CNN's Carol Costello got into it last week during a conversation about the Southern Poverty Law Center-sponsored "Mix It Up Day" with vitriolic homophobe, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association.
Fischer's rhetoric got so outlandish that Costello actually stopped the interview which, of course, triggered Fischer to cry foul calling Costello a member of "the gay gestapo."
Costello responds after the jump!
Carol Costello Addresses Bryan Fischer's Claim That She's A Member Of "The Gay Gestapo"
To fill you in, last week Fischer went on one of his typical homophobic rampages and started spouting nonsense about the "known health risks" associated with homosexuality.
Costello, like Sweet Brown, ain't got time for that and promptly ended the interview, saying, "I'm going to end this interview right here, because that's just not true.
Today she addressed her interview with Fischer on the air, explaining "Yes, I ended that interview." She then revealed that Fischer personally went after her at a luncheon days after their interview.
Fischer called Costello "the gay gestapo" for "cutting his water off just as soon as he started to talk about the health risks of homosexual behavior."
Costello's response: "Well Mr. Fischer, if that's the definition of 'the gay gestapo,' then I am a proud, card-carrying member."
How do you think Costello handled the infamous homophobe, Instincters?
