The Young Turks co-host Cenk
Uygur has accused Rebecca Romijn of kicking him off the interview
circuit for asking her a gay question.
During a segment on the upcoming
X-Men and DC
Comics gay storylines with co-host Ana Kasparian, Uygur
said that asking Romijn about the X-Men character Mystique's sexual
orientation landed him in hot water with Romijn, who is best known
for playing the character in four films since 2000.
“In an interview I asked her, 'Hey
how do you feel about the comic book character originally being
lesbian.' And she answered, you know, curtly, and I'll say, somewhat
politely. And then she … kicked me off the interview circuit.”
“Did she really?” Kasparian asked
with a gasp.
“Yeah,” Uygur confidently replied.
“That's awesome,” Kasparian added.
“She's like, 'How dare this guy ask
me about an inappropriate question.' What's so inappropriate about
it? In the comic book, she's a lesbian, I asked you about it.”
