Lambert to Receive On-Air Apology

Lambert to Receive On-Air Apology


The cohost of E!'s Daily 10 Michael Catherwood will apologize on Monday night's show for suggesting that Adam Lambert might enjoy a prison stay because he's gay.

After reporting a brief rundown of Lambert's weekend altercation with a photographer, Catherwood said Friday, "From what I know about jail, Mr. Lambert probably wouldn't have too bad a time."

Lambert reacted to the statement on Twitter.

"It's funny how some folks in the entertainment world echo the fearful ignorance of high school bullies," he wrote. "I suppose jealousy and poor tact are timeless."

Fans quickly notified the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which reached out to E!. Catherwood soon took to Twitter to apologize to Lambert.

"I've always been a vocal supporter of the Gay community," Catherwood wrote on Saturday. "If offense was taken I'm sincerely sorry. Merely an attempt at comedy. My genuine apology to all in the GLBT community as well. Identifying me as homophobic is wrong though. Tasteless yes, but not hateful. I've identified that I misspoke and I sincerely apologize. All I can do is ask for forgiveness. Mike"
