This photographer's response to haters has made him a viral sensation for all the right reasons.
Like many people on social media, photographer Clinton Brentwood Lee added a rainbow filter to his profile picture in support of gay marriage. It's a way of saying, "I think all people should be allowed to do people things." It lets everyone know you support your fellow human beings on this earth. Also, it's a rainbow! Everyone loves rainbows, right?! Apparently, there are some monster-people who despise rainbows.
One of these rainbow-haters was Clinton's photography client, and she said she no longer wanted to use his services knowing that he supports gay marriage. Here is the post, along with Clinton's incredible response to this Facebook bigotry:
The business reply heard 'round the world! Lol I hope in the scheme of life this isn't the one thing I am known for but I am happy I took a stand. The only thing I wish I had changed on this photo screen shot is where it says I support "Gay Marriage". While I 100% do, I wish I had just said that I support marriage opportunity for all. We shouldn't have to call it "gay marriage" like it is something different. It's just marriage. Like it is between a man or a woman or a black person and a white person. Ever person on this planet deserves their own happy ever after, even if it is different from your view of it. Don't like "gay marriage" that's cool, don't get "gay married"! But don't try to stop a company who believes everyone deserves to be happy. PLEASE NOTE: Yes I realize I could have handled this differently or more professionally, but I have always been known to be an artist with freely expressed feelings and my uniqueness. I will never stop being me. I will continue to love everyone. #loveislove #love #marriage #lgbt #glad #lovewins #standup #pride #istandwithyou #kcco www.BrentwoodPhotography.com
