    Now Alexander is having to apologize for calling the sport of cricket "gay" on a talk show.

    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.."

    If that was part of his stand up routine, he may have what it takes to become part of Shuli's hack pack.

    I guess it's Elaine's turn now to make some comments that get some group all up in arms.

    What an asshole. He has FU money, and shouldn't feel the need to apologize for anything.
