Man walks out on dinner after homophobic comments 🚶‍♂️💔

A man shared how he walked out of a dinner with his girlfriend's parents after they made homophobic comments about his upbringing. The man was raised by his older brother and his partner after their parents passed away and they were the best dads he could have ever asked for. However, when he finally met his girlfriend's parents, they made derogatory remarks about his upbringing, calling his brother's partner a 'friend' and referring to them as perverted. This understandably upset the man, causing him to leave the dinner abruptly. While his girlfriend was upset with his reaction, his brother and his partner supported him but also advised him that he could have handled the situation better. The man is now questioning if he was wrong for his reaction. Read on for the comments and reactions to his post.
