Man Goes Off on Anti-Gay Tirade After Ill. House Approves Gay Marriage Bill

A man went on a loud vocal tirade on a Chicago bus this week after lawmakers from the Illinois House of Representatives approved a bill on Tuesday that grants marriage rights to same-sex couples.

According to the Huffington Post, a YouTube video was posted on Wednesday that shows an irate man loudly voicing his disapproval over marriage equality, singling out a fellow passenger who believes she supports gay marriage.

Though at times, it's hard to understand the man's arguments, he does mention rapists, pedophiles and references Jeffrey Dahmer. He then goes on to call a passenger a "bitch" several times, saying she has "adult acne" and fires off a number of swears.

But passengers quickly got annoyed with the man and his anti-gay rhetoric as they defended the woman he was verbally assaulting. The other passengers also told him to "shut up "and get off the bus.

In part 2 of the clip (a second YouTube video), the man continues his rant for another 14 seconds.

Watch both clips below but beware of the NSFW language:

    Why waste my time watching a ignorant dumbass run his mouth. I hear it all the time when the republicans speak...

    They should have that guy on a pro equality commercial, lol. He’s a caricature of homophobes. Him making such a vile spectacle of himself underscores how ignorant and crass that way of thinking really is. Perhaps his verbal violence opened some people’s mind to reexamining any prejudices they themselves might be harbouring.. Because how could you still look down on queer people as being the amoral ones after listening to that guy’s rant?

    No doubt this very ignorant person regards his bullying behaviour and interference with the comfort of others as exercising his "free speech rights".
