The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis is still trying to backpedal after making some seriously upsetting comments about gay people last month.

When asked if a gay dude would make a good Bachelor contestant, the American-born Venezuelan answered that ABC shouldn’t do a same-sex version of the reality series because gay people are, “more pervert.”

Um…wow. That’s about the most homophobic thing we’ve ever heard. But Juan Pablo chalked it up to a language misinterpretation!

He’s continuing on his apology tour, appearing on Good Morning America today. He wants his fans to know that he has no problem with gay people, since he has one in his own family!

Juan Pablo stated this morning:

"I have a cousin who is gay. His sister is a nun. So it’s been around my house all my life. So, to me, it was a misunderstanding.”

He also reiterated that English isn’t his first language which is why he said what he said last month. Juan Pablo explained:

"It’s been hard because, to me, when I speak English, it happened to me two months of filming, sometimes the words that I used were not interpreted the way that they should be interpreted, or I use a wrong word. It was a misuse of a word.”

Even if the word he used was wrong, the sentiment was still there! Blaming this hateful blunder on a language barrier or trying to come across as accepting because of a gay family member seem like WEAK defenses in our opinion!

But what do you think, Perezcious readers? Should all be forgiven with Juan Pablo??

    Well it is kinda true….gay people on network shows tend to be more….let's say promiscuous. Anyways, why is it bad to have a negative opinion on things? If someone says bad about the LGBTQ+ community it's like they have to beg for forgiveness. If someone says something bad about idk….people who have blonde hair it's swept under the rug.

    I honestly don't think he meant 'pervert' but meant to say more sexual and lets face it, gays do tend to be more sexual because they tend to be more open with their sexuality while most of the straight white people here are puritanical in their sexuality.

    Although his comment was definitely homophobic and disrespectful, I feel there are more important gay rights issues to concentrate on right now. Russia's anti-gay policies for example, or legalization of gay marriage in the remaining States of the USA. Juan Pablo will fade out of importance in no time, but the more media time you give him the longer he and his politically incorrect views will be around.

    Gay men are perverted? Yeah right. Because there is nothing perverted about sleeping with several women all desperate and pathetic enough to be the wife of this outright ignorant prick.

    "Pervert" in spanish means "pervertido"…obviously this American born Venezuelan had no idea what he was saying, English is just too much for him….idiot.

    I'm gay and I agree that the show would just be a lot of sex. Good luck getting that many guys together and expect them to focus on One guy alone. It wouldn't happen.

    He is an ass. He got caught in the latin macho bullshit that a lot of latin men get into. The whole program is crap and I can not beleive people watch watch all these desperate sluts beg for that nice piece of latin meat. Lets face it that is all this program is. I can not believe woman have not pushed this program off the air, it brings woman to a new low and I am shocked woman accept it. Guess that is the reason soap operas have been around so long.

    Funny perez is offended by him saying gay people are more perverted..then you have a middle aged male blogger acting like a 13 year old girl drooling over boys half his age, drawing hearts around their peens..basically acting like a perv..LOL
