A Canadian man's homophobic rant has gone viral—but he's kind of wishing it hadn't.
Reese Buhr and a few friends were standing outside of nightclub 441 Main talking amongst themselves.
The doorman of the club could hear the conversation and heard all of the homophobic things being said. By the time Reese Buhr made it up to the door, the door man had heard enough.
He denied the group entry because 441 Main is a space for everyone and the groups hateful attitudes would make other patrons uncomfortable. Most of the group took the rejection in stride, but not Reese.
He responded by hopping on Instagram and live streaming a horribly homophobic rant, pretty much proving that the doorman was 100% right to deny him entry.
In the first video, which is just over two minutes long, Reese claims he "f*cking hates gays" and wants that put on record. He then rants about how homosexuality should be illegal and how his rights as a straight person are gone and now only "queers" have rights.
Reese pines for a time when men could be thrown in jail for "sticking their d**ks in other people's arses" and then tells his viewers that he is angry and off to "do something about it."
He deleted the video, but not before someone got it and put it on Twitter.
Apparently someone agreed with him because he posted a second video thanking his supporters. He followed that up by claiming that straight people are being put down for their sexuality even though heterosexuality is"
"the good sexuality. We're straight. We're the way God intended it."
The night club has absolutely no regrets about denying him entry, especially now that his posts have proven the doorman right. Reese's threat to "do something" about gays really recalls the sorts of things said just before the fatal Pulse nightclub shooting where 49 lives were lost.
441 Main has taken to social media to double down on their support for the LGBTQ+ community.
The owner was clear with news stations—441 Main is a place where sexuality and gender do not matter.
All that matters is that you want to have a good time.
Twitter is pretty unimpressed with Reese.
People called him out hard—even some people who had been following him for a while before this. Evidently Reese has a history of this sort of thing, and more.
His Twitter account is now suspended, by the way.
Reese did eventually post a very short apology video.
He apologized to security and anyone he might have offended and then busted out the classic line "this isn't me."
Twitter responded with a collective, "Nah, homie, that's all you."
Long story short, we don't think Reese will be out at a club for a while—and based on the things people who know him personally are saying, that's probably a good thing.
