Air Date: 03/14/17
"Beauty and the Beast" film director confirms Josh Gad's character, LeFou, is gay, which has some people upset. Aisha Tyler, whose sister is gay says, "There are gay people on this planet. Get used to it...This isn't a new social commentary. It's representing the world as it actually is." Sara Gilbert adds, "The fact that the person took it as a social commentary I thought was so odd and showed so much homophobia. It's not a commentary. It's just plotline. It's just real...it's not as if there's two men making out like crazy on screen... whatever the tone is should be appropriate for children and it seems completely appropriate."
