The Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis Apologizes For His Homophobic Comments! Says Language Barrier Is The Issue & Will Meet With GLAAD!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

The Bachelor Juan Pablo addresses his homophobic comments

It certainly seems like he’s trying to make amends!

The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Galavis made some incredibly horrible and hurtful comments about gay and bisexual people on Friday night, and now he’s clarifying them.

ABC and the show’s execs were quick to separate themselves from what JP said, and issued their own statement, which read:

"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."

Then, the non-native English speaker took to his Facebook to sort out the situation in a heartfelt letter, writing:

“People,

I want to apologize to all the people I may have offended because of my comments on having a Gay or Bisexual Bachelor. The comment was taken out of context. If you listen to the entire interview, there's nothing but respect for Gay people and their families. I have many gay friends and one of my closest friends who's like a brother has been a constant in my life especially during the past 5 months. The word pervert was not what I meant to say and I am very sorry about it. Everyone knows English is my second language and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish and, because of this, sometimes I use the wrong words to express myself. What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense and for a segment of the TV audience this would be too racy to accept. The show is very racy as it is and I don't let my 5 year old daughter watch it. Once again, I'm sorry for how my words were taken. I would never disrespect anyone.

Sinceramente,

Juan Pablo Galavis.”

This is nice of Juan Pablo, but unfortunately he didn’t address some of the other hurtful things he said like how it would be weird to have two dads! Which is still an awful thing to say!

Thankfully, JP is meeting with GLAAD this week, and is addressing the issue of parenting! In another statement to the organization, the reality TV star explained:

"I have heard from many gay Latinos today who are hurt because of what I said and I apologize. I know gay parents and I support them and their families. They are good parents and loving families. I am a father and I know the feel of being a father, why wouldn't I want my gay friends to also be happy parents?

I also want gay and lesbian youth to know that it is fine to be who you are. Gay or straight, Black or White, Latin or American, what matters here is to respect who we are.

I look forward to meeting with gay and lesbian families as well as Monica and Wilson from GLAAD. Gay and lesbian people, and the children they are raising, wrongfully face discrimination and I want them to know that I'm on their side."

We hope that really is true because it’s clear that Juan Pablo has some influence in pop culture already!

    Bet he and Secreast are on the 'down-low' ….butt buddies….

    Too bad you can't have an opinion any more. He wasn't "gay bashing" just giving his opinion.

    And now the all-important meeting with GLAAD. I find that annoying as hell. Just like if someone says something 'off' about black people, it's time to meet Sharpton. It's incredibly insincere and based on making sure that people forgive and then these 'celebs' can continue making outrageous money for doing nothing. What bullshit.

    He can apologize all he wants but he still has a bad bias against gay people and I'm uncomfortable watching the show. It's off my season pass.

    Re: Intellipenny – In this case I find it annoying too.. those are pre planned apologies, I doubt he even read through them. What he said originally was in broken English.

    The use of the feces hole for sex is dirty, nasty, stinky and full of major disease. Sodomy by the popular definition is anal sex only. DON'T GET ME WRONG I CAN SEE LESBIANS AND THE ORAL SEX CROWD AS A RIGHT TO MARRY but feces hole sex is a mental disorder. The CDC in 2006 linked gay sodomite males with over 50% of all the new HIV cases and nobody else was even close. LEGALIZE THE LESBIANS AND ORAL'S BUT REQUIRE GAY MALES TO SUBMIT TO A FECAL BLOOD TEST FOR ANAL SEX and deny them a right to marry. In fact anybody certified as a sodomite by traditional definition should not be allowed to serve in the military. TEACHING KIDS AND THE MENTALLY CHALLENGED THAT FECES HOLE SEX IS NORMAL AND A RIGHT IS VERY WRONG. Crap is really, really dirty.

    How is it hurtful to say that it's weird to have two gay dads? That's not homophobic. Having two dads is different from most families that doesn't mean its wrong Perez. You need to relax.

    Mr. Morality? He knocked up his ONE-NIGHT-STAND; abandoned his bastard daughter; and is on a TV show where he's trying to FUCK 20 bleached blond door-knob stupid gold-digging strippers/escorts….

    Re: Gilbert S Lay – It's quite simple moron, just like washing your hands before your meal. You simply douche your hole!! Now you really didn't think homos really pack fudge did you?? My, my, you must be really "special" wink wink….downs syndrome maybe?



  21. 21

    He should not have to apologize for what he believes and for what a good majority of othes believe. Sorry, butt a great deal of Americans would never watch a gay or bi bachelor season.

  22. Verdad says – reply to this

    Re: ButtLove – You are the one with ' wink, wink 'down syndrome" to believe gays wash their butt holes before sex and even more STUPID to think that washing one's butt hole elevates diseases - WHAT AN ASS!!!. LEAVE GILBERT S LAY alone, I agree with that comment - butt hole sex is NASTY & Disease ridden. You must be practising butt hole sex and the ONLY one washing the butt hole and stupid enough to think its clean after washing - GO Back to School Retard.

    Re: ButtLove
    Most straight people have no clue what gay males do or don't do and that's ok. We really don't need to know. It's not necessary or even desirable for you to educate us.

    Why now days when some one offends a group for having their own opinion do they have to make an apology or meet with that group. GLAAD and PETA are the most notorious for that. They shove their opinions down everyone's throat, whine and demand like everyone owes them something. You can be respectful of others lifestyles but not agree with it.

    Re: switz11 – I completely agree with you!!!! Im gay myself and what he said was not offensive at all!!! People need to lighten up and stop causing so much drama over such comments. How many times did the guy say that he doesn't mean anything bad by what hes saying or that hes has nothing against gay people, yet no one seems to listen to that. I agree with him with having two gay guys on tv, it would be a huge sausage fest lol!!
