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.

Um so making out with several bikini clad women and dating them over a period of a few months while taking them overnight to the 'special' suite is appropriate?! I guess he sits down with his young daughter and teaches her valuable lessons during the Bachelor. Gay or straight not appropriate for any kid.

To be fair, anything outside of missionary, pro-creative sex, is a form of perversion.

Can't say anything now a days, but the media can try to black ball someone for expressing their opinion. He shouldn't have to try to explain himself. There probably was a language problem, but so over tmz trying to ruin someone because the person doesn't agree with their liberal ways.

Why would anyone ask his opinion on anything? He's the star of the most demeaning, ridiculous show on television. If he had a brain, he wouldn't be bleaching his hair and stripping for a bunch of MILFs.

why does everyone have to apologize to gays? Not everyone likes me or my personality and I don't walk around like a constant victim demanding apologies. And he's right. Gays are more perverted because the only thing they feel defines them is their sexuality.
