On the bright side, his TV career has nowhere to go but up!

:::: UPDATE ::::

Though it sounds like A.J. says "gay... fuckin' shit!" at the beginning of yesterday's fateful telecast, Clemente took to Twitter to clarify that he might be many things, but a homophobe isn't one of them.

Sadly, KFYR has decided to let A.J. go.
