Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the talents of Chris Hardwick:
The April 28 edition of “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick” featured a comedian no one ever heard of, Jo Koy. He showed his brilliance by making a gratuitous remark about a priest who “put his hands up my ass.”
On the April 19th edition, Hardwick said if “you get fired for a raft of sexual harassment charges, you can always find a job in the Catholic Church.”
I didn’t address the April 19 smear after it happened, but now that the show is libeling Catholicism again, it is worth mentioning.
Hardwick obviously has a problem with sexuality, and an obsession with the scatological. Perhaps—this is just a guess—it has something to do with his own experiences: his multimillion dollar home in Hollywood Hills features an outdoor mosaic tile bath with a 200-year-old faucet.
Hardwick went into rehab after his serious bout with alcoholism. Now it’s time he sought more serious help.
