Well, that slur certainly gets right to the heart of it, so to speak. What exactly is Mika suggesting? That gay people are not patriotic (or sumpin)? Or is it just anyone she doesn’t like is a butt-boy?
There is a certain amount of dead air that follows that, so maybe they tried to kill Mika’s mic?
Anyway, the inevitable Twitter apology:
Totally agree with you -SUPER BAD choice of words .. I should have said “water boy”… like for football teams or something like that.. apologize to @SenatorDurbin too! SO SORRY! https://t.co/zIqsGdK3Tk

Well, uh, at least she doesn’t include the obligatory to whomever I offended bit, but she also doesn’t say anything about why it was wrong, and gosh, to apologize to Dick Durbin is kinda missing the object of your slur.
