Twitter Users Explode After George Takei Calls Hospitalized Steve Scalise “Bigoted, Homophobic”
George Takei played his usual hand and acted like a total jerk on Twitter after the Virginia shooting on Wednesday, commenting that the officer who saved “bigoted, homophobic” Majority Whip Steve Scalise is a “black lesbian.”
There is honestly no place in the conversation for ignorant statements like that.
And in a rare show of opposition against Takei’s poorly-timed snark, Twitter went nuts.
Check it out:
The universe doesn't joke around. The officer who saved bigoted, homophobic Rep. Steve Scalise during baseball practice was a black lesbian.

George, let's do more to bring people together, instead of looking for opportunities to drive people apart.

No George, she was a competent police officer😊. Any categorising is an insult no matter where it comes from.

Star Trek taught me a lot about inclusivity and humanity. I am sorry to see you disparaging a good and decent man fighting to recover.

I bet you don't even know her name, do you? "Black Lesbian" is all you care about.
