Look, one of my cousin's gay and i love him dearly.
Again that wasn't a homophobic statement. I just added "gay" to further highlight the fact that Steve and Andy Rubin are two very different indivuduals.. and i admit, maybe i added "gay" to be funny.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tim Cook and he's gay ok??? so don't accuse me of being homophobic.
All this explanation and yet you can't bring yourself to retract the derogatory statement. Look, I'll show you - I shouldn't have written that.
See how easy it is?
