Gay Couple's Wedding Heckled by Anonymous Jerk

A male couple named Oscar De Las Salas and Gary Jackson were getting married on a park in Coronado, CA. Unfortunately, their wedding was heckled from some jerk in a nearby condominium:
Around sunset that day, the happy couple walked in, took their positions and stood in a grassy spot near the water. The music died down and the shouting began. Cell phone video shows the officiant standing in front of the couple while someone is shouting the words "homos" and "go home homos." The shouts were loud and unmistakable. From the balcony of a nearby pricey condo complex, the couple and their wedding guests heard a string of homophobic slurs. "He really wanted to humiliate the people there. He said, 'go home f***,'" said wedding musician David De Alva... "During the wedding vows, everyone stopped and turned," said De Las Salas.
The couple later complained to the city of Coronado and to the condo complex's HOA and received letters of apology from both entities.

But can you imagine if a gay person did this to a het couple's wedding?

Looking at the comments section, you will read several comments from folks saying stuff like "free speech," "this is news?," "shake it off," and "blah blah P.C. blah blah."

This was this couple's wedding. This wasn't a political event. This wasn't a TV show. This wasn't a sporting event. This was one everyday couple's wedding and it was spoiled by some asshat who didn't even have the balls to let them see his face.
