Man who made Facebook rant about faggots charged
A UK man has been arrested after posting a rant on Facebook in which he suggested gay people should be shot.
The 43-year-old father of three made the comment “faggots should be machine gunned” under an article posted to Facebook about a Pride event in Newcastle in the north of England.
The man posted:
"If your parents were faggots, you horrible gay cunts wouldn't of [sic] been born! Should be lined up and machine gunned, vile disgusting cunts!"
He also posted another message that gay people should be "slaughtered".
The man has plead guilty in the Newcastle Magistrates Court to sending an offensive, indecent and obscene message but has denied he is homophobic. The court fined him a total of £393 ($662) including costs and victim surcharge.
