As much as he loves the 'homosexual treat,' Leisner may have to be satisfied with generic-brand Cheerios from now on.
:: UPDATE :: Michael Leisner, Cheerios-burning homophobe, under criminal investigation

Michael Leisner's blundering brand of scorched-grass homophobia has cost him his job.

Leisner, the 65-year-old "mastermind" behind the hilariously clumsy Cheerios-burning General Mills protest video, worked as a real estate broker for Greater Midwest Properties -- until they decided to cut him loose yesterday.

According to the Joe. My. God. blog, Greater Midwest yesterday began emailing the following statement to folks leaving complaints on the company's contact page:
Thank you for your comment. Greater Midwest Properties does not condone or support the actions of our independent contractors. Also, Greater Midwest Properties does not support the alleged destruction of property. Therefore, the agent's license will be returned to the Minnesota Department of Commerce. Greater Midwest Properties has no involvement in this incident and it is unrelated to us serving our clients in a professional manner. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. - Greater Midwest Properties.
As much as Leisner apparently dislikes homosexuals, we have to imagine he's at least equally upset with his son today. After all, according to Leisner himself, the fruit of his loins posted the embarrassing clip to YouTube, where it's now been viewed almost 300,000 times. Because of the video and its blowback, Leisner and his family may no longer be able to afford burning unopened boxes of 'homosexual treat' Cheerios like it ain't no thang.

Good. It's time that bigots learned there are consequences for their behavior.

I was confused by this whole story because I couldn't figure out why a gay guy was protesting at Betty's place.  I guess this guy--who makes Marcus Bachmann look absolutely butch--was anti-gay.  i don't know if it was the pink shirt or that he was flaming in the video that confused me so much.

That was real? I thought it was staged. Why would you post such buffonery?

 @Frank Comments like that only continue the bigotry.  What is gay about the colour pink?  It's a colour.

 @ajpflumm Hey buddy, in America, pink is a color, not a colour, My great great grandfather died in the revolutionary war, before he coud even have any kids, so we drop the "u" from words like colour.  So I would appreciate it if you would respect that this is an American website.

@ajpflumm @Frank I'm sorry guys, please ignore this idiot. Not all of us Americans are so close minded and self centered.

 @Frank Hey buddy, in the world, America is only one country, and it's not even the best country in the world.  My ancestors couldn't care less about what your ancestors did because they're  all dead.  So I would appreciate it if you would kindly remember that the internet doesn't belong to just America.

 @Frank If your grandfather died without having kids he could not be your grandfather...lol and you misspelled "could".

American education rears it's ugly head again.
