Lance Bass Forgives TV's 'Bachelor', Still Thinks 'He's Cute'

Lance Bass forgives TV's Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis for saying that gays are "perverted" and therefore a gay-themed version of The Bachelor would not set a "good example" for children, the Miami Herald reports:

Bass"I don't hate him at all. I still think he's cute...Of course it's disappointing, because you don't want someone who (you) actually love to have those thoughts.

Bass says Galavis was brainwashed by his Venezuelan culture:

"When you grow up in a place like that, you get brainwashed into thinking that way, you know, you can't help what you grow up with...I mean, I grew up in Mississippi, so I know how people can get brainwashed into thinking really, really awful things. So hopefully, he will learn from this and get educated."

Galavis has since apologized twice for his remarks and will be meeting with GLAAD and gay families.


TV's Bachelor Continues Damage Control Over Anti-Gay Remarks, Will Meet with GLAAD, Gay Families

TV's Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis spoke with GLAAD yesterday and is planning a standard dog and pony show to make amends for his anti-gay remarks.

2jp_galavisSaid Galavis to GLAAD:

"I have heard from many gay Latinos today who are hurt because of what I said and I apologize. I know gay parents and I support them and their families. They are good parents and loving families. I am a father and I know the feel of being a father, why wouldn't I want my gay friends to also be happy parents? I also want gay and lesbian youth to know that it is fine to be who you are. Gay or straight, Black or White, Latin or American, what matters here is to respect who we are. I look forward to meeting with gay and lesbian families as well as Monica [Trasandes, GLAAD's Director of Spanish-Language and Latino Media] and Wilson [Cruz] from GLAAD. Gay and lesbian people, and the children they are raising, wrongfully face discrimination and I want them to know that I'm on their side."

Galavis said in an interview that gays are "perverted" and therefore a gay-themed version of The Bachelor would not set a "good example" for children.

ABC has tried to distance itself from the remarks and released a statement: "Juan Pablo’s comments were careless, thoughtless and insensitive, and in no way reflect the views of the network, the show’s producers or studio."

TV's 'Bachelor' Juan Pablo Galavis Tries to Apologize for Anti-Gay Remarks

TV's 'Bachelor' Juan Pablo Galavis posted a sort of apology on his Facebook page after an interview was published in which he said there shouldn't be a gay version of The Bachelor because it would not be a "good example" for children. He also suggested gay people are "perverted".

Jp_galavisGalavis's statement:

People,

I want to apologize to all the people I may have offended because of my comments on having a Gay or Bisexual Bachelor. The comment was taken out of context. If you listen to the entire interview, there's nothing but respect for Gay people and their families. I have many gay friends and one of my closest friends who's like a brother has been a constant in my life especially during the past 5 months. The word pervert was not what I meant to say and I am very sorry about it. Everyone knows English is my second language and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish and, because of this, sometimes I use the wrong words to express myself. What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense and for a segment of the TV audience this would be too racy to accept. The show is very racy as it is and I don't let my 5 year old daughter watch it. Once again, I'm sorry for how my words were taken. I would never disrespect anyone.

Sinceramente,

Juan Pablo Galavis.


Juan Pablo Galavis: Gay Version of 'The Bachelor' Would Not Be 'a Good Example for Kids' - AUDIO

Galavis

Juan Pablo Galavis, TV's 'Bachelor', was asked by Sean Daly at The TV Page what he would think about producers creating a gay version of the show.

Says Galavis:

"I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV."

Galavis then points out a manager or pr person at the interview named Peter, noting that Peter is gay and he respects him but still can't fathom two men doing the same thing that a man and woman do.

Continues Galavis:

"...Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having people. Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed. It is confusing in a sense. But I respect them because they want to have kids. They want to be parents. So it is a scale. Where do you put it on the scale?  Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody’s desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV."

Finally, to sum up his remarks, Galavis calls gay people "more pervert in a sense."
