ABC has issued a formal response after “Bachelor” star Juan Pablo Galavis said gay people should not be allowed on the show because they’re “more pervert[ed].”

The network, Warner Horizon Television and the “Bachelor” producers said in statement, “Juan Pablo’s comments were careless, thoughtless and insensitive, and in no way reflect the views of the network, the show’s producers or studio.”

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Galavis said in an interview with The TV Page that he was opposed to having gay people on the dating show because “I don’t think it’s a good example for kids to watch that on TV.”

He explained, “There’s this thing about gay people… it seems to me, and I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not… they’re more pervert in a sense.”
