Jerry Lewis Apologizes For Using Anti-Gay Slur

Jerry Lewis has apologized for calling an audience member at the Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon a "faggot." The incident only happened last night, live on television, but found its way online this morning and on cable news this afternoon. Lewis' apology comes after comments from GLAAD president Neil G. Giuliano in a press release issued this morning.

Lewis issued a statement later in the day through organisers of the telethon saying he was sorry "to anyone who was offended."

"I obviously made a bad choice of words. Everyone who knows me understands that I hold no prejudices in this regard," he said.

"The success of the (telethon) and all the good that will come from it shouldn't be lost because of one unfortunate word. I accept responsibility for what I said. There are no excuses. I am sorry."
