Bill Corbett: Repeat Offender: ME (part II)

billcorbett:

First and foremost: I’m sorry. I don’t want to bury the lede here.

But let me back up for people who don’t know what I’m talking about..

A few days ago on Twitter, I posted these two things in quick succession:

1) My son got a Transformer for his 5th birthday and named him “Tranny.”

please and thank you bill is not trying to hurt people’s feelings he is just an old man in comedy who used a term which to our generation is offensive and he did not realize that was the case. because he is old. 

also he was quoting his son’s name for a toy transformer. which happened to be tranny.

little less hate his way please
