TV News: Gayness Outbreak

Mitchell McCoy, a reporter for KARK and FOX16 News in Arkansas, received a note from a viewer which read:

“Dear Mitch, I watched KARK before you joined and it was a reputable broad cast until now. I have been holding back for months but I can’t stand your gayness. You are on television every night and our children should not be watching people like you. You are a disgrace to Arkansas and I will be asking your boss to take you off. Do not be offended but society is not ready for gay men reading news.”

McCoy shared the note, signed “Sincerely, kark Channel 4 fan,” to his Twitter feed with a defiant retort. 

“I get many emails but this tops it. I’ve dreamt of being a reporter since I was 9 and I won’t stop on your behalf. With that said, no matter who you are or what you believe in – dream loudly and don’t let anyone get in your way. The minute you stop…is the minute you stop being who you are. It’s not worth it...
