Gay couple claims United Airline agent called them “faggots” after a dispute…
“We were completely shocked. We were shaking,” Billy Canu told 7NEWS on Sunday.
Canu said he and his partner were waiting for their flight home Saturday evening at DIA when they got confused about access to United’s Gold Lounge on Concourse B. Canu said the incident happened when the two men approached nearby United gate agents.
“As we were walking away he goes ‘idiots,’” recounted Canu. “So, my partner turned around and started walking up to him and said, ‘I’m sorry. What did you say?’”
“He [the manager] says, ‘What f*****s,’” according to Canu.
Canu said the manager even threatened to kick the couple off their flight to San Diego if they continued to complain.
“I started fearing the fact that we wouldn’t be able to get home if we continued fighting him on it,” Canu said.
