Lithuanian MEP told to apologise for ‘despicable homophobic remarks’ after calling LGBT+ people ‘perverts’
Lithuanian MEP Viktor Uspaskich has been ordered to apologise for anti-LGBT+ remarks or face removal from his political grouping.
Uspaskich, who represents Lithuania’s centre-left Labour Party in the European Parliament, faced anger over a live Facebook video.
In the clip on Sunday, he claimed: “Today, in some European countries, it is dangerous to say that you are a representative of natural orientation, it has already become dangerous.”
Referring to LGBT+ people with a homophobic slur, he continued: “Most of these people do not advertise, but those who put their d**k under a skirt and go into the street and shout, they are perverts, and such things must not be tolerated.”
