Billy Crystal on TV’s Gay Characters: ‘That’s Too Much for Me’

News alert! Billy Crystal is still alive. He stopped by the Television Critics Association on a press tour for his new FX show, The Comedians. Oh, and also to let America know he doesn’t want penises dangled all up in his face. The Wrap reported on Crystal’s hesitance at watching the gays take over television.

“Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are.”

Crystal didn’t specify what ‘too far’ means. And are we talking about cable or broadcast TV? Ironic since Crystal played a gay character on Soap in the late 1970s. He didn’t mind pushing it into the far-conservative faces of the television audience back then. If it weren’t for homosexuals, it’d be one less acting gig for Crystal. So, in a way, he should get down on his hands and knees and give thanks.
