Lance Bass Drops the T-Word: What T-Word?
While hosting “Access Hollywood Live” this morning Lance Bass suggested to Billy Eichner, a comic promoting his show “Billy On the Street” (in which Eichner quizzes unsuspecting people in New York) that a fantastic place for surprise interviews would be “Christopher and Hudson (to) get those trannies on the corner there — that would be perfect,” Hollywood Reporter has a video of the gaffe (below).
In response to Bass, Eichner agreed, saying “I love a tranny.” He suddenly realized the mistake. “We’re not supposed to call them trannies anymore. Did you see that Neil Patrick Harris called them a tranny on Twitter?”
“Oh, no?,” Bass replied. “Great, now I’m going to get in trouble.” He added that he “didn’t get the memo.”
