Case closed: Former Teletubby says Teletubbies weren't gay

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."

Thank God. Finally, some closure.
