Bachelor uses term 'pervert' for gays
Juan Pablo Galavis tells online site The TV Page that he didn't think a gay bachelor would set a good example for kids. Galavis also says in the Friday interview that gays are "more pervert in a sense," but says he could be mistaken.
Galavis posted an apology on his Facebook page Saturday, saying he respects gay people, has gay friends and misused the word "pervert" because English is his second language, after Spanish.
ABC called his comments "careless, thoughtless and insensitive" and not representative of those of the network or show.
Another reality show, "Duck Dynasty," recently dealt with a cast member's anti-gay remarks.
