Some news programs should start with a warning: this show may cause massive headaches.
Well, once again, we are rubbing our temples after hearing what Geraldo Rivera had to say on Sean Hannity’s show.
Not only did he defend Paula Deen AND Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for their racist and anti-gay remarks, he then brought up Alec Baldwin’s alleged outburst in which he called a photojournalist a “c*cksucking f*ggot.”
According to Geraldo, what Alec said is NOT a gay slur!
You see, Geraldo explained how he and Alec and even Sean all grew up in Long Island. And in L.I., calling someone a “c*cksucking f*ggot” isn’t so much a homophobic remark as it is just a general insult that you can call anyone! Geraldo said:
“That wasn’t a homophobic slur! If you grew up where we grew up, Sean, Baldwin and I all grew up within 10 miles of each other and when we were growing up, in my era especially, those comments were common place! You have to give people some slack!”
Actually, it's not acceptable in Long Island or ANYWHERE to use language like that!
Sooo, maybe you should quit saying otherwise, Mr. Rivera.
