My friend kolton was being very rude to gay people. He was calling me gay. I had told him to stop because that is very offensive. It broke my heart that he would do something so outrageous to offent over a million people that he doesn't even know. I call him a brother however he is very disrespectful to gay relations everywhere. I would like to apologize for arrogant ways.
