San Diego Padres Baseball Team Accused Of Homophobia After National Anthem Mistake Involving The City's Gay Men's Chorus

no title

Drama down in San Diego — and it's getting icky.

The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was all set to sing the National Anthem on Saturday night at the San Diego Padres' MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things went very wrong very quickly — and now, here comes the fall out.

The chorus, which brought one hundred singers to the game to sing the anthem, was trotted out into center field to perform — but something went wrong with the public address system at the team's home stadium, Petco Park.

At the start of their song, a recording of women singing the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker, and it was never stopped.

The chorus then had to walk off the field after not being able to perform, and the group alleges they faced chants of "you sing like a girl" from the fans while leaving the stadium in shame.

Furthermore, the chorus alleges that the event almost didn't happen in the first place, as the Padres tried to make the entire group buy tickets to the game before they were able to perform.

The gorgeous guy explained to E! News on Friday that he's super supportive of the hunky actor's decision, saying:

"He's a good guy and he's a good actor…Such a goodhearted gentle loving guy. I'm happy that he's happy."

We wholeheartedly agree!

And, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 star even admitted that there have been times when people have tried to get him to spill secrets about Colton's sexual preference, recalling:

"A fan three or four months ago at a Comic-Con convention basically tried to bait me into outing him. I got in touch with [Colton] and was like, 'Hey, man, this happened [and] I didn't know what to say. I simply deflected and we moved on.'…He emailed me back and said, 'You know, I really appreciate that and I've recently made some decisions over the past few months and I'm excited about what's in the future.' I'm excited for him, too."

Awwwwww! The famous father is such a good confidante!

In the interview where the Teen Wolf alum came out, he also addressed his lifelong struggle with anxiety, which is something the Canada native noticed when they worked together, remembering:

Catholic Church Will Allow Gay Couple To Get Buried Next To Each Other — Just Not With Their Same Sex Marriage Tombstone…

no title

Even if you're a bigot… this doesn't make much sense.

Michael DeLeon and Greg Bourke have spent the last 30 years together, have been married since 2004, and have even raised two children as a couple, but they may not be able to spend eternity together.

That's because a Catholic Church in Louisville, Kentucky has allowed the husbands to get buried in their cemetery… they just can't do it with the tombstone they had in mind!

Apparently, Michael and Greg, both 58, applied to be buried at the Catholic Archdiocese of Louisville in order to take the burden off their kids, but their gravestone depicting two male hands with wedding rings above the Supreme Court was deemed inappropriate for the Church back in March.

According to Catholic Charities executive director Javier Fajardo, the diocese believed the gay symbol went against the Bible, saying:
