It all started when Pat Robertson, everyone's favorite racist and queer-phobic evangelical, appeared on The 700 Club this past Tuesday.
In the interview, Robertson said...
Lesbians, 1% of the population, homosexuals, 2% of the population, that's all. That's statistically all. They have dominated, dominated the, uh, media. They've dominated the cultural shift. And they have infiltrated the major universities. It's just unbelievable what's being done.
The full interview can be seen here.
Never mind the fact that lesbians are homosexuals. And let's overlook the slightly fudged statistics. There was one person who felt that 'homosexuals dominating' was a good thing — comedian Kathy Griffin. Griffin has basically been in exile since a risque photo shoot involving a certain President. She has revealed her questioning by the FBI and Secret Service, the death threats, and an altogether harrowing part of her life in various interviews over the last few weeks as she has reemerged in the spotlight. But now, it's a tweet that's grabbing everyone's attention.
On Friday, Griffin decided to respond to Robertson:
He doesn't know what he's in for! Being dominated by homosexuals is so fun.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) April 6, 2018
Many people had harsh words for Robertson:
The only thing he’s being “dominated by” is his narrow minded view of the world and his over inflated sense of self within it— Shawn Gleason (@ShawnGleason_25) April 7, 2018
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy... Unfortunately he’s developed the Trumpian craft of refusing to hear anything that challenges his cockamamie worldview.— Patrice Curtin (@CurtinPatrice) April 7, 2018
Others were looking on the bright side of gay domination:
Fuck - I’m gay......I WANT THAT TO BE MY LIFE! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣— Robert Countryman (@RobertinLALA) April 7, 2018
But mostly, people were just there for Kathy Griffin:
Welcome back, Kathy.
