Homophobic Mom Punches Her Kid In Front Of Police After He Comes Out

Mother and son before the attack.

When Emma Green’s son, Scott, came out at a family gathering in Kinross, Scotland, she didn’t take the news well.

The drunken 37-year-old mother of 11 became enraged and unleashed a string of homophobic slurs against her son, calling him a “poof,” a “gaybender,” a “dirty queer,” and telling him he likes to “take cock up the ass.”

Things escalated and police were called. They were in the process of arresting 21-year-old Scott for suspected assault when his mother stumbled over and, in a drunken stupor of rage, punched her gay son in the face.

That’s when the handcuffs came off Scott and were placed on Emma instead. As she was being arrested, she told police: “I’m homophobic! I don’t care! I hate the little gay bender!”

Yesterday, Green, now sober, appeared in court. She admitted to “carrying out an assault ­aggravated by sexual prejudice” against her son.

“She certainly isn’t proud of her actions,” her lawyer, John Adams, said. “She was motivated by his sexual orientation. She has reacted more in anger.”

While he was testifying, Sheriff Lindsay Foulis called Green “stupid” for what she did.

“If she hadn’t been so stupid as to strike her son when he was being held by police officers, nine times out of 10 this wouldn’t have seen the light of day,” he said.

Green was ordered to pay £300 ($495) to her son, who her lawyer claims she’s made amends with since the incident.

“There is no ongoing ill-feeling between them,” he assured the court.

“I just wish none of this had ever happened,” Green said yesterday on her way out of the courthouse. “I’ve got enough on my hands looking after the rest of the family.”

    And they were going to arrest the son for……what?

  • rextrek

    what an awful mother…..and trashy too….she’s has alot of nerve, and IF she had ANY education she would KNWO that your chances of having gay children are high with the MORE children you have…….she OWES him a HUGE apology!

  • IcarusD

    @Cam: Yeah, strange. Article says suspected assault? Maybe she made false accusations and they took her word for it? The fact that they released him rather than arresting them both suggests that they felt they no longer had probable cause for his arrest.

  • Aromaeus

    The woman has 11 children…she can’t be surprised that one of them is gay.

  • sangsue

    In other words, if Emma Green hadn’t been “stupid” enough to hit her son with eyewitnesses, they could have just ignored it.

    Look what their example of women is. If being gay was a choice she would have had MORE than one gay one because they would look at her and think… (Nope, don’t want any of that)

    Police are so quick to jump on the guy when its a female vs male situation. Talk about double standards. If she hadn’t shown her true colors by hitting him, they probably would of filed a police report on hit and damaged his good name.

    ” 37 year old drunken mother of 11″ says all I need to know about this piece of garbage. She needs some serious help. Don’t recall reading anything about Scott’s father or the father(s) of any of her other 10 kids.

  • corey

    11 kids, it is said 1 in 10

  • dougmc92

    we say what we truly think/feel when we’re drunk- never accept, ‘Oh, I was drunk’ as an excuse.

  • scott609

    I’m sure with the eleven kids comes eleven fathers. Imagine hating your son for something so stupid as being gay, and being 37 with 11 kids. Sounds like she would be mother of the year in certain parts of the US.

  • davincibarnette

    ….hmmm, with 11 kids, I hope she’s resigned herself to the fact another 1 may be gay. Ignorant Bitch !!

    I don’t get some parents. Thankfully they are quickly becoming the minority. A couple who live down the street from me and the fiancee with whom we have a very passing aquaintance saw me getting my mail and came to talk to me seeming upset. They expalined their son who just finished school and moved to Chicago just came out to them. I was surprised that they were upset not because their son is gay, but because he had been afriad to tell them. They felt that they somehow screwed up. I told them that a lot of parents turn their back on their kids when they come out. The Mom’s response was priceless. “Yeah, but those people are f**king disgusting! How could he think we’re like that? Did we do something wrong?”. That family is gonna be just fine. The one inthis post? Well, one can always hope, I guess.

    “I’ve got enough on my hands looking after the rest of the family”. Ha ha, yeah you do. What with 11 kids to look after!

  • Dakotahgeo
