Chris Barron, chairman of gay GOP group
GOProud, has said he was joking when he said only gay men are part of
the gay community.
After On Top Magazine posted an
article about Barron's Friday appearance on Fox News' early morning
talk show Red Eye, in which he mocked a viewer's question that
included the inclusive term LGBT, which stands for lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender, the homocon leader took to Twitter to take
a swipe at our story.
“Another humorless gay lefty
publication that apparently has never watched #RedEye,” he messaged
to his more than 3,000 followers.
During the show, Barron was called on
to answer a question from a viewer.
“Will a gay Republican ever be truly
accepted in the LGBT community? Will Bill?” the viewer messaged
the show on Twitter, a reference to host Bill Schulz.
Barron complained, “Why do I get the
gay question?” then added: “Yeah, I think a Republican will be
accepted in the gay community. I don't know about the LGBTQI
whatever community. I don't think Bill's ever going to be accepted.”
He later added: “They're adding
letters to [it] I don't even understand anymore.”
For the record, On Top Magazine
understands Red Eye is a satirical look at the day's news.
However, it's not a rehearsed skit comedy show, and the comments of
their guests are their own.
