A man identified only as "Stuart" is demanding a refund from LGBTQ nightclub Push The Button after attending their "Huge NYE Party 2018." It seems his evening was going great until he looked over and saw — gasp — men kissing! This, of course, forced Stuart and his girlfriend to leave the event early, which he believes is the fault of the event's organizers.


Rob Holley, who DJ's and promotes for Push the Button, tweeted pictures of Stuart's email:

In his email, Stuart claims he "had to leave" because he wasn't aware it was a "GBLT" evening.

Rob followed up, asking Stuart why he "had to" leave.

Stuart explained that he's "not homophobic" but his New Year's Eve was ruined by being at a "gay evening."

Unfortunately for Stuart, it was made abundantly clear what kind of event he was going to...

The sight of men kissing is, apparently, what caused Stuart's discomfort.

Stuart had tried to get a refund the night before, only to be turned down.

Stuart tried to end the exchange by calling Rob "an ignorant individual with no empathy."

In the end, Stuart showed his true colors.

On Twitter, Rob offered a final message, pointing out that Stuart would have gotten his refund if he'd been nice about it.




Twitter users were united in their annoyance with Stuart and admiration of Rob.



Even if you wouldn't do it, seeing men kissing shouldn't ruin a New Year's Eve.


People called out Stuart for his self-righteous attitude and not-so-subtle homophobia.



We applaud Holley's deft handling of an infuriating situation! We hope Stuart goes to the right party in 2020 — the one where he and his girlfriend stay home, away from progressive society that makes him feel ICKY.

Just because someone is popular doesn't mean they're nice or even sane.

We all learn that lesson the hard way. Everybody has their secrets, especially the people we think have it all.

School is a very emotional and frustrating time. And nobody truly knows how to properly deal.

The 'popular kids' are full of surprises.

So keep an eye on them.

And not for envy, for your own safety.

They're probably plotting something.

Everyone is on edge in this current climate.

And all it takes is one grievance committed by another to make a person snap.

Someone going postal could be the result of a significant other's infidelity, appalling customer service, or individuals on either side of an argument over abiding by certain health protocols.

And that changes day to day, or even by the hour.

I love to save money. And sometimes I tear up when I have to pay a bill that feels a little high.

I love to look at my bank account and watch the amount rise.

When it falls, I shudder.

So I will always look for a deal when shopping. Give me a clearance rack anytime.

But even in my delirium of thrift I can admit, that sometimes, there is an item or three where higher quality counts.

And higher quality often comes with a higher price tag.

So I spend what I have to... and then cry.
