A former ‘N Sync singer uttered a transgender slur on "Access Hollywood Live," which he was guest hosting, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lance Bass was talking with guest Billy Eichner, a comic, about the best places to talk to people, when Bass noted, "So you need to go to Christopher and Hudson and get those trannies on the corner there — that would be perfect,” according to the story.
"I love a tranny," Eichner responded.
Then Eichner realized their mistake — tranny is considered a slur — and noted, "We’re not supposed to call them trannies anymore. Did you see that Neil Patrick Harris called them a tranny on Twitter?" Bass replied, "Oh, no? Great, now I’m going to get in trouble." the story notes.
