Mr. T is a legend, and a really great guy. He's not the greatest actor, but he has a wonderful charisma and personality, and spent a lot of his time trying to help children and other similar social projects. a class act.
as for the snickers commercial, I thought it was great, and didn't make the gay-bashing connection until it was pointed out to me. I did not for an instant consider that the guy in the commercial was gay.
the infomercial is a shame. Mr. T deserves better. It's nice that he's still working though, and he has a good fan base.
