Romanian TV Star Defends Partner Felix Baumgartner's Attack On Gay Rights

A Romanian television star has publicly called gay people abnormal and asked for gay couples to refrain from public displays of affection, reports Gay Star News.

Referring to gays as “you abnormal people,” Romania's Got Talent judge Mihaela Rădulescu compared LGBTI people with terrorists and called for public LGBTI events to be banned.

Rădulescu also called Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst “a woman who was a man but can’t let go of the beard” and said that increased rights for gay people would “infringe on the majority’s right to disagree with their lifestyle.”

Rădulescu’s comments were inspired by a Facebook post by her partner Felix Baumgartner written in defense of Austrian folk singer Andreas Gabalier, who had complained at an awards ceremony that “it’s not easy in this world if, as a man, you still like women.” When booed by the audience, Gabalier said “politically correct” people should be more tolerant of his intolerance.

 

Toll, Toller, TOLERANZ!Man(n) kann diesem Burschen nur gratulieren! Da stellt sich einer auf die Bühne einer Musik...

 Rădulescu has since backtracked on her comments with the old "some of my best friends are gay" chestnut.
