  1. Apology not accepted. We all know it is nothing but PR spin to try and save your backside – you don’t mean it in the slightest, you will always be a small-minded, hateful, slightly sweaty-looking homophobe… (erm…who was it again? Never heard of him…)

  2. Adam Carolla said he was a comedian.
    Note the past tense ;)

  3. another kUnT who should know better

    1. Probably spells as well as you too.

  4. What say the LGBT community and allies hit him where it hurts, his pockets?

    1. Wrong target.

  5. Who is he again? Sinking career so he gets his name splattered all over the gay websites. Please he’s nothing but an attention seeker. And I wonder exactly what Chaz Bono thinks of him? I hope Cher kicks his arse next time she sees him!

  6. I’m more worried that his penis talks to him…

    1. That’s his version. Personally, I suspect that it takes one look and shrivels.

    2. I suspect it takes one look and shrivels.

  7. I think it’s the “shut up, you’re ruining my life” bit that really peeved me. Spoken truly from the position of hetero white male privilege. What he said, and how he said it, is no different from a “comic” in the 1960s telling those uppity black folks off for having the nerve to want to sit at the front of the bus. If he wants to talk about ruined lives, asks those US citizens who – in this, the second decade of the 21st century – can still be fired for being gay, or have a tenancy revoked, or refused the power to adopt their partner’s kid to gain parental rights, or be refused visitation and be denied standard next of kin rights that heteros take for gramnted… THAT is having your life ruined. What a moron.

  8. Well it worked for Jeremy Clarkson.

    1. I’m not a fan of Adam Carolla. I don’t think he’s funny. I’m not going to watch him whether he says stuff like this or not, or whether he apologizes or not. That said, I’m not a fan of censorship. Let him say what he wants. Let them all say what they want. At least then we know who the jerks are. I don’t care who says what. I care about what’s in the constitutional amendments and what rights I have or don’t have as a gay man. I agree he’s a moron. I agree he’s an ignorant bigot. So let him say what he wants about me, I’ll say that about him, and we’re even, and now I can continue focusing on fighting for my rights and not worry about some ignoramus who said stupid things.

      1. well said. Approval cannot be legislated. Decades after the civil rights movement, some White people are still being disdained for marrying Blacks. It is civil rights that matter, not opinions, no matter how vile, unless they result in a crime!

        1. But the more people say things like this the more it becomes acceptable in society, it is offensive and therefor should be treated the same way as if he said what he said about black people.

    Carolla must have been the big mouth bully in high school who never grew up.

  10. I for one will be glad to see him go the way of Anita Bryant. You can’t shout fire in a crowded theater because of the danger its poses and he shouldn’t be able to spread some of his hateful homophobic speech because it fosters violence against GLBT people. There are hundreds of comedians who make fun of gays and tell gay jokes but they don’t go over the line as this creep does. Lets hope that he is history and we’ll never see his dumb ass again.

  11. Never heard of him and hopefully will never hear of him again!

    1. ditto

      1. Me either.

    This idiotic nutjob is a parody of a human being, just like the vile Frankie Boyle this side of the pond and like Boyle will be ancient history in five minutes time. These hate filled creatures are best ignored like a fart in an elevator.

    1. That is actually quite hard to ignore.

  13. That faggot has to prove he not gay. It’s always the same

    1. and you’re using homophobic language because….?

  14. Yet another story about an unknown American being homophobic. Why does PN give them publicity?
