Austin, Texas - Buckle up, folks, because the Lone Star State is buzzing with debate after a gay man's TikTok post sparked a fiery conversation about the presence of straight women in LGBTQ establishments. Known as @cherubex, this Texan shared an incident from an Austin bar where he made a bold move by removing a bachelorette party crown from a bride's head after she offered his partner a less-than-appetizing drink. Although @cherubex's TikTok account has mysteriously disappeared, the repercussions of his statement are still causing quite a stir online.

While it's unclear whether the deletion of @cherubex's account is directly linked to the backlash he faced, people wasted no time expressing their opinions on the matter. TikTok user Jen (@kreativ.jen) came to the rescue by reposting the video, giving others a platform to air their thoughts. Let's just say the response hasn't been all rainbows and unicorns.

In the video, @cherubex recounted an encounter during a "gay night" at a local bar where a bachelorette party was also in full swing. The bride had previously voiced her disdain for the cocktail she had ordered. However, things took a twist when she turned to @cherubex's partner and offered the revolting beverage to him, seemingly contradicting her previous statement.

Fueled by a mix of shock and indignation, @cherubex took matters into his own hands. He plucked the bride's crown from her head and sent it sailing across the room. As if that wasn't enough, he also directed an unfortunate choice of words at her, causing her eyes to well up with tears.

The comment section of Jen's reposted video is an absolute frenzy, with viewers expressing their disapproval of @cherubex's actions. Some individuals made it clear that while they may not be fans of bachelorette parties, they still believe the treatment the bride received was unwarranted.

"Ugh, bachelorette parties get on my nerves, but this just made me so sad for her 🥺," lamented one user. "Let's not forget that lesbians can have bachelorette partie too."

Jen captioned her post as "thinly veiled misogyny of gay men," suggesting that @cherubex's actions may have been driven by deep-rooted prejudice. She went on to argue that if a straight man had been in a similar situation, @cherubex probably wouldn't have reacted in the same way.

"Straight men in Texas bars? They'd throw a punch, my friend, and that's a fight you might not win," Jen directly addressed @cherubex. "The reason that girl didn't retaliate is simple—she knew you were bigger and stronger."

This incident has ignited passionate discussions about appropriate behavior and attitudes within LGBTQ spaces. It has also highlighted the importance of recognizing power dynamics and promoting respect for all individuals. As the online conversation continues to evolve, we eagerly await how this controversy will shape the ongoing dialogue surrounding inclusivity and acceptance within the LGBTQ community and beyond.
