A star of US television series ‘The Bachelor’, has caused a stir by saying he didn’t think gay people should be seen on television because it’s “too hard”.

Former Venezuelan football player and single dad Juan Pablo Galavis made the comments in an interview with The TV Page.

“I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV,” he said.

Continuing, he rambled on to say that he thought it was “confusing” for children to have two parents of the same gender.

“Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there [are] fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having… two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense. But I respect them because they want to have kids. They want to be parents. So it is a scale… Where do you put it on the scale? Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody’s desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV.”

He also went on to say that gay people are, “more pervert in a sense.”

Not the first time in recent weeks that a television personality has caused controversy, last week a US host suggested that bisexual men do not exist.

The host of Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, gave a backstage interview for the Bethenny Frankel TV show last week and suggested that bisexual men do not exist, because they’re all gay.
