Sitcom`s Gay Joke About Anderson Cooper To Be Cut

Anderson CooperLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – A joke about CNN journalist Anderson Cooper`s purported sexual orientation likely will be dropped from an upcoming U.S. sitcom episode, a report says.
Producers of the ABC sitcom ‘Help Me Help You’ probably will remove a gay joke in which actor Jim Rash`s character refers to the famed TV host, the New York Post said.
‘I`m gay. I`m super gay. And I guess that makes Anderson Cooper gay, too.’ Rash`s character says in the original of the episode, the newspaper said.
Cooper`s sexual orientation has long been the subject of rumors and the famed journalist has refused to respond to such allegations.
‘I just don`t talk about my personal life,’ the 39-year-old CNN star recently told New York Magazine.
Executives from the new sitcom have said the joke likely will be cut before the episode airs, despite the fact that CNN has not filed any formal complaints regarding it, the Post said.
