Japanese Actor Beat Takeshi On Gay Marriage: 'You Would Support a Marriage to an Animal Eventually'

Kotaku repots: Beat Takeshi Compares Gay Marriage To Bestiality.

One of Japans best known creators and comedians, Beat Takeshi, is catching heat for remarks he made about gay marriage.When shown footage of people celebrating President Obamas recent gay marriage remarks, Takeshi quipped, "Obama supports gay marriage. You would support a marriage to an animal eventually, then." Um...Takeshi is, first and foremost, a comedian, and this might have been a very poor attempt at humor—though, its certainly not clear this was a joke. I dont think it was. Sure, hes not breaking any law, and hes clearly giving his off hand opinion, which hes entitled to. Some in Japan, however, found his remarks rather disappointing.
