Author of Broadway's Avenue Q is tired of Jay Leno

Jeff Whitty wrote a letter to Jay Leno to let him know how tired he was of Jay's jokes about gay people.
" I caught your show when you had a tired mockery of "Brokeback Mountain," involving something about a horse done up in what you consider a "gay" way. Man, that's dated. I turned the television off and felt pretty fucking depressed. And now I understand your gay-baiting jokes have continued." You can read the whole letter here. I never thought of Jay as being offensive, I find him funny, but he (as most comics did) just had a field day with Brokeback Mountain material, it did get tiring. Good job Mr. Whitty.

  1. Kudos to that dude for getting the steam to actually write something instead of just grumbling about it. I thought it was good that Jay sat down with him and talked, not apologizing, but looking at it from both sides.

    Yeah, after about 2 days those jokes got really stale really fast.
