The remarks

LOS ANGELES Kenny Golladay Jersey , May 7 (Xinhua) -- Residents in the western U.S. state of Wyoming continued a campaign this weekend by wearing colorful tutus to protest Republican Senator Mike Enzi's anti-homosexual remarks.

On April 25, when Enzi visited a high school in Wyoming, he was asked what he and other Washington officials would do for the queers in the state nicknamed "the Equality State."

"If a man wears a tutu in a bar and ends up getting bullied, then it's partly the man's fault because he 'kind of asks for it'," Enzi said,suggesting that LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) would face discriminations only if they are too open about it.

The remarks sparked an immediate backlash and Enzi apologized later that day for what he called "a poor choice of words."

However, the senator's backpedaling was too late to stop a protest started by local residents as well as institutes, media outlets and NGOs such as University of Wyoming, LGBTQ Nation, and Wyoming Equality.

Since April 28, thousands of photos showing local men wearing tutus to restaurants, parks, and bars had been posted and shared on social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

AmCuprill posted on her Twitter account a picture and said: "Hey @SenatorEnzi three friends walked into a bar wearing tutus and they weren't 'asking for it'."
