VIDEO – Jim Carrey Calls Out Letterman Over His "Gay" Questions: "No offense Dave, for god’s sakes, have you ever seen a gay man?"

Last Friday night, Jim Carrey appeared on Late Night with David Letterman to promoter his upcoming (FINALLY TO BE RELEASED AFTER ALL THESE UMPTEENTH MONTHS)  film I Love You Phillip Morris, Jim Carey called David Letterman on his asinine line of questioning.

Asked Dave: “And, in terms of a leading man, a heterosexual playing a homosexual, do homosexuals say ‘well, that shouldn’t have been a homosexual’ or do you worry about your image as a heterosexual leading man playing a homosexual?”

Replied Carrey: “Boy, we haven’t grown at all, have we? We haven’t grown at all…. We’re still children in the schoolyard. Honestly. No offense Dave, for god’s sakes, have you ever seen a gay man? Are there gay people in Indiana? Is it ok to be gay there, is what I’m asking. There’s not a policy against gay people there or here?”

ONLY Jim Carrey could put David Letterman in his place and make him look uncomfortable

The “reading down” begins at the 4:30 mark in the video below
