4LOL, Okay: Michael Douglas Backtracks, Says His Love of Cunnilingus Isn’t Behind His Cancer

michael douglas

Earlier this week, Michael Douglas started spouting off the most insane, ignorant shit I’ve ever heard when he claimed that his love of eating women out is what caused him to get cancer. Obviously, the link there was from HPV, but his uninformed tirade about STDs was just so bonkers, I left it to Catherine to write about lest I spontaneously combust. In any case, obviously enough people have called him out about it that he’s thought better and has tried to backpedal his way out of this shitstorm.

Here’s what his rep had to say in a statement:

“Michael Douglas did not say cunnilingus was the cause of his cancer. It was discussed that oral sex is a suspected cause of certain oral cancers as doctors in the article point out, but he did not say it was the specific cause of his personal cancer.”

Zzzzzzzzzzz. Shut up.

Listen, I’m not here to argue about the fact that HPV can increase the risk of certain kinds of cancers – particularly for women – and obviously I’m not a doctor or a trained medical professional. But here’s the thing: neither is Michael f-cking Douglas. Plus, he’s a lifelong smoker. Would that not be MORE of cancer risk? No one respects you more because you like a bit of carpet munching. No one thinks you’re cool. I’m certainly glad he’s recovered and wish him the best, but I also wish people who didn’t know what the hell they’re talking about – especially a predominant public figure – would keep their traps shut when it comes to misinforming the general public about what could be a serious issue. He’s really turning into a jackass, lately.

    Hi! First time poster here…
    So just how is he misinforming people? I happen to work for public health, and am a HPV-caused cancer survivor as well. Maybe he’s not being upfront about HIS cancer, but he sure the heck is right about HPV being a major cause of oral and throat cancer. It probably didn’t help that he smoked, either. He’s probably only backtracking b/c his wife went batshit when she read his comments!

    Well, if you claim you got cancer from oral sex and, oh by the way oral sex also CURED it (note most media outlets spared him the embarrassment of even reporting that part of his quote), then come out and claim that you never said that— that would be “misinforming people”.

    It’s not educating anyone if it’s bullshit.

    Well I got my medical degree from the world-renowned F.U. and my diagnosis is that Michael Douglas has terminal Footius in Mouthius Syndrome. The cure is to remove the footius from the mouthius…then clamp the mouth firmly shut until brain growth is resumed. I’m ready for my Nobel Prize now.
