An awful response to a child's birthday invitation is making its rounds on the Internet. The reason? The kids' parents are gay, and a classmate's mom is not a fan.
Two gay dads living in Baldwin, N.Y., submitted it to their local radio station.
Originally posted on the K-98.3 FM Facebook page, the heartbreaking note was allegedly authored by a disapproving mother on an invite to Sophia's big day.
Maybe she really just doesn't like tie-dye parties?
"Tommy will NOT attend," the note says harshly.
"I do not believe in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your 'lifestyle.' I'm sorry Sophia has to grow up this way. If you have an issue or need to speak to me: [number erased]"
We're more sorry for Tommy, to be honest.
UPDATE: It now appears this story was a hoax.
Concocted by the Long Island radio hosts who featured the alleged anti-gay invitation, it was an attempt to foster a discussion of homophobia ... we think?
It's unclear. Read the station's statement on it.
