Billy Crystal had something to say about gay sex scenes on TV.

During a panel interview in Pasadena, the star who played one of the first openly gay characters on TV in the 70s has spoken about gay sex scenes on TV. The star said that they weren’t “to his taste” and they were “too much for him”, reports the Independent.

“Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are. I hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face to the point where it feels like an every-day kind of thing,” Crystal added.

The event was also used to hype his return to TV comedy with his new show The Comedians, which is to air in April.

His remarks about gay sex scene on TV were met with derision from twitter users. One user said, “Sorry Billy but “gay scenes” on TV aren’t pushing it. Wanna know what is pushing it? It’s subtle bigotry in 2014. #StopBigotry”
