While cooling off from a hot summer day at the Kentucky Kingdom earlier this week, Jesse Colter claims an LMPD officer approached him and threatened to arrest him for wearing a Speedo swimsuit, and allegedly called him a “queer.”
Earlier that day, Jesse claims a Public Safety Officer from the park informed him that it was okay to wear the brief trunks.
The police officer asked Jessie to leave the park or face arrest. Jessie, who is not amused, has chosen to leave the park. He hasn’t filed an official complaint yet, as he believes it’s more important to get the word out first.
On July 7 Jessie tweeted out the following photo showing the bathing suit he was wearing and detailing the incident:

Kentucky Kingdom water park’s website says the water park reserves the right to determine whether a guest is dressed inappropriately on their FAQ page.
Jenna Franch took to twitter expressing her dismay over the water park’s actions, she wrote “Today I witnessed a man get kicked out of Kentucky Kingdom for wearing a Speedo . Society needs to calm tf down.”
