Shambling hordes of animated corpses are one thing, but when The Walking Dead aired a gay kiss on Sunday’s episode, unenlightened Twitter trolls shouted “Enough is enough!”
In the episode, Rick and the gang encounter Aaron, who brings them to his heavily fortified “community.” Aaron is then reunited with boyfriend, Eric, and the pair share a passionate kiss.
The bigots went into overdrive.
Last nights Walking Dead was really good except for the whole gay thing. Stop promoting sin to be okay.

I’m not a homophobic but that gay couple just ruined The Walking Dead — Bri Scott (@bri_scott34) February 23, 2015
gay guys on walking dead just made the show value go down.. — Adam (@AA_2105) February 23, 2015
For those of you who don’t watch, The Walking Dead has depicted a woman killing a mentally unbalanced child, cannibals amputating and eating a man’s leg, among other graphic sights.
And this dad is upset his children had to see a dimly lit kiss between two men.
Rest assured, sure: Given TWD’s track record, we’re sure either Aaron or Eric will end up zombies within a few episodes.
Watch the horrific smooch below.
