(AP) – Just as the dust appeared to have settled on the Phil Robertson controversy, the list of people offended by Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments continues to increase. After receiving harsh criticism from GLAAD and other pro-gay groups, Phil Robertson is now being sued for the statement he made in an interview for GQ magazine. In that interview he stated, “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus.” It is these disparaging remarks that are the focus of the lawsuit.
The lawsuit against Robertson was filed by the American Society of Proctologists. Their spokesman had this to say about the suit: “His comments are deeply offensive to us as a community of respected physicians. It is outright defamation of our entire profession. What is he implying? That we are inferior to gynocologists? That I’m not masculine because I spend most of my day gaily goosing guys? As if. We may never beat those baby doctors in the annual hospital picnic softball tournament, but we definitely look more fabulous in those uniforms with the short shorts, and we always win the karaoke dance off and craft competitions, honey. So I won’t hear any more of this. Phil can just talk to my hand. We have been the butt of jokes for long enough (pun intended, darling), and now that someone wealthy has defamed us, we decided it was time to sue. Hellooooo, Phil. You gonna be my new sugar daddy now.”
When asked to comment, Phil just chuckled, shook his head in disgust and walked away.
