Some of his best friends are gay ...

but rapper Warren G doesn't want kids "watching that shit". From an interview in Vanity Fair:
Wait, what? You had me until the “I ain’t against the gays” part.

I ain’t against gay people. I’m just against it being promoted to kids.

I’m sorry, I don’t follow. What does the recession have to do with gay propaganda?

I know people that’s gay. My wife’s got friends that are gay. I got family that’s gay. Cousins and shit. He cool as fuck. He cool as a motherfucker. He’s my homie. I just mean that on some of these TV shows, they got dudes kissing. And kids are watching that shit. We can’t have kids growing up with that.

So you’ve got a “pot leads to heroin” theory about Hollywood homosexuality? Today there are men kissing on network TV, and tomorrow Grey’s Anatomy is all about mouth rape?

I know it happens, but let’s keep it behind the scenes. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with it if that’s what two dudes wanna do. Cool. But that’s not bring that out into the world, where the kids can see that. We don’t want all the kids doing that. ‘Cause that ain’t how we was originally put here to do. Like I said, I ain’t got no problem with the gays.

Incidentally, Mr. G is a Democrat and a big supporter of Barack Obama. Here's a video of the song "Mr. President" which he wrote and recorded during the 2008 presidential campaign:

Wait, straight couples aren't allowed to kiss on TV? Can gay couples hold hands? Can straight couples hold hands?

What ridiculous nonsense.
