Fox News Mocks Gay Pride Parade with Old Jokes, Stereotypes (Video)
Last night, the Fox News show "The O'Reilly Factor" mocked the recent San Francisco LGBT pride parade by airing a segment of recycled old jokes and stereotypes about gay people.
The segment entitled "Watters' World" featured O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters asking gay people goofy questions, which were edited in with sound effects and clips from films, notes MediaMatters.org (video below).
Watters told California State Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), who is gay, that his "pants look a little tight" and warned another gay pride participant to "behave" himself.
"Are you guys sure you don’t like girls?" Watters asked two men dressed as women, noted Uproxx.com.
Watters also asked a man dressed in shorts, "I'm gonna go out on a limb, you look a little promiscuous."
"Can I have a straight pride parade if I wanted to?" Watters asked another parade goer.
"Do you want a gay president?" Watters asked a woman.
"Hell yeah, [and] a gay world," the woman said, which ended up as the headline of the story on FoxNews.com.
At the end of the segment, Watters told O'Reilly that he had not been "assaulted" by any gay pride parade attendees.
