Jerry Lewis makes another anti-gay slur

CANBERRA, Australia Jerry Lewis made an anti-gay slur on Australian television similar to one he apologized for using on his annual telethon a year ago.

Following a news conference in Sydney Friday, Lewis, 82, was asked by a Network Ten national TV reporter for his opinion on the Australian nation sport of cricket.

"Oh, cricket? It's a f-- game. What are you, nuts?" Lewis replied.

The network broadcast the comment in full on its Friday evening news bulletin along with footage of Lewis handling an imaginary cricket bat with an effeminate gesture.

well, the asshole has to say SOMETHING obnoxious to get himself in the news - because nobody cares what he thinks/say/does.

Apparently your homosexual comrade cubbie cares.



I wonder how hard he had to search to dig out this alleged 'slur'?



I doubt whether he'd last very long in Australia, they're not very big on political correctness

Very true. I didn't even know he was still alive.
