VIDEO: Larry David Addresses Jesus “Toilet Humor” Flap
Larry David addressed the recent controversy involving a scene from a recent episode of his HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, on the new George Lopez TBS talk show, Lopez Live Thursday, after religious groups were rankled when the Seinfeld creator inadvertently urinated on a painting of Jesus Christ.
David explained to the show's host, fellow comedian George Lopez, the premise of the episode's plot, in which he takes medicine that dramatically increased the flow of his urine, causing the accidental sacrilege.

"It upset them, Christian people of faith," David explained of the subsequent backlash. "And Muslims too."
"They never agree, but they've agreed that they hate you," Lopez added.
"Many Jews hate me too!" David, sounding as misanthropic as his TV alter ego, said.
HBO said of the furor: "Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire. Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious."
