Hugh Grant Slammed For Gay Jokes

Famous british actor Hugh Grant was invited by the BBC to the commentary box for a half-time chat during a rugby game. He made some gay jokes that have created controversy.

The Sun reports:

He told BBC1 viewers he played rugby at school, adding: “I discovered it hurt less if you tackled hard than if you tackled like a queen.”

Some fans condemned Hugh’s remarks on Twitter.

Edward A. E. wrote: “Nice bit of old-school homophobia from him that, wasn’t it?”

Will Full said Hugh would not dare to make the comment in front of gay Welsh rugby ace Gareth Thomas.

A BBC spokesman said: “We apologise for any offence his comments may have caused.”
