Jessie Colter threatened with arrest and being called queer for wearing brief trunks
It looks like not everyone is ready for Jessie Colter‘s hotness. The gay porn star went to the Kentucky Kingdom water park today and wore his red brief trunks. There is no doubt that Jessie looks good in swimwear, but according to the water park and an LMPD officer he was probably looking a little bit too hot.
According to Jessie, he was threatened with arrest and being called a “queer” by an LMPD officer. “He informed me that several Public Safety Officers from the park had warned [me], which is 100% false”, says Jessie. It was actually one of the PSO’s who earlier said that it was okay to wear the brief trunks.
The police officer asked Jessie to leave the park or face arrest. Jessie, who is not amused, has chosen to leave the park. He hasn’t filed an official complaint yet, as he believes it’s more important to get the word out first.
The website of the Kentucky Kingdom water park mentions a dress code on their FAQ page. It says the water park reserves the right to determine whether a guest is dressed inappropriately, but is a red speedo really that inappropriate when you are visiting a water park?
Guests must wear shirts and shoes at all times while at Kentucky Kingdom, except when inside the Hurricane Bay water park. Proper swimming attire is required at Hurricane Bay. For their own safety, guests may not swim in cut-offs or other clothing with rivets, zippers, or buckles. Kentucky Kingdom is a family-friendly theme park and reserves the right to determine whether a guest’s attire is appropriate.
We have asked the water park for a comment, but we have not yet received a response at the time of publishing.
** Developing story ** – we will update this story as soon as more information is available.
UPDATE [July 10th, 2014] – We still haven’t received a response from the Kentucky Kingdom water park, but we did find a lady on Twitter who witnessed what happened.
UPDATE [July 10th, 2014] – The guys from the local news site Louisville.com picked up the story earlier today and they have received a phone call from someone from the water park. Kentucky Kingdom has promised to release a statement tomorrow.
UPDATE [July 11th, 2014] – It has been 4PM (local Louisville, KY time) and so far, we haven’t heard back from Kentucky Kingdom. They probably have been busy with hundreds of upset women, who started to complain after the park told a nursing mom to feed her baby in private. This violates the Kentucky state law, which says that nursing women are allowed to feed their kids everywhere.
While all of those women were able to complain and share their concerns on the park’s Facebook page, there have been stories of people complaining about the “speedo matter” who were blocked and got their message deleted.
In the meantime, more local news sources are picking up this story. The water park has today revised its breastfeeding policy and hopefully some sort of statement, regarding Jessie being kicked out of the park and being called a ‘queer’ by a police officer, will follow soon.
