Nikki Haley Booed For Attending Gay Pride Parade

Nikki Haley says she and son were booed at NY restaurant during gay pride parade

New York City's annual Pride parade drew to the streets an estimated 1.6 million people celebrating the festivities, but US ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley isn't among those who enjoyed herself. Haley wrote that she and her son "were booed by patrons saying hateful things as we left lunch" during the Pride parade. "Our country is better than that".

A glancing look at her Twitter account states the case.

This year, the NYC gay pride parade was created to bring to focus the element of resistance.

Also unknown are the exact nature of the remarks said to Haley and her son.

Haley largely had anti-LGBT reputation and during her tenure as SC governor prior to joining the Trump adminstration.

"The citizens of SC spoke ... spoke something that I, too, believe, which is marriage should between a man and a woman", Haley said in response to the suit.

Democrats Play Blame Game With Pelosi After Georgia Election - To GOP's Glee
Democrats celebrated the fact that they had turned a conservative stronghold into a competitive district. Congressman Bill Pascrell of New Jersey says, "A loss is a loss is a loss, and there's no excuses".

On Twitter, several people suggested that Haley deserved to be booed because she was part of the Trump administration, and because of her record on gay rights.

"I'm going to stand by the people of this state, stand by the constitution, I'm going to support it and fight for it every step of the way", she added.

However, comments made in January 2016 suggest Haley has come around to the idea of marriage equality, when she promised a Republican president would: "respect differences in modern families". Many members of the LGTB community had raised concerns over recent acts of Trump's administration. "Sorry but guilt by association".

He added: "Yes, you did not deserve it".

Haley's service in New York City comes during the first Pride parade of the Trump presidency.

Organizers say the nationwide pride events were about pride but were also protests.
