First there was the lesbian couple in Parker, Colorado who got their house tagged with anti-gay hate speech, now it’s a couple in Grove City, OH. According to NBC4i.com, David Robins and his partner, Michael, has the homophobic tag spray painted on their home sometime Tuesday night.
Wednesday morning, Robins said, they awoke to find someone had spray-painted homophobic slurs on their garage door, home and fence.
“It’s extremely disappointing. Nine years we’ve lived here and not a problem. Now, all of a sudden this happens. It makes me kind of wonder,” he said.
“I kind of feel like it needs to stay up to make a statement, but at the same time, I don’t want to disrupt the neighbors, the perception of the neighborhood, but I also feel like I don’t want to cover it up, either,” he said.
Robins is calling it a hate crime, and Grove City officers are investigating.
