Rashida Jones - Rashida Jones Apologizes For Urging John Travolta To 'Come Out'

Rashida Jones has apologized for her 'thoughtless' remark regarding John Travolta 's sexuality during an interview on website SpinningPlatters.com.
The actress was promoting her new movie 'Celeste and Jesse Forever' with her co-star Will Mccormack when the subject came round to singer Frank Ocean and his recent public admission to having a homosexual relationship. 'There needs to be, like, a professional athlete that comes out', said MCCormack, before Jones (daughter of music producer Quincy Jones) came out with, 'And a movie star! It's time...Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let's do this.' The comment came following persistent allegations of sexual assault by the 'Pulp Fiction' star, who is married to Kelly Preston, from several masseurs; accusations that continued to arise even despite the initial claims being proved false. Jones had added that 'big stars need to come out' and said that she was 'really happy' when Ricky Martin came out as gay. She also expressed that she thought people were 'precious' about their careers.
Jones took to Twitter yesterday to express her apologies for what she said: 'Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody's personal life is my business'.

COMPUABLE

Rashida Jones publicly urges John Travolta to come out of the closet. Perhaps that headline and story should (more accurately) actually read this way:"Rashida Jones, star of "The Office" and the upcoming film "Celeste and Jesse Forever," in an effort to promote herself and the film within the social media circles and thus increase her somewhat remote fame (in comparison) relays unproven, unsubstantiated rumors of an accusation against John Travolta, who denies the accusers charges."Astronaut Sally Ride's post-mortem tribute to the fact that she was survived (we found out afterwards, of course) by Tam O'Shaugnessy, her partner of 27 years as well as having been previously married to a male astronaut for five years; should be proof positive that whether (or not) someone is actually either privately gay or lesbian or bi-sexual or trans and does not wish to currently reveal this - it is none of anybody's g-damn business. Period.It's true that John Travolta is a public figure and all; but who benefits from libelously (and publicly) humiliating some one else like that - especially when these thus far entirely 'unsubstantiated' claims are also criminal charges?And everyone (including celebs) who actually are or 'are not' so; should have their right to their dignity as well as privacy with regards to this matter; instead of being hounded and witch-hunted by the likes of washed-up dried-out windbags such as Joan Rivers and Carrie Fisher and now faux-ingénue Rashida Jones - or any other 'impending' clueless, rumor mongering and truly classless, voluntarily hypocritical headline grabbers.
