On the heels of Tim Hardaway telling ESPN radio, "I hate gay people," Bill Gates has followed suit, admitting to Larry King: "I hate nerds."
Hardaway was reacting to the news that John Amaechi, former NBA player, is gay. Gates was reacting to the news that he is still considered a nerd, despite the fact that he has billions of dollars and no longer lives with his parents.
On his nightly TV program, King asked Gates, "So, do you ever think you'll stop being called a nerd?" Gates, visibly upset, responded, "Nerd? I hate nerds. I am not in any way, shape, or form a nerd. I'm married, for Pete's sake. I've had SEX, Larry. More than once. And she wasn't drunk. That automatically disqualifies me from being a nerd."
When asked if he had anything to say to the nerds of America, Gates turned to the camera and said passionately, "There's still hope for you. You don't have to spend all your time playing Halo online. There are real girls out there who will actually touch you in places you've only dreamed about, and it doesn't take as much money as you think."
Hardaway, when asked to comment on Gates' remarks said, "Man, dude went over the line. I mean, that's just wrong. By the way, I hate white people."
