Adam Carolla Gives An Empty Apology Over Gay Hate

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayTacky & TrueSad Sad

Adam Carolla Apologizes For LGBT Comments

After being called out for making some pretty ugly comments toward the LGBT community, the publicist for Adam Carolla thought it would be best to apologize:

I'm sorry my comments were hurtful. I'm a comedian, not a politician.

THAT apology is what's "YUCK!"

Yes, you're a comedian, but one with piss poor taste!

If he thinks his occupation can get him off the hook for saying such degrading comments on a civil rights issue that's large in our country right not, he's mistaken.

And this isn't the first time he's masqueraded his hate as comedy. He once said on Loveline that "all things being equal, [gay parents are] not as good as [straight parents].

In response to his recent comments, GLADD issued a statement:

Given his history of anti-gay and racist comments, networks and advertisers should know what their money is supporting if they choose to hire Adam Carolla. The gross intolerance that he tries to pass off as comedy should not have a place on our airwaves.

Agreed! Freedom of speech is still freedom of speech, but not everyone is going to want to pay for such hateful speech. Sponsors should know!

    As a Gay man, SICK but Why even give this LOSER ANY face time on your page… its enabling his hatered OMG i'm a comedian not a Politician Back in OLD hollywood his Career would be DEAD!



  2. 2

    Thought you had to be funny to be a comedian?? not funny and ugly……..



  3. 3

    Straight guys are always going to make gay jokes. They are JOKES! Just like they will always make jokes about women. Everyone is overly sensitive.



  4. 4

    Who cares what he says? He's irrelevant.



  5. 5

    Stop polarizing the bullshit. He's a comedian. Is this the new form of Gay bullying that's being created? Persecute all those that don't agree with the agenda?



  6. 6

    Maybe we should agree on a better definition of "hate speech" before groups like GLAAD get out the pitchforks and torches. He has an unpopular opinion that is unsympathetic to gays and transgenders, but this doesn't qualify as "hate speech." When you start labeling everything you might dislike or find insulting with that label, then it waters-down the true meaning of it.



  7. 7

    I'm gay and I could not care less what this Z list person who has as much impact on the general public as my crazy Aunt Esta has to say about anything. Who cares!?!?!



  8. 8

    I just lost alot of respect for him… after he apologized. One shouldn't apologize when the speak the TRUTH!

    Re: adg100 – There is no 'agenda'.



  10. 10

    While I don't agree with his comments, not everyone is going to think being gay is okay. Time you realized that. Stop focusing on the bad things gays have said and focus on the wins.



  11. 11

    Doesn't matter. He is an idiot. Look how far he didn't get after his show that perpetuated degrading women.

    Can you say women on trampolines? That is way more offensive in this day and age — this is what women still have to put up with. I'd rather be gay.



  12. 12

    Adam is my hero. Gays will always be joke material and the object of humor. Tough shit Mongoloid, get used to it.



  13. 13

    Re: Pinhead867 – Hmm, and we wonder why other countries think Americans are ignorant, fat, country bumpkins. PATHETIC, get some education, prick!



  14. 14

    What did he say this time?



  15. 15

    Beaunyc is right: Adam Corolla is irrelevant, his face could stop a clock, and he's an arrogant kyke.



  16. 16

    Perez you are such a bitch, like what u do for a living it's any better, this guy at least it's funny and yes unfortunately minorities are easy to be use as humor objects just like gay people

    You have to go online and search for his podcsts to listen to it. The carry them in the apple store. I've heard it. He's ok. He's no Howard Stern though I know he wishes he was. One thing he could learn from Howard is Howard doesn't attack people for things they had no control over.



  18. 18

    Is he any different from you, Mario, and the way you spew hate for people who don't agree with your every utterance on gays? No, he's not. What you want from him is some extreme form of public penance, and I don't think it's in the cards. If his humor runs to making gay jokes, then it is what it is. I'm not going to stop purchasing products from companies that sponsor him just because your pink ruffled panties are in a twist. I know several gay people who think gay jokes are funny, and if it's okay with them, it's okay with me.

    I NEVER liked him…. he's not that bright.

    You need help now before you devour your own self in hatred.

    Re: dryan1971
    Actually he has the #1 podcast in the world
    check out Itunes for it



  22. 22

    Re: Beaunyc
    #1 podcast in the world…Itunes if you want to listen



  23. 23

    I don't see the big deal.

    Re: xander100

    No offense, but back in "Old Hollywood" gay's couldn't have a career. Get over it dude. He said something stupid but its still his opinion. I've heard MANY gay people say worse. Like when Mario used the "gay slur" after getting his clock cleaned by Will I Am's brute.



  25. 25

    I'm all for gay rights…but honestly, in this case it's just Adam Carolla's sense of humor. It's tasteless and offensive but that's some peoples sense of humor. It's not like homosexuals are the one group that he says offensive things about. He probably is well aware of how offensive it is, and who knows how he even personally feels…it's just a joke. Plenty of people are still making jokes about African Americans, Mexicans, women…if you're a minority of any sort (or were at some point) jokes will be mad. I think some homosexuals have gotten a little too sensitive about things. He's not lobbying against gay marriage, he's not out there personally attacking you…he's just making some offensive jokes in his podcast.



  26. 26

    Fuck GLAAD. They've done more harm than good(Adam carolla bit)



  27. 27

    I've met many gay people living in Frisco who are Carolla fans and aren't up tight about everything. GLaad is making the gay community seem like douche bags. Real gay people who can speak for themselves know not to take him serious



  28. 28

    By the way he never said that straight parents are better than gay parents. He said he'd rather his kids be raised by a straight couple if given the choice, both being equal and did mention that if the gay couple was way better off he'd choose that couple. And oh yeah he is very homophobic, that's why he has publicists who are a gay couple, Lynn and Alex of Ragmag.com.

    Re: KanyeGayfish – Well said



  30. 30

    Too bad GLAAD doesn't mention how he is for gay marriage and always says it's bullshit that we are still debating this. Also that gay marriage is gonna happen. Never once has he said being gay is wrong or that they deserve less freedom.



  31. 31

    Who the fuck are you to say whether his apology is good enough? Do you speak for the entire gay community? Fuck you. He shouldn't have even had to apologize IMO.



  32. 32

    Free speech motherfuckers. FREE FUCKING SPEECH. He doesn't like the gays well that's his problem. Leave him be. Don't listen to him if you don't like him.

    Perez, you don't even report about the black people being killed in the south for being black. OR what about news stations like FOX talking shit about Muslims?

    Gay people aren't the only ones who are hated. DEAL WITH IT.



  33. 33

    He's starting as host of some 'car show'(?) that i don't know much about other than some article i read earlier… but car people, they don't like gays. So this was partly a business decision. Not to mention new fans for his podcast.



  34. 34

    Re: JGirl1988 – oh man… free speech works both ways honey.



  35. 35

    Re: Nevereclipsed01 – that's what I'm saying. everyone has their hatred and are FREE to express it. so perez needs to fuck off.
