DAVID DUCHOVNY RAISED EYEBROWS AT OUTFEST
Outfest held the Legacy Awards last night (a benefit to preserve gay and gay related film) and David “Californication” Duchovny was a presenter. According to a witness, he attended the event with his 8 year old daughter Madelaine and she waited in the audience when he went onstage. While he was onstage it was announced that they were about to show clips of gay moments in cinema through the years. David deadpanned “Can someone please cover my daughter’s eyes and ears?” The audience didn’t laugh – they were wide-eyed and offended. They asked each other “Did he really say that?” They were annoyed because the clips were no more sensational than clips at ANY award show – there was nothing potentially offensive. Did they overreact or was Duchovny insensitive? David left right away, apparently unaware of the stir.
