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.”

Juan Pablo Galavis of “The Bachelor” says he is opposed to gays being on the show in new comments that could lead to controversy.

Speaking with a reporter for The TV Page at an event on Friday, the hunky star was asked, “Do you think it would be a good idea at some point to have a gay or bisexual ‘Bachelor’?”

Galavis quickly responded, “No.”

Why not?

“I respect them… but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids to watch that on TV,” explained Galavis, who then reiterated that he doesn’t have an issue with gay relationships.

He continued, “But obviously, people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there [are] fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having… two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.”

Galavis asked, “Where is the thin line to cross or not?”

“It would be too hard for TV,” he explained. “Too much, too much.”

Then he dropped this explanation: “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… and to me the show will be too strong, too hard to watch on TV.”

Juan Pablo Galavis is mocking Us Weekly for the magazine’s “Exes Tell All” cover story about “The Bachelor” star.

The tabloid published a photo of the soccer player’s baby mama Carla Rodriguez on its cover (see below), which teases, “Ex-girlfriends dish about dating ‘playboy’ Juan Pablo, his wandering eye and why he’ll never settle for one woman.”

Inside the mag, however, Us Weekly doesn’t quote his daughter Camila’s mother, but “sources” who allegedly once dated the reality star.

Galavis poked fun at the story on Thursday, tweeting a photo of himself and Rodriguez reading the issue (see right), along with the caption, “Camila’s MOM and I ENJOYING the ARTICLE of @usweekly.”

He added in another tweet, “According to @usweekly I am El Bachelor BACHATERO,” which means “The Playboy Bachelor” in Spanish.

Check out the tabloid’s cover below, and tell us what you think of Galavis’ response!
