Homophobic fans of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” are furious over a gay kiss during one of the final scenes in Sunday night’s episode.
The scene featured Aaron, the series’ first gay male character, reuniting with his boyfriend, Eric. The couple shared a passionate kiss after discovering the other is still alive.
The kiss and the ensuing hate unleashed on twitter shows us that there are still many out there who can’t accept the diversity in gender and sexuality, but who are totally okay with watching cannibalistic zombies tear each other apart.
Here is what some of those gay haters had to say via Twitter:
Please take faggots off the walking dead. Wtf. Excellent show but no gays please
