Ведущий программы «Время покажет» отказался извиняться за пародию на олимпийского спортсмена-трансгендера в эфире Первого канала. Анатолий Кузичев заявил «Газете.Ru», что это шутка, которая не будет иметь никаких последствий.

«За шутки я никогда не извиняюсь. Я считаю, что это просто смех, насмешка — и в этом нет ничего предосудительного. У меня с МОК (Международный олимпийский комитет) никаких отношений нет, я никаких контрактов не подписывал, никаких хартий не подтверждал, присяги МОК не давал. Поэтому от него я никаких санкций не ожидаю».

Ведущий программы «Время покажет» Анатолий Кузичев заявил, что трансгендеры — психопаты. А гость программы «60 минут» депутат Госдумы Алексей Журавлев назвал спортсменов «мразями» и «гомиками».
