    I love Margaret, but I have not been aware of John Travolta ever being publicly anti-gay, so he did not deserve to be outed. (even though we all knew)

    Not only has Travolta never been antigay, but he has a wife and children who deserve some consideration. Cho's funny, but that doesn't give her the right to wreck families.

    I don't know if she was outing John Travolta... it's not like she brought to public attention an unarguable fact that proves him to be gay. Sounds like she was just making jokes about hm possibly being a closet homosexual, like many comedians do with many celebrities including John Travolta.

    Doesn't the Church of Scientology ban gays?

    Wreck families, lol. Seriously. This has been widely reported for years, and he's been publicly sued by masseurs for sexual assault. It's not a secret.

    I think this may stem from the fact that he and Tom Cruise are both proud members of Scientology. Scientology, like other religions considers homosexuality a perversion.

    I am also not aware of any remarks made by John about gays.

    However, Margaret was rambling a bit in this interview and there was never really any evidence provided of John being gay.

    I am not sure this was actually Margaret outing John. Sounds more like she was going along with all the rumors for the sake of comedy.

    If she outed a non-hypocritical--in the sense of a hypocrisy utilized to harm our community at his benefit as opposed to whatever effect it has on his personal life which is his own business--a non-enemy of the gay people, then she violated the gay code of conduct.

    But I'd be careful about making such a judgment because Hollywood often presents itself purposely. She might have used him in her act with his permission, making it look like a spontaneous outing. She even says in the interview something like, well, he's played str8 for so long, how else would he be able to come out? That could just be her trying to justify her actions or it could hint at conspiracy. It's Hollywood, so, like if it was government, we don't know.

    Even if it's a set up, then Travolta becomes accomplice to promoting the breaking of the gay code of conduct as acceptable. Were that the case, neither would admit it.

    Watching youtube doesn't make a thing true. The show must go on.
