Leo Laporte Laments the Loss of Casual Homophobia


Guest SubmissionAn anonymous tipster sent in this video from the most recent The Tech Guy. In it, Leo appears to lament the loss of casual homophobia. At the least, he doesn’t seem to have much of a problem with it.

For a normal person in 2016, this would be surprising, but for Leo Laporte, it’s par for the course. Nathan — the iHeartMedia producer — plays a song containing the word “faggot” three times in a row during an intro to a The Tech Guy segment. Leo notes that it “used to be OK to say that.”

Leo makes insensitive gay jokes on air on a regular basis. He purged many staffers for questionable reasons. He even drove Jeff Needles away.

Will the depths to which he will sink never end?
