Carson Daly Apologizes for Gay Jokes

Carson Daly says he’s sorry for making jokes about gay people on his L.A. radio show Wednesday (March 28).

“We live in a time where gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals find courage every day to overcome adversity, stand up to bullying and find equality. I’m truly saddened that my words today suggested otherwise,” the 38-year-old Voice host said in a statement to GLAAD.

Carson had been talking about the JetBlue pilot who was restrained by passengers after he had a meltdown on a flight.

Suggesting gay people would not have been able to handle such a dangerous situation, Carson then said, “If that were me … with my luck, it would be like, ‘This is the flight going to the [gay] pride parade in San Francisco,’” mockingly adding, “Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.”

“I’ve long been a supporter of gay and lesbian rights, and I’m saddened that my comments, however unintentional, offended anyone, specifically members of the LGBT community,” Carson added in his statement. “The fact that I have hurt anyone is devastating. I’m not that guy. I’m proud to be an ally of the LGBT community and will continue to fight with them.”
