This homophobic senator is being epically trolled by men wearing tutus

When asked by students at Greybull High School in Greybull, Wyoming last Friday what he could do to improve the lives of LGBTQ people living in the Equality State, Sen. Mike Enzi replied:

In Wyoming you can be just about anything you want to be, as long as you don’t push it in somebody’s face. I know a guy who wears a tutu and goes to bars on Friday night and is always surprised that he gets in fights. Well, he kind of asks for it. That’s the way that he winds up with that kind of problem.

Did you catch that, folks? Enzi basically told a group of kids that (gay) men wearing tutus deserve whatever they get, even if it’s violence.

Did we mention the comments were made in Wyoming, the same state where Matthew Shepard was killed in a horrific antigay hate crime that made international headlines back in 1998?

After the comments received backlash, Enzi released a hasty, half-hearted apology:

It is such a simple lesson–it is never permissible to hurt another. Hatred in any form is destructive to the very foundation upon which our society is built. No person, including LGBT individuals, should feel unsafe in their community.

Still, that didn’t stop folks from trolling the 73-year-old senator on social media.

Men (and a few great women, too!) all across the nation spent their weekends posting pictures of themselves wearing tutus in public using the hashtag #liveandlettutu…

This one is for Mike Enzi. #liveandlettutu
