Recently on THE VIEW Rosie accused Kelly Ripa of a homophobic comment with regards to co-hosting LIVE WITH REGIS AND KELLY with Clay Aiken this past Friday (See the video on YouTube). This morning, Kelly called into THE VIEW to defend her actions to Rosie. Kelly stated, “You have to be more responsible, Not everybody is homophobic.” See the video below.
Firstly, serious kudos to Kelly. She defended her position perfectly and definitely put Rosie in her place. While I’m a huge Rosie fan, in this TV Addict’s opinion, Kelly was 100% in the right here. Rosie definitely jumped the gun on calling out Kelly.
That said, can I just say how much I love YouTube. Whether it’s a funny SNL sketch (a rarity indeed), the brilliant Jon Stewart or irreverent Stephen Colbert — I can always count on YouTube to have that must-see clip from an episode I may have missed. YouTube has not only changed the way we talk about television, it’s helped revitalize the television industry. Clips on YouTube drive traffic to TV, which in this era of a million and one things to do with your time, is a great thing for the medium we all love.
