Juan Pablo Galavis

Gay 'Bachelor' Would Be Bad Influence on Kids

011814_juan_pablo_launch
"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.

Opinionated people make for reality TV ratings. Whether you agree with him or not, he's a better pick for the show than someone with a prepared politically correct response ready at all times.

I am sooooo thankful to have him as my moral compass. He truly has led an exemplary life up until this point. (I am glad I will have more time in the evenings now that I will stop watching this show). This, unfortunately, is what happens when REALLY stupid people speak. (

Watching 25 men make out in hot tubs around the world sounds pretty perverted to me. I must be a bigot.

Oh wait, liberals think that WOULD be good for kids to watch.

Yawn.

I've seen more hate spewed in these comments than six weeks worth of these "gay-basher" articles. People, what the Phuk?! Seriously, it's this mans opinions and he's entitled to them-sad thing is I'm gay and I do agree with this man-the gay community is perverted. However has anyone considered the fact none of our parents really knew how to incorporate their morals into our lifestyle. Not out parents fault either, just the outcome of a problem being under rug swept. Someone should write a book and teach queers some morals. No ****, parents need a training manual and you all need to get the hell off your pedestals cause America has always had a sick obsession with singling out communities and being a bunch of pricks to them. Also Logo had a show like the bachelor-it sucked and was perverted. Then Again this show isn't high on the morality scale either now is it. And why is the gay community allowing tmz to put words in our mouthes?! (There's a joke waiting to be made right there) I haven't heard anyone speak of half the **** tmz reports-TMZ YOUR MAKING THE BREEDERS THINK WERE A BUNCH OF PHUCKING QUEENS! I for one don't give a **** what people think of my lifestyle-hell, I throw stones and strangers glass homes all the time!!!!
