Coleen Nolan faces calls for sacking after comparing gay rights to ISIS
Catchup News learns today that unsurprisingly Coleen Nolan is facing a furious backlash following her comments about the ruling made against the Christian bakery in Belfast that refused a customer’s wish to make a cake in support of gay marriage. Why are people so mad? Because Nolan very casually compared equal rights to a terrorist organisation. The Loose Women host likened the request to showing support for Islamic militants Isis – a group who have rather ironically been known to publicly execute gay people. She stated: "What if somebody walked in and said: ‘Right, I want a cake and I want the whole Islamic State on it – and how I support it, and how I support them killing our people.’ Because it is a business do they have to make it?” Nah, but that’s probably a whole different issue, isn't it Nolan? Janet Street-Porter indicated on air that she agreed with Nolan’s comments, as did the other hosts. Twitter however, was a whole different story. Some of the show’s fans even called on ITV for her to be released from her role on the panel, demanding an apology. The user @RealJayMann summed the reaction up pretty nicely, tweeting “Dear Coleen Nolan, being gay is NOT a choice, but being a murderous terrorist IS a choice. Think before you open that uneducated gob.” We can’t help but think that sometimes the Loose Women forget they’re on TV. More from Catchup News next.
