Student has perfect response to preacher who claims Sir Elton John makes you gay

A university student has given the perfect response to an anti-gay preacher.

The preacher claimed that listening to Sir Elton John can make you gay, among a series of other bizarre claims.

However he got more than he bargained for when a student decided to take his claims on – in an unlikely fashion.

Sir Elton John

The man was preaching at UC San Diego when the passing student decided to offer some commentary on his sermon.

The preacher claimed: “Now if you watch Lion King and you listen to one of his songs, that’s OK.

“But if you listen to Elton John all the time, you might get to gay.”

Instead of getting into a public row over his views, Jerry, the student, takes him on in epic form.

He climbs on to bins located next to the preacher and begins to paraphrase the preacher’s own words.

Jerry shouts: “You can catch gayness from Elton John!

“Please be aware!”

Jerry’s roommate later got in touch with The Tab to explain why they took on the preacher.

He said: “We indeed wanted to troll the preacher by belittling him.”

He added: “Jerry Ramirez is a student of Visual Arts and aspiring actor.

“It is true that he is from New Zealand. He did some other crazy performances as well, such as eating five bananas with the peel on in 10 minutes…

“Jerry stood on this dumpster for full 30 minutes, so the 12 minutes are already a compilation.”
