"We live in a time where gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals find courage every day to overcome adversity, stand up to bullying and find equality. I'm truly saddened that my words today suggested otherwise. I've long been a supporter of Gay and Lesbian rights, and I'm saddened that my comments, however unintentional, offended anyone, specifically members of the LGBT community. The fact that I have hurt anyone is devastating. I'm not that guy. I'm proud to be an ally of the LGBT community and will continue to fight with them."

-- Carson Daly in a statement to GLAAD after the comedian made a gay joke on air. Sure, there was some stereotyping in the joke but, for the most part, it was just funny. I understand the need for outrage at the truly offensive, but this was a tempest in a teapot.
