Jay Leno has again stirred up some folks’ ire with his recent interview with Ryan Phillipe in which he harangued the actor to show off his “gayest look” referring to a soap opera role earlier in the actor’s career. Despite repeated requests, Phillipe denied Leno the pleasure.
As a result, the web has been flooded with a flock of flippin’ birds for Jaybird Leno as netizens display their “gayest look” at the site My Gayest Look.
Pic after pic and some artists’ renderings have been added to the site to emote the dismay at the late night comedian’s repeated homophobic humor. I’ve spotted some familiar names, a famous name and a popular cat among the flippers.
Freedom of speech goes both ways.
HT to Newscoma.
UPDATE: Leno has released a public mea culpa, saying, “I certainly didn’t mean any malice. I agree it was a dumb thing to say, and I apologize.”
