Shop customer complains about gay couple holding hands

The two men werent doing anything wrong :dontknow: What I find unsettling is ONE customer complained and that was enough for the security guard to think it was valid based purely on their personal opinion, not a store policy (even if it was, it would be equally stupid)
:angry:
He should have told the complainer to get stuffed, not insult the couple!
If I was a victim of prejudice in that way I'd be pretty pissed off if all I got was a transparent apology and £10 voucher.

Holding hands is nothing. It's not like they were making out in aisle three. Bigots should be ignored.
Bradavon: As probably the only guy on this forum who has snogged another man (3 times in fact), it didn't do a lot for me but I didn't hate it either. Who doesn't like a snog?

Sainsbury's said they don't tolerate discrimination, so it sounds like the security guard was going against the policy of the store.
