Remember "Teletubbies," the British children's show featuring four colorful, squishy humanoids with TVs on their guts? And remember how there was a purple one named Tinky Winky that the late Pastor Jerry Falwell in 1999 accused of being a little... gay?
"He is purple - the gay-pride color; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle - the gay-pride symbol," Falwell wrote in an article at the time. He later clarified in a statement, "As a Christian I feel that role modeling the gay lifestyle is damaging to the moral lives of children."
The true sexuality of Tinky Winky has been a mystery ever since that era of darkness but now we have irrefutable proof that none of the Teletubbies were homosexual.
Nikky Smedley, who played yellow-suited Laa-Laa, spoke out to rubbish claims smash hit children's show Teletubbies was laced wih gay innuendo.
She said: "I think it's embarrassing for the people who said it.
"What kind of person can take the obvious innocence and turn it into something else? We were hardly sexual beings."
