Jerry Lewis And The MDA Telethons
Jerry Lewis has used some offensive words in remarks in two of his recent telethon appearances. Using words like "fag" and "faggot". I have not viewed the telethons in some time, but many do and a great many people donate money for a good cause. Jay brought up a good question on one of his blog posts recently on his website at jaysays.com. Now it has developed into a conversation with others in our group as to if Jay should get a petition or some other means of contact going from the LGBT community to the MDA. The MDA has done wonderful work and is involved in a good cause. Therefore, the association should not allow someone like Jerry Lewis to be giving out these negative words on his telethon. Please contact Jay and discuss the matter further about what the community could do to help.
