A Fox News host is being called homophobic for his comments about San Francisco's "shelter in place" order. San Francisco was the first city to order residents to stay home during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

Mark Steyn, who is a Fox News guest host, was filling in for Rush Limbaugh, who is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.

Steyn told Limbaugh's radio listeners that the Bay Area is under quarantine because of "gay guys." He said San Francisco is under a "shelter in place" order to stay home because "a big gay apocalypse" would be blamed on President Donald Trump.

The coronavirus causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly population, particularly those with weak immunity, chronic illnesses such as AIDS, COPD and other respiratory-related problems.

"San Francisco has just ordered everyone to shelter in place, just to say, 'Stay in your apartment. Don't leave your apartment unless you need to go out to a grocery store or to a pharmacy or to a doctor's.' Why are they doing that?" Steyn asked. "Why is San Francisco the first to do that? Because they've got all the gay guys there."

He added San Francisco is "a big gay town," and they're the ones with all the compromised immune systems from all the protease inhibitors and all the other stuff. And they don't want all the gays dropping dead on the San Francisco mayor's watch. So that's why they've got all that sheltering in place there."

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has refused to order or approve a lockdown for any city within the state, despite Mayor Bill de Blasio threatening to order a lockdown of NYC.

Mass hysteria over the coronavirus outbreak drove the stock market down another 2,000 points on Wednesday, triggering a breaker that halted all trading for 15 minutes.

Charlamagne tha god claims he has other "potential deals" lined up when he exits Power 105.1 morning show "The Breakfast Club" after his contract expires.

Rumors swirled last month that the 41-year-old radio host, real name Lenard McKelvey, and his co-hosts Angela Yee, 45, and DJ Envy, 42, were considering leaving the show.

McElvey founded the show in 2010 after he was fired from the popular Wendy Williams Show on WBLS. McElvey and his co-hosts have been hinting about leaving The Breakfast Club.

"He loves working for iHeart Radio, but he is contemplating his next move," a source [read: Charlamagne] tells Page Six. "There are a lot of potential deals in the air, and he just wants to keep his options open and think strategically."

Years before The Breakfast Club, McKelvey was accused of rape by a then-15-year-old girl in South Carolina. The charges were mysteriously dropped.

McElvey is married but his radio career has been plagued by down low rumors.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence appeared on The Breakfast Club to promote the third installment of their Bad Boys movie franchise, titled Bad Boys For Life.

Smith started stuttering when he was asked to speak on his wife Jada Pinkett Smith's brief love affair with rapper Tupac Shakur.

"Uh, oh, f**k yeah! Oh my God!" Smith said emphatically. He went on to share that he felt intimidated and awkward around Tupac, who died in 1996. "I could never interact with 'Pac," he explained.

Smith, 51, is convinced that Tupac never sampled Jada's goodies, but that's not what she's telling friends.
