Hateful ‘gay free zone’ stickers Gets Man Arrested

by Accidental Bear

I love unicorn, rainbow, cotton candy, water melon and kitten stickers but not anti-gay stickers. It seem like a lot of work just to post your hate publicly. Cases like this usually end up with the perpetrator going off his crazy meds or something mental health related. Now, will some get this boy some scratch and sniff snickers, aromatherapy has many proven benefits. I betcha no one has ever tried to cure homophobia with aromatherapy scratch and sniff stickers. ~AB

An 18-year-old man has been arrested and charged over homophobic stickers circulated throughout London’s East End.
Mohammed Hasnath, of Leamouth, Tower Hamlets, is accused under section 5 of the Public Order Act relating to harassment, alarm or distress.

The stickers (pictured) were distributed around the Whitechapel, Shoreditch and Poplar areas between 11 and 14 February, featuring a rainbow flag with a line through it. The stickers specifically targeted schools and pubs, including the gay-friendly George and Dragon.

They read: “Arise and warn. Gay free zone. And Fear Allah; Verily Allah is severe in punishment.” 18 year-old Hasnath, who is currently on bail, will next appear at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 1 June.
