Margaret Cho On Outing, Why She Talked About John Travolta Being Gay

Whether she's talking about politics, body issues, the queer community or her own mother, Margaret Cho has never been one to mince words.

The comedian was most recently at the center of a controversy involving comments she made about John Travolta being gay during one of her shows in Australia.

While the actor's sexuality has long been speculated about in the media, Cho was attacked by some who argued she had no right to "out" him.

When she stopped by HuffPost Live on Thursday, Cho addressed the incident and explained why she felt comfortable with her assertion that Travolta is gay.
