I remember watching this. I was 14. It was 1991 I think. It must have been a weekend or summer time other wise I would have never seen it. But I remember being in front of the tube watching him blast them.

get it. he shoulda kicked those mofos out

I believe this was a few weeks before the show was cancelled.


No...I think Arsenio was going strong another year or two after this show. The only reason why I really remember it so much is because our house burned down in 1990. I remember watching that episode in the town home we had to live in while rebuilding the house. And still watching it up to 1993 while in our rebuilt home.

...traumatic experiences caused me to remember everything very vividly back then.

What Arsenio should've said was that he himself "dip un de odda side". Everybody in L.A. knows Arsenio is bi, and had a man living with him.

Must have been 1993 because one of the last shows I saw from Arsenio Hall had a brand-new solo Snoop Doggy Dogg on it. (He's not gay either mad )

Gus Van Sant could have been on Arsenio a few years later.

I'm glad he didn't ask Arsenio Hall "How come you don't have any Australian guest??"

I like how Arsenio is addressing the Queer Nation, but really it is a guy wearing a t-shirt that reads "QUEER NATION".

Where YOU been? Arsenio's show ran from 1989 until May 1994. Five full seasons.

More from Wikipedia:
During a May 1991 taping, Hall lost his composure when three or four members of the gay-activist faction Queer Nation that were seated in the back rows—apparently offended because Hall's producers failed to book Gus Van Sant to promote his gay-themed film My Own Private Idaho— interrupted Hall's opening monologue by shouting questions as to why he never had any "gay" guests on his show. The heated exchange went on for several minutes, with Hall defending his position as host and arguing that he'd had plenty of gay people as guests.

Arsenio was the worst show on television. Thank god it was cancelled. Even Jay Leno is better and that show sucks too.

He was a comedian but he wasn't funny. He also gave horrible interviews. What kind of comment is "I'm not gonna run away from it like Johnny - I'll deal with it."?

And what kind of comment is "I'm black" or "Go ask Johnny"?

Sounds like he was jealous of Johnny maybe because Johnny was King?

He handled the entire incident the wrong way. I watched that show too and don't remember that airing. Could be they edited that out. Then it showed up on a dvd extra or something.

But who can forget Chunky A?

eek

I saw that live.


At that time Queer Nation was showing up to various talk shows, and Arsenio was having none of that lol




But the experience affected Arsenio deeply because over the course of the next several months, Arsenio actually had 'out' gay and lesbians guests (a comedian who wasn't the least bit funny appeared and did 'dyke humor' lol) to show that he was inclusive.

I applaud Arsenio. He really took the experience to heart and was very inclusive of gays and lesbians.


But I sided with Arsenio during this exchange for sure. lol

And Queer Nation is an extremist group. At least back then they were. They were out for the publicity of it more than really helping the gay movement.

It happened May 1991.
