A Homophobic Preacher On Campus Was Quickly Shut Down By A Quick-Witted Student

He was out of his league

The students of the University of California, San Diego were subjected to an unwelcome presence on their campus several weeks ago when a preacher started scolding passing students for the inclusion of homosexuals in their lives and schools.

As one would expect, most students passed by the loudmouthed homophobe without giving him a second thought, but one brave soul decided to turn the unpleasant event into an opportunity for some genuinely funny performance art.


He apes the preacher’s sentiments in a southern drawl, creating weird taglines and rhymes for the bigoted beliefs. The preacher, naturally, doesn’t know what to make of this student towering over him atop trash cans. Is he an ally? A troll? An enemy?

It’s clear to the guys filming the run-in that this student is mocking the preacher, but that doesn’t keep the gag from running on for about 10 minutes as we see a hate-filled man get upstaged by a smart-ass college kid in a hoodie.

You’d think that the preacher would get wise when the kid screams that cigarettes cause homosexuality, but...no. Never underestimate the power of denial when people want to validate their own beliefs, no matter how far off the mark they are.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
