Billy Crystal wants you to know he isn’t homophobic; he’s just prudish. Or something. The comic got in trouble over comments he made over the weekend about the amount of gay sex on TV being shoved at him. The Internet reaction was swift and predictable, with people tweeting that he was homophobic and out of touch.
Today Crystal, like a true politician, clarified his comments to clear up any misunderstanding. “Now Crystal has clarified his remarks,” reports Vulture, “telling The Hollywood Reporter that all naked people on TV disturb him, not just the gay ones: ‘What I meant was that whenever sex or graphic nudity of any kind (gay or straight) is gratuitous to the plot or story it becomes a little too much for my taste.'”
