UK host Jonathan Ross Under Fire for Homophobic Remark
Radio 2 host Jonathan Ross has been criticized for remarks he made during a show on Saturday when he made jokes about prizes in a Miley Cyrus 'Hannah Montana' contest.
The Press Association reports: "A spokeswoman for Ofcom was unable to say how many people had complained but said: 'We have had complaints. We are assessing those complaints against the broadcasting code.' ... A BBC spokeswoman said: 'The BBC has received four complaints about Jonathan's comments on Saturday's show. However, these off-the-cuff remarks were made purely in jest and were not intended to be offensive. Jonathan is not homophobic in any sense and never meant for his comments to be taken seriously.'"
