Will Adam Carolla’s Idiotic, Homophobic, Transphobic Rant Kill ‘The Car Show’?

Adam Carolla isn’t known for being smart. That’s not to say he’s stupid — only that he’s built his reputation on other things, like his spotless “bro” credentials, his penchant for adolescent humor (despite being 47 years old), and his…
