Jay Leno Explains Why He Won’t Tell Trans Jokes Anymore

Comedian Jay Leno explained why he won’t ever tell another transgender joke again and said it has everything to do with a staffer on his former late-night show.

During the latest “Club Random with Bill Maher” podcast, Maher and the former host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” explained that a crew member had been hurt by a transgender joke he had told during a broadcast.

“When I got The Tonight Show, I hired the best producer I could, the best director, who I thought were the best writers,” the comedian explained. “I gave them contracts on a yearly basis, not 13 weeks. I said, ‘Do the best you can.’ And we had the same crew for 22 years.”
