'John Travolta is so gay': Margaret Cho causes controversy as she brands her Face/Off co-star 'gay' in comedy routine





She is no stranger to causing controversy but Margaret Cho certainly shocked audiences on her recent Australian tour.

The comedienne decided to use John Travolta’s sexuality as the brunt of several of her jokes.

Cho, who starred with Travolta in the 1997 movie Face/Off, branded the married actor ‘gay’ several times during her routine.

‘I’m going to get in trouble but I’ll just tell you,’ she said to the crowd. ‘He is so gay. John Travolta is so gay.’

But Cho, who is openly bisexual and a gay rights activist, didn’t stop there.

‘He’s not just gay. He doesn’t just like men,’ she said. ‘He is like Oscar Wilde gay… like Lord Byron gay.

‘That kind of crazy, incredibly
flamboyant gay… I feel bad for him; because I know he would be much
happier if he could just come out. But he can’t.’


Cho,
44, then proceeded to describe what it was like to act beside the
59-year-old on Face/Off, after claiming they spent a year together
working on the action thriller.


‘It was a weird movie because the way that he worked on it was John Travolta, he can only work 10 hours a day,’ she said.

‘And part of the 10 hours is
him flying his plane to the location and flying home. So essentially he
only had to work like five hours a day.’


She
went on: ‘He was so pampered and so taken care of, it was the closest I
have ever been to being in the presence of a king,’ before adding, ‘Or a
queen,  actually.’


Cho ended her segment with the words: ‘But I felt bad for him because he was so gay and couldn’t be out about it.’

Travolta,
who has been married to Kelly Preston since 1991, had two sexual
harassment lawsuits filed against him last year by male masseurs, both
of which were eventually dropped.
