Gay couple allegedly kicked off bus for kiss…
A gay couple is considering filing complaints against CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) after a bus drive allegedly tried to have them removed from the bus for kissing.
The two men say that the driver yelled homophobic slurs at them and called them police after they refused to leave the bus.
Christopher Buchanan, 22, and his boyfriend Derrell Hughes boarded a 146 southbound bus in Lakeview on Oct. 22, after leaving an afternoon program at the Broadway Youth Center, Buchanan said.
“I was holding his hand and kissing and whatnot,” Buchanan told Windy City Times.
As the bus approached downtown, he said, a middle-aged White woman approached the bus driver to complain about the two.
Lady, grow the fuck up. Would you please.
The driver allegedly got up and told Buchanan and Hughes that someone had complained about them and that they needed to get off his bus.
“He was really in my face,” said Buchanan. “He said ‘you bitches need to get off the bus…I can’t stand fags.’”
I got news for you bus driver, You are the Little BITCH.
When the couple refused to leave, Buchanan said, the driver called police. Buchanan said that police while police said they had not done anything illegal, they got off the bus after a two-hour ordeal during which a CTA supervisor was called.
