Default Lesbian couple attacked on bus gets blasted on social media ‘for being gay’


Lesbian couple attacked on bus gets blasted on social media ‘for being gay’

Melania Geymonat and girlfriend Chris after being assaulted on a London bus

Social media users are adding insult to injury to the lesbian couple who suffered a chilling attack on a London bus last week.

The assault, which left an American woman with a broken jaw after she refused to kiss her partner at the urging of a group of hooligans, has spawned a litany of homophobic abuse against the pair on Facebook and Twitter.

“That’s what you get for being gay,” one Facebook user commented on an article about the May 30 attack aboard a double-decker bus, which targeted Melania Geymonat, 28, and her girlfriend Chris, 29.

The social media hate poured in as London’s Metropolitan Police said they had a fifth teenage boy in custody Saturday morning. The couple was attacked by boys between the ages of 15 and 10, authorities said.

“No wonder my brother still can’t find a girl to marry,” wrote Chisomo Chitete in an online posting. “All the girls have been taken by girls.”

Despite the attacks, the couple told reporters that they refuse to hide their relationship. “We are not scared to be visibly queer,” said Chris, who did not provide her full name.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
