Marriage Protest

Man Runs Onto Court, Protests Gay Marriage During French Open Final

On Sunday, the 2013 French Open Final between Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer was interrupted when a man with a flare ran onto the court. The man was reportedly protesting gay marriage, which was recently legalized in the country of France.

The security was swift in taking down the protestor and putting the fire out before any real harm could be done.

Nadal who appeared to be in the path of the protestor quickly resumed play and went on to beat Ferrer in straight sets (6-3, 6-2, 6-3). The win marked Nadal’s eighth French Open title.

      This is how false news spreads. In an effort to get clicks, you are misrepresenting the very story you are linking to. The linked story spells out the facts that are known and confirmed – what happened, what the signs and slogans said, who was involved. It mentions unconfirmed reports that the protest might be linked to an opposition to marriage equality. There is nothing in the story that supports your headline. You should change it.

      Sure looks like them, unless that’s the next wave of fashion from Paris.

      @TexasAMC — What the heck are you talking about? Not on bit of the story as reported in this post is factually incorrect. Perhaps it’s you who needs to get your facts straight before you go off on one.

      @balehead & Greg Garavani — Thanks to these protestors there have been many anti-gay attacks throughout France, ending in one gay man being killed. Glad these homophobes turn you on.

      @Greg Garavani:
      How does he make you wet and how do you know he’s hot? Do you see his face?
      So, you get wet for people who want you to be a second class citizen? seriously?
