Controversy errupts after gay couple ejected from ride

Seattle Great WheelBY SARAH TOCE

Two Seattle men were riding the Great Wheel on the waterfront when they were shafted for unruly conduct by the attraction’s operator. One of the men has issued a public statement referencing homophobia as the reasoning behind the catapult.

Jason Jacobs and his boyfriend reportedly paid $50 apiece to ride in one of the Great Wheel’s VIP gondolas. The pair kissed and held hands when the ride suddenly stopped.
