Rupert Everett is known for his colorful quotes. One zinger from his latest interview is already getting the openly gay actor in trouble.
The actor recently shared his thoughts on the notion of growing up with two gay fathers, and the idea hardly sounds appealing to him.
The star of films like “Shakespeare In Love” and “My Best Friend’s Wedding” told the Sunday Times Magazine that he “can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads… Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That’s just my opinion.”
GLAAD quickly responded to Everett’s opinion.
“Since Everett shared his outdated opinion, gay parents, as well as their friends and families, have voiced overwhelming disappointment,” the gay rights organization said in a statement. “Children aren’t hurt when raised by caring gay parents, but they are when uniformed people in the public eye insult their families.”
We’ll have to see if an apology tour will commence.
