Scott Mills, the gay Radio 1 host, trekked down to Uganda to film The World’s Worst Place To Be Gay?, a three-part documentary to see which country will win the prestigious award for being the most homophobic place on earth. Looking to capture the title in a landslide, Ugandan officials reportedly tried to hunt down and arrest Mills after telling David Bahati, the Kill The Gays proponent, about his sexuality.
Mills said that Bahati “went mental” and tried to arrest the filming crew, reports The Sun.
Mills said: “I’d heard horror stories about people getting arrested and roughed up and who knows what. I was scared. He ordered us to cut the cameras then brought a security guard.
“We ran off and he rang one of our guys saying, ‘Where are they staying? What are the registration plates? I want them arrested. They won’t get far.’ We lied that we were at the Sheraton and apparently he turned up there with armed police.”
In the above video, a Ugandan witch doctor works some magic to turn Mills straight. But if being targeted by Ugandan officials intent on terrorizing you won’t make you straight, nothing will.
