US Journalist George Will, has called the gay community “sore winners” over vetoed legislation in Arizona.

Last week Govener Jan Brewer, vetoed a bill that would give business the right to refuse the custom of LGBT individuals on the basis of religious freedom.

Speaking to Fox News, Will, a regular contributor to the channel, discussed his views on the vetoed legislation. He spoke about people of the LGBT community, claiming that they are now forcing business’ to take their custom.

He continued to say, “It’s a funny kind of sore winner in the gay rights movement that would say, ‘A photographer doesn’t want to photograph my wedding — I’ve got lots of other photographers I could go to, but I’m going to use the hammer of government to force them to do this.’… It’s not neighborly and it’s not nice. The gay rights movement is winning. They should be, as I say, not sore winners.”
