“The Bachelor” star Juan Pablo Galavis apologized on his Facebook page for saying that there shouldn’t be a gay or bisexual “Bachelor” star because it’d be “too hard to watch”, blaming his remarks on a language barrier.

Galavis says that he didn’t mean to call gay people “more pervert,” but meant that a gay version of “The Bachelor” would be “too racy” for TV.

“The word pervert was not what I meant to say and I am very sorry about it. Everyone knows English is my second language and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish and, because of this, sometimes I use the wrong words to express myself,” Galavis posted.  “What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense and for a segment of the TV audience this would be too racy to accept. The show is very racy as it is and I don’t let my 5 year old daughter watch it.”

Galavis went on to say that he has “nothing but respect for gay people and their families” and that his words were taken out of context. Galavis ended his post by saying  “Once again, I’m sorry for how my words were taken. I would never disrespect anyone.”
