Juan Pablo Galavis

Gay 'Bachelor' Would Be Bad Influence on Kids

"The Bachelor"' star Juan Pablo Galavis apparently believes gays are more perverted than the average bear ... because he thinks putting a gay equivalent of him on the show would poison the mind's of children.

Juan Pablo raised some waxed eyebrows when he spoke to The TV Page saying "I don't think it is a good example for kids" ... and then said gay people are "more pervert in a sense."


Juan Pablo's gag reflex apparently isn't that good ... because he thinks the show would be too hard to watch if the star were gay.

So, we gotta ask ...


update_graphic_red_bar
12:55 PM PT -- Warner Horizon Television and the show's executive producers just released a statement saying, "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."

2:25 PM PT -- Juan Pablo posted an apology on his Facebook page saying his words were "taken out of context" (even though TV Page released the audio with the story) ... and he has nothing but respect for gay people.

Juan Pablo also says he didn't mean to call homosexuality "pervert" ... and blames the bad choice of words on his crappy English.

Uhhhh....that's a show for bravo. Why so much hate for personal beliefs. The bs is when people say "sure that would be great" to a show like that when they would never actually watch it. A lot of people support gay people's right to happiness without wanting to watch them making out, myself included.

A CHILD knows in kindergarten or first grade… or at least by ninth grade. Therefore, to castigate him or try to blind him only hurts. You cannot block who a person is, because it will only make that person resent you deeply.

MOST BACHELORS are gay anyway… or at least on the DL. I've never watched The Bachelor, but I do know that there are a lot of bisexual bachelors. Women and gay men alike have to compete for a straight guy. It's just a hard, cold fact. Gay guys go to gay clubs to dance, and to dance only. Otherwise, to pick up, they generally will go to a straight club. Get with it… if you want your show to be reality.

It's the kind of irritated you get when a person of little relevance insults you. Wrong comments by him (simply because he's a person) CERTAINLY not because he's relevant, worth listening to, or to be taken seriously. Any smart lady will know how to stay away from this one. Waste of time. #MovingRightAlong

Who cares what he said. The media has become so fuking critical about what people say. What a bunch of sensitive wimps. This society is so screwed up, we talk and we attack someone for what they say and believe….so why cant I say my opinion without people saying crap……INSANE. What ever happen to freedom of speech. The only ones who were offended were the liberals screaming.

I think this is what most of us need to hear. Some straight people want to have "friendships" with gay people, to flaunt it, and use it as an example of their "open minded" view of things, all the while looking down upon those same people as being something less. It is good to know how one really feels, then you know who your "real" friends are, no faking it. This guy is an idiot, and like so many others has a blind side to his own prejudice.

I thought that this was a free Country. Jaun Pablo has the right to speak his mind. We haven't even had a Black Bachelor yet, so why have a gay one? I don't want to see that, and I have 2 gay sons that I love with all my heart. Stop trying to shove gay down our throats.

Between the pitchy stripper, Miley Cyress and D.B. Biebs, I think straight people have little to talk about these days. Clean-up your own house before you start call names.
