More Antigay Remarks From Jerry Lewis

Comedian Jerry Lewis, 82 currently in Australia for a stage show that takes a retrospective look at his career, has gone and done it again.  Mr. Lewis after a news conference last Friday, asked to comment on Australia’s most popular sport while miming swinging a cricket bat effeminately, responded: ‘Oh, cricket?  It’s a fag game.’  This comes hard on the heels of his last year’s anti-gay comments made during his annual telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The comment and gesture broadcast on Australian channel Network Ten’s telecast last night has The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Australian Coalition for Equality calling for an apology.
