Social media clients are together with an insult to hurt to the lesbian couple who suffered a chilling assault on a London bus last week.
The assault, which left an American woman with a broken jaw after she refused to kiss her companion on the urging of a bunch of hooligans, has spawned a litany of homophobic abuse in opposition to the pair on Facebook and Twitter.
“That’s what you get for being gay,” one Facebook shopper commented on an article regarding the May 30 assault aboard a double-decker bus, which centered Melania Geymonat, 28, and her girlfriend Chris, 29.
The social media hate poured in as London’s Metropolitan Police said that they’d 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 a web posting. “All the girls have been taken by girls.”
Despite the assaults, the couple suggested reporters that they refuse to cowl their relationship. “We are not scared to be visibly queer,” said Chris, who did not current her full title.
