Mr. T is not a Homophobe



Here you can watch Mr. T defend himself against people who think he might be a homophobe. A snickers commercial that showed Mr T harassing a speedwalker with a candy-shooting gun was pulled from British TV. The ad is in here. The speedwalker's swishing ass is shown, and apparently a lot of gays were up in arms about the implied homophobia of the swish in combination with Mr. T's usual schtick about 'be a real man' and 'get some nuts'. I know of no correlation between speedwalking and gayness. I do find Mr. T's general belligerence distasteful. On the other hand, I love the way Mr. T calls Bill Reilly "Beeul". His dipthong sounds positively east Tennesseean.
