebody that says something that hurts their feelings. Grow up people.
Adam.. apology not accepted because there was no need to apologize in the first place. Keep on doing what you're doing.

He doesn't mean it so he shouldn't apologize. It means nothing. Now he'll just be a little more careful about what he says. The reason he brings up politics is because he's caluculating. He knows he appeals to the 'manly men' who aren't the most worldly segment of the population, but they pay his bills.

I'm all for gay rights, and human rights in general, but this is starting to get ridiculous. Every day I am reading about someone being shunned because they stated their ignorant opinion. Everyone has one, and they are entitled to it, dumb or not! Lets back off on the hypersensitivity here, it's not a positive thing for the cause, in my opinion. Which I am entitled to.

Please...it's comedy. If you're not poking fun at something or someone...it's NOT funny. It's like the Lifetime channel...if some bìtch isn't getting the snot slapped out of her...it's not the Lifetime channel!
