On August 4, a man named Gary Cocker tweeted at train company TransPennine Express about a male passenger sitting across from him, wearing stockings and a dress.


Cocker wondered what that was "all about," to which TransPennine's customer response team responded:

"Probably something to do with it being the 21st century now." They added, "As long as they have a ticket, everyone is welcome on our trains."

Ouch, someone get Gary some Neosporin, 'cause he just got BURNED.

People immediately began tweeting their support for the company, and some included pictures of themselves to drive TransPennine's point home.
