Alexander called the popular British sport a "gay game" Friday on the "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." "It's the pitch It's the weirdest... It's not like a manly baseball pitch," Alexander said. "It's a queer, British gay pitch." The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) was not amused, and neither were many people who tweeted Alexander their distaste. The actor soon released a statement to GLAAD, explaining that the joke had been part of his stand-up routine years ago. He also said that after receiving the barrage of tweets, he still "truly did not understand why a gay person would be particularly offended by this routine." Alexander said it was only after talking to friends and dissecting the joke and its implications that he came to understand the error of his ways. "I should know better. My daily life is filled with gay men and women, both socially and professionally.."
