Comedian Margaret Cho on Thursday explained why she is willing to out actor John Travolta as gay.

In May, while performing her stand up act in Australia, Cho called Travolta “so gay.”

“He's not just gay. He doesn't just like men. He is like Oscar Wilde gay, like Lord Byron gay. That kind of crazy, incredibly flamboyant gay,” she told her audience.

Cho defended the joke in an interview with HuffPost Live host John Zepps, saying that such a revelation shouldn't hurt Travolta's established career.

“I don't think that John Travolta is in any danger of bullying,” Cho said. “I really think that he's somehow protected by just the sheer number of years he's been here. I think when you're an older person like that you can sort of hold your own in a playground. Maybe.”

“What would it hurt” for a seasoned celebrity to come out gay?

“Does it like hurt their legacy? I don't think so,” she said.

“I'm just disappointed also that Liberace never came out of the closet. And that he always tried to maintain this position that he was attracted to older women. When I know that that glitter blind semen-reddened eye had never come to rest on a vagina in his entire piano life.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
