Michigan businessowner Brian Klawiter says he didn't know he would stir up controversy by declaring on Facebook that he would refuse service to gay customers. Whether you believe that or not, Klawiter certainly incited a firestorm.
After Klawiter received death threats, gay porn, and hurled eggs, his auto parts and repair business was attacked by vandals. The criminals spray-painted gay symbols, as well as "Bash Back" and "I (heart) Nuts" on Klawiter's truck and business. A rock was also reportedly thrown through his window. Not all reaction has been extreme: about 100 people gathered on Saturday at Dieseltech, Klawiter's business, to protest his antigay messages.
In response, Klawiter posted the following on Facebook:
"Well, folks, as we predicted, it didn't take long for the ugly face of the homosexual movement to present itself. What started out with 'mere' death threats against myself and my family and homosexuals spamming my Facebook page with gay porn shots, has escalated to physical violence. See the pics below. We called police to file a report this morning, and City of Grandville Officer John Davis responded. The officer arrived, looked around, took a few notes, chuckled, and said 'turn it in to the insurance company.' He gave us a Police Report number 15-2779, but did not take the rock which has a fingerprint on it. The homosexual agenda is evil, and is prepared to destroy anyone who gets in its way, or who calls homosexuality a sin. Today it's us; tomorrow, it could be you."
Unsurprisingly, Klawiter also did interviews with the media about the vandalism; watch below.
