Adam Carolla in Hot Water With GLAAD for LGBT Comments — Again
GLAAD is once again speaking out against Adam Carolla for his harmful remarks against the LGBT community.
In a recent podcast, Carolla went on a tirade about transgendered people, asking, "When did we start giving a sh-- about these people?" He went on to say that the LGBT community should "shut up" about speaking out for equality because they are "ruining his life." He also said members of the LGBT community should drop the acronym LGBT (which stands for "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender") and instead use "YUCK."

"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," said Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD. "The gross intolerance that he tries to pass off as comedy should not have a place on our airwaves."
This isn't Carolla's first time going up against GLAAD. Two years ago, on the "Loveline" radio program, which Carolla co-hosted with Dr. Drew Pinsky, the shock jock told listeners that gay parents are "not as good as" straight parents.
On Monday, Carolla offered a half-hearted apology. "I'm sorry my comments were hurtful," he told TMZ.com. "That being said, I'm a comedian, not a politician."
