Jerry Lewis's F-Bomb

Uh-oh. Jerry Lewis pulled a total Isaiah Washington during this year's 42nd annual telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. In the 18th hour of the three-day fundraiser, the 81-year-old seemed to forget he was on live TV and referred to a family member as an "illiterate fa**ot" while he was in the middle of rant.

Don't worry: GLAAD is already all over this. They've requested a meeting with Jerry to help him understand how hurtful those words are.

Jerry, we're ashamed. You're supposed to be about helping -- not hurting. So, which is worse -- Jerry's use of the word or Isaiah's? Does it make any difference that Jerry is 81 years old and might not always be 100-percent with it? Is that an excuse? Weigh in below.
