MEA CULPA

Carson Daly Sorry for Antigay Joke

Carson Daly apologized Thursday for saying on his radio show earlier in the week that gay passengers would not have been able to deal with the JetBlue pilot who broke down midflight. That hasn’t let him off the hook with everyone, though. The mother of Mark Bingham, a passenger onboard Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, said her gay son didn’t hesitate when hijackers took over his aircraft. “No one among his pick-up team of fellow passengers was asking, ‘Are you straight? Are you gay?’” Bingham’s mother wrote in a letter to TMZ. “The world has its share of strong, heroic gay men.”
