This past weekend a whole lotta shit went down! First, it was the Spencer Reed and Phillip Aubrey stabbing drama and now this! Singer Sir Ari Gold said that he was victim of homophobia on a Short Line bus in New York.
According to the Ari, he was sitting in the front of the bus with a man, and the two were holding hands. The driver looked at the two men and said that if they wanted to continue to sit together that they had to sit in the back of the bus! (Seriously, WTF!?) The driver got so frustrated with the two men holding hands on his bus that he called a New York state trooper! This was some serious drama!
Once the trooper arrived the driver said that the two men holding hands made him uncomfortable and he wanted Ari and his partner off the bus. The trooper then informed the driver that they were doing nothing illegal, and that he needed to continue to drive. Gold then made an announcement to the rest of the people on the bus telling them the reason for the hold-up, and it was safe to say that the peeps on the bus were fucked off at such in-your-face-homophobia.
What the hell is going on? I mean, did the driver actually think they would listen to him and that they would go to the back of the bus? It just sounds like something straight outta 1955! Ari told the Village Voice that he would be pressing charges. I should sure hope so! I am sure that this won't be the last we'll hear of this!
