The Internet is mad at Piers Morgan for specifically stating he was hanging out in a “gay bar”

Reliably obnoxious professional blowhard Piers Morgan is an expert in the fine art of gasbaggery and making everyone upset of stomach and heavy of heart.

Nevertheless, terminally outrage-addicted Twitter users are getting all roiled and riled because Morgan made the point of referring to a bar as a “gay bar” rather than just, like, “a bar” or “watering hole,” or “dive.”

Here’s the Tweet that has overly medicated corners of the Internet stewing, festering, and writing in their healing journals:

Well, needless to say, everyone canceled their Labor Day plans to draft and re-draft their poison-pen tweets decrying Morgan’s choice of words.

Here… here is the outrage: 

On and on. And on…

While we slept, did it no longer become acceptable to refer to a bar as a “gay bar”? Do let us know in the comments, won’t you?
