Jason Alexander Apologizes For Gay Comment — Learned a Lesson
Troubled celebrities everywhere should take a note from Jason Alexander about how to publicly apologize for foot-in-mouth syndrome. After calling cricket a gay sport during his Craig Ferguson appearance, he issued an apology to the gay community, saying, “I should know better. My daily life is filled with gay men and women, both socially and professionally. I am profoundly aware of the challenges these friends of mine face and I have openly advocated on their behalf. . . . I can only apologize and I do. In comedy, timing is everything. And when a group of people are still fighting so hard for understanding, acceptance, dignity and essential rights – the time for some kinds of laughs has not yet come. I hope my realization brings some comfort.” Good job, Jason. And in honor of his revelation, I’ve posted a vintage clip from Seinfeld’s “Not-That-There’s-Anything-Wrong-With-That” episode. That show sure was good.
