It’s been barely a month since 15-year old Lawrence King was shot in the head for being gay. Now, it’s been a very long time since I stayed up for the Late Night Talk Shows, but I know they are still stomping grounds for “edgy” and “provocative” comics. Unfortunately, they’re also still full of morons: in this case, Conan O’Brien and his guest Harland Williams. The hatefulness and stupidity of their “joke” is all the more obvious when contrasted with Ellen Degeneres’ comments in the video below.
h/t to Sara at Suburban Lesbian Housewife for this one. As she says:
Call NBC. Contact the Conan O’Brien show.
Better yet? Send 25 bucks to GLAAD.
And the next time you hear a gay joke? Put in the word “nigger” and see if it flies.
It isn’t funny.
