NY Bus Driver Orders Gay Couple to the Back of the Bus
While this wasn’t exactly the Rosa Parks Moment some hope for, the irony is not to be missed.
The bus driver reportedly told Gold that if they wanted to continue sitting together, they’d need to move to the back of the bus. Channeling Rosa Parks, Gold refused. The driver pulled the bus over and phoned for a state trooper.
Upon the trooper’s arrival, the driver said that the couple was making him uncomfortable and he wanted them off the bus. Naturally, the trooper told the driver that nothing they were doing was illegal and he needed to continue the trip.
