But there has also been some negative reaction to the post — proof in itself as to why a dad embracing his gay son is so important.
Louis Sr. said that one person suggested that he be fired from his job, while others have commented that they didn’t understand how he could “accept that” from his son.
“It makes me beyond angry,” Louis Sr. said. “Somebody is saying what about my son?
Louis Jr. said he tries to ignore the negative comments. “They try to give themselves power through us and if i let that happen, it gives them power,” he said. “If I stay quiet it gives them no attention and no attention is brought them.”
