Well, you at least have to give Kirk Cameron credit for a very original excuse: in an interview with the Naples News this weekend, Cameron explained that if people were offended by his anti-gay comments in an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan back in March, they have only Piers Morgan to blame:
“If Piers Morgan were truly concerned about the homosexual community, concerned with people being hurt, he could have eliminated that section, like he did many other parts of our conversation.”
Um, WHAT? So it’s Piers Morgan’s job to censor his guest’s hateful and offensive comments – comments that Cameron has repeated to other outlets and that he stands by to this day? It’s not like Kirk Cameron threw up all over himself during the interview (though actually it’s kind of EXACTLY like that) and Morgan chose to leave the accidental humiliating moment in the broadcast out of spite. Cameron said that stuff because he wanted to go on record with it, because that is what people do in televised interviews when they want attention.
I was always more of a Family Ties kid, myself, but this guy really has ruined Growing Pains forever.
