Adam Carolla on His Anti-Gay Comments: I'm Comedian, Not Politician

Responding to the some sort of apology the former 'Loveline' co-host offers, Herndon Graddick of GLAAD says, 'Atacking people who are different from him is just a regular part of Carolla's routine.'

Adam Carolla has landed in hot water with LGBT media watchdog groups. The former "Loveline" co-host was accused by GLAAD of "gross intolerance" for the offensive comments he made on his recent podcast for "The Adam Carolla Show". Afterward, he issued some sort of apology.

Through his representative, the 47-year-old told EW, "I'm sorry my comments were hurtful." Still, he added, "I'm a comedian, not a politician." GLAAD has since responded to the half-hearted apology by issuing a statement that continues to berate the radio host.

"Adam Carolla has a history of making anti-LGBT and racist statements," Herndon Graddick, the organization's senior director of media programs, pointed out. "Networks and advertisers should remember that attacking people who are different from him, and following it with empty apologies, is just a regular part of Carolla's routine."

In his rant last Thursday, August 11, Adam commented that LGBT people should "shut up" about equality because they are "ruining his life". He also said that members of the LGBT community should just call themselves "Yuck". He followed it up with a question, "When did we start giving a s**t about these [transgender] people?"

Reacting to Adam's remark, Herndon said in a press release, "Given his history of anti-gay and racist comments, networks and advertisers should know what their money is supporting if they choose to hire Adam Carolla." He added, "The gross intolerance that he tries to pass off as comedy should not have a place on our airwaves."
