The Walking Dead’s Gay Kiss Ignites Controversy Online

the_walking_dead_aaronLast night saw the introduction of the characters Aaron and his partner Eric on The Walking Dead, and as soon as they shared a kiss, half of the fans went berserk and tweeted disgust about the inclusion of a gay couple. Nevermind that Tara, a lesbian, has been apart of the cast since season 4, but when it came to two men kissing, that was the final straw for some.

Longtime readers of the comics knew about Aaron’s sexual orientation for awhile now, but to some of the viewers watching last night, homosexuality alive and well during the zombie apocalypse was more upsetting than any of the gory deaths, child killing, or cannibalism that have been constantly present in the past five seasons. Warning, some of the tweets have explicit language.

Yes, won’t someone think of the children??
