Jay Leno not only still thinks telling gay jokes on national television is okay, he thinks it’s funny. Here is a transcript of a key moment of the above video, courtesy of Jeff Whitty:
JAY: Can you give me like — say that camera is your gay lover — number two —
PHILLIPPE: Wait a second. Wait a second.
JAY: Can you give me your gayest look? Say that — say that camera is Billy Bob — Billy Bob has just ridden in shirtless from Wyoming.
(Your sycophantic audience hoots with laughter at the idea of a strapping lad like Phillippe giving a “gay look.”)
PHILLIPPE: Wow. That is so something I don’t want to do. Are you just going to embarrass me tonight, or —
JAY: No, I got more stuff. This is the least of it.
UPDATE: Leno has apologized for his remarks after GLAAD got all up in his face.
