Carson Daly

Gay People Wouldn't Have

Stopped Crazy JetBlue Pilot

3/28/2012 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Carson Daly does not believe gay people would have been able to restrain the pilot who freaked out on a recent JetBlue flight ... suggesting gays are simply not brave enough to handle dangerous situations.

It all went down on Daly's L.A. radio show this morning ... when he was talking about the flight and said, "Most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas ... it was like a bunch of dudes and well trained dudes ... thank god."

He laughingly continued, "With my luck, it would be like ... 'this is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco ... I mean, that would be my colleagues."

Then, changing his voice to sound like a gay stereotype, Carson said, "Uh, we're headed down to Vegas for the floral convention."

3:10 PM PDT -- Carson has released a statement on Twitter ... saying, "This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize."

way to keep on perpetuating stereotypes there carson.

Can't anyone make a joke in this country any more? I guess we can't have Irish, Italian, gay or rabbi jokes anymore. People need to lighten up.

see TMZ, you are really trying to create a scene here and you have dilluted the phrase "we contacted their people, so far no response" at first I actually thought you were able to contact people but now I am aware you are simply trying to be risque. it's sad

That's not exactly what he said, and you're twisting his words. I hope we're not going to see more of a bullchit apology cycle now because some guy makes a stupid joke. Bill Maher was right.

Carson probably outed himself when he said 'colleagues'. As in associates, people he hangs out with. Fellow passengers would not be colleagues. Though I don't think the gays would want this douchebag.

Another non-story TMZ is trying to make a story. Who cares. The guy is just kidding around. I'm so sick of how TMZ and all of these special interest groups like GLADD or PETA or whomever are like the politically correct police anymore. Nobody can say or joke about anything anymore.
