Carson Daly Engages in a Little Anti-Gay Humor On Air
Carson Daly was kind enough to lend his homophobic opinion to the conversation about the Jet Blue pilot who had a mid-flight breakdown on Wednesday. In the middle of a New York to Las Vegas flight, Clayton Osbon had to be restrained by passengers while an off-duty pilot and the co-pilot landed the plane. But according to Daly, had the passengers on that flight been gay, the whole thing would have ended very differently.
"On this partiicular flight, most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas. It was a bunch of dudes, and well trained dudes...If that were me, I mean, my luck? It would be like, 'this is the flight going to Pride in San Francisco.' I mean, that would be my colleagues."
Daly then affected a voice that he apparently thought sounded like a gay person, and added, "We're headed down to Vegas for the floral convention."
Sooo...that happened. Daly later issued this utterly weak apology over Twitter:
"This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize."
