All the way back in the 90′s Jerry Falwell, an evangelical fundamentalist, said he was positive that the purple Teletubby was gay.
Here’s what he said exactly:
“He is purple – the gay pride color; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle – the gay-pride symbol. Role modelling the gay lifestyle is damaging to the moral lives of children.”
The lady that played the yellow Teletubbies called Laa-Laa is saying that none of the Teletubbies were gay.
Here’s what she said regarding the former ignorant statements:
“I think it’s embarrassing for the people who said it. What kind of person can take the obvious innocence and turn it intosomething else? We were hardly sexual beings.”
During her ten years as Laa-Laa, the BBC popular show fought rumours of gay undertones.
