A bus driver who allegedly refused to drive a Pride-themed bus because it “promotes homosexuality” has been suspended.
The Konectbus employee objected because the service number on front of the 501 service to Thickthorn was rainbow coloured.
He allegedly told customers in Norwich: “This bus promotes homosexuality and I refuse to drive it.”
According to Becca Sears, the driver then told passengers they would have to wait for him to swap buses.
She has since lodged a complaint with staff at the bus station, adding: “I’m aware everyone is entitled to their own views, however, if you can’t do your job properly because of your bigotry, maybe you need to rethink your choices.”
Replying to her on Twitter, Konectbus said it finds “this attitude, behaviour and level of customer service completely unacceptable”.
