The Daily Show's Lewis Black has taken a swipe at Keith Ablow's Chaz Bono on Dancing with the Stars comments.

On Thursday's broadcast of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, Black commented on the controversy surrounding Chaz Bono's appearance on the dancing reality show.

Bono, the child of gay icon Cher and the late entertainer-politician Sonny Bono, is the first transgender person to be featured on ABC's Dancing with the Stars

“I'm surprised at the concern,” Black says, “because nobody seemed to have any trouble explaining the dancing alcoholic [referring to David Hasselhoff], the dancing pornographer's concubine [Holly Madison] … the dancing convicted money launderer [Tom DeLay] … the dancing sleaze peddler [Jerry Springer]. … and this douchebag in the bow tie [Tucker Carlson].”

“What makes Chaz Bono more controversial than a bunch of criminals and freaks?” Black rhetorically asks before playing a clip with Dr. Keith Ablow.

“Do you really believe that children are going to turn transgender from watching Chaz Bono,” Fox News' Megyn Kelly asks.

“Yes,” Ablow responds. “It's possible that if someone is celebrated and lifted to heroic proportions to that of a civil rights leader, that someone who is somewhat uncomfortable with his or her gender might say, 'You know what? I'm going down that road.'”

“I don't know if letting your kids watch Chaz Bono will turn them into transsexuals, but I'm pretty sure letting them watch Keith Ablow will turn them into assholes,” Black says.
