Do you have that em address? If Mr. Leno is willing to joke publically, I am certain NBC won't mind that we complain about
I have a sense of humor, and I am not overly sensitive about
my disease. But I stand with anyone fighting this disease offended by these "jokes". I have always thought that Mr. Leno was a pretty cool guy, though many of his views are one sided or insensitive. I understand that his business is to make people laugh. And laughter is the best medicine by some views. I did a little research on comments he's made...Here is the information:
In his monologue he stated a scientific study had concluded that the more men master b..e the less likely it is that they get prostate cancer, and then said "Well, if that research is correct, I don't understand why any man ever gets prostate cancer!!"
In a previous joke:
"You remember a couple of years ago Pat Robertson announced he had prostate cancer? You think God was punishing him for being a pain in the ass?"
Someone told me he joked about
Rudy Guiliani's fight with PCa. If anyone can find it, I would appreciate it. For my part, Jay Leno can continue to joke in this manner. As I have always said, any attention, good or misguided, is attention we need. Mr. Leno can make it up to me by putting a serious note on it in support of our efforts when he uses that type of humor.
