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.

He must have forgotten that if you are a strait white male, you cannot take a stand on what you believe. Silly bastard! Maybe he will learn this time.

Dating 25 women simultaneously is not bad for children to see on TV?

He's hateful, ignorant, homophobic.... but, respects perverts.

k....

1. He speaks a different language and therefore, said the wrong word, i.e pervert.
2. He is ALLOWED to disagree with homosexuality.
3. Notice, he does still have gay friends.
4. how about LIGHTEN UP... you freaking drama obsessed morons. :) :)
5. Not agreeing with homosexuality is NOT the same as being racist as much as you would like that to be so.

SO... **** off .. god

I've questioned the sexuality of every bachelor on the show since the beginning. Why not get it out in the open. For The Bachelorette, too. For the first time, The Bachelorette would blow The Bachelor away in the ratings!

What would be the point of having all the girls vying for a guys attention on the Batchelor if he was gay. But then I don't see any point to the stupid show at all. It is a shame that a person cannot express their opinions anymore without repercussions.He thinks the way most people do . I have nothing against gays but their lifestyle is being forced on everyone these days.

if you think there's a market for a gay bachelor show then create one. stop telling other creators how and what to do.

The ENTIRE premise of this show is bad for societal values expecially when it comes to women. It's dated and it's sad that people watch it.

You would think that TMZ is run by a gay the way they take great offense at an opposite point of view.

@PoeticNotVictims, Are you seriously comparing the plight of black people with the plight of gays? Are you freaking stupid or are you just insane? You want the same freedom and equality that they are receiving after being sold as property, beat, raped, forced to do hard labor for no compensation, and treated worse than how their pathetic owner treated their animals. So are you signing up to be auctioned off soon? Or will you be experiencing any of the horrors that many generations of black people experienced? No, then please take your soap box and skulk on home to live your life as you choose. You are extremely ignorant if you think that black people do not still face racism. Many of them have said that their fight is far from over, so you should quite possibly learn about diversity, freedom, and equality before demanding it. So, did someone stomp on your neck to prevent you from licking a vag or sucking a d!ck? NO, so please stop pretending like someone trampled on your right to live a gay lifestyle. Will it be okay for you to take advantage of the rights you are accusing the other poster of taking advantage of? Why are you wanting only acceptance for those who believe or think like you? That seems no more tolerant than those you want tolerance from. True tolerance won't exist until people are free to both do and say what they choose without any repercussions. Going from one extreme to other isn't any better. You aren't interested in equality or tolerance, you just want what you want and you couldn't care less about anything or anyone else.
