(AP) LOS ANGELES - Actor Jason Alexander has apologized for joking during a TV talk show that he considers cricket to be a "gay" sport.
In a blog post, the former "Seinfeld" star explained Sunday what led to his remark on CBS's Late Late Show. He writes that he at first didn't grasp why some might object to the comment, but that subsequent conversations with his gay friends led him to realize his insensitivity.
Alexander's remarks came in Friday's show in which he tells host Craig Ferguson that aspects of cricket make it a "gay game" compared to other sports..
This is not true. Cricket is not "gay." It is, however, incomprehensible. They're sort of making the rules up as they go along.
So Alexander misspoke. According to this collection of clips from Seinfeld, it was by no means an uncommon event.
