Jon Stewart on Atlanta Braves pitching coach’s anti-gay flap

Jon Stewart takes on Roger McDowell anti-gay flap

Last night on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” host Jon Stewart highlighted several recent LGBT news issues, including the recent anti-gay remarks from Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell aimed at fans over Easter weekend in San Francisco. Stewart has been all over the gaydar this week.

McDowell was suspended for the incident but will return to the dugout this Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Braves were 7-4 during McDowell's suspension, in case you were wondering.

Stewart took the obvious route and poked fun at attorney Gloria Allred and her interesting press conference with John Quinn, the man who alleged McDowell made anti-gay remarks and threatening gestures directed toward him and another group of men. The segment was funny nonetheless.
