BUS DRIVER REFUSES TO DRIVE PRIDE BUS

A man suspended after refusing to drive an LGBT bus!


An unnamed Norwich bus driver has been suspended after a tweet surfaced where he refused to drive a bus with a rainbow sign on it, saying that "This bus promotes homosexuality and I refuse to drive it".

On the day, it was Norwich pride. Many people were relying on Konectbus (ran by Go East Anglia), to get to and from the Pride Parade. The bus was stalled while waiting for a new driver.


Tweet reads: Today I was waiting for the 501 bus to thickthorn and we were told by the driver we had to wait for him to swap buses as "this bus promotes homosexuality and I refuse to drive it" due to the multicoloured "501" sign @nparkandride Norwich doesn't appreciate homophobia


Go East Anglia said they fully support diversity and wish to welcome customers from any background. They don't condone this kind of behaviour and the driver has been suspended pending a full investigation, but is this enough?

According to a recent study, LGBT acceptance rates have plummeted among young people. Many people have speculated the reasoning for this, however, an answer is not definite. 


Some people argued the side of the driver, saying he was just expressing his views and should be given more training, not a suspension. However, most people believe he should receive some sort of sanction for his actions against the LGBTQ+ community.

they can do what they want, I also agree with NugMags comment, as long as they didn't make a scene I see no problem.

I mean it's his beliefs and if they expect everyone to respect their beliefs, then they should also respect his belief.
