Jason Alexander Apologizes for Calling Cricket 'Gay'
Actor Jason Alexander, in a sticky wicket after calling cricket "a gay game" on CBS's "Late Late Show," apologized Sunday.
Having come under fire from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against
Defamation and other groups, the former star of TV's "Seinfeld" said
that as an actor with many gay friends, he should known better.
"My daily life is filled with gay men and women, both socially and professionally," he said in a blog statement released
through GLAAD. "I am profoundly aware of the challenges these friends
of mine face and I have openly advocated on their behalf. So, I can only
apologize and I do. In comedy, timing is everything."
Alexander's remarks came in Friday's show in which he told host Craig
Ferguson that aspects of cricket make it a "gay game" compared to other
"It's the pitch," Alexander told Ferguson. "It's the weirdest… It's
not like a manly baseball pitch; it's a queer British gay pitch."
