Women Allegedly Ask Same-Sex Couple to Stop Kissing in Public in Viral Clip

A video showing a group of women being confronted by Sacramento poolgoers has gone viral. The group had allegedly asked two women to stop kissing in front of their kids.

The clip, originally posted by witness Arthur Kaligos on Instagram on May 31, shows those in the pool chanting "shame" at the group of people, who each gave their response to the camera.

Kaligos later told Newsweek the "shame" chant was a take on the popular "walk of shame" scene from Game of Thrones.

"This woman asked a female couple to stop kissing in a public pool because her kids were present. So we gave her the Cersei Lannister treatment while they were escorted out by security," he captioned the video.

The incident occurred at Sawyer Hotel on Sunday, May 30.

In the footage, a woman with blonde hair begins by flipping off the camera while telling them to "f*** off."

Another woman then asked if they have any children. When a man responds that he doesn't want any, she jibed back: "Good, because you'd be a f***ing terrible dad."

As the poolgoers continued to chant at the woman, she responded: "I have never met anyone like you guys," and "I have never been more embarrassed in my life."

"I am a Jewish woman from New Jersey and you're a disgusting piece of s**t," she told them. In response, someone off-camera shouted, "You're suburban," at her, to which she responded: "I live in Oakland you f**king a**hole."

A man with the group continued to point out the presence of children.

Domonique Veasley, one of the women allegedly asked to stop kissing, claimed to KOVR that although straight couples were kissing too, only they were asked to stop. Veasley alleged that two women from the group approached her on two separate occasions.

"My initial reaction for the children was, 'Oh yeah,' and then I was like, 'You are asking me to stop being me'," she told the station. Veasley has been contacted for additional comment.

Kaligos recalled to Newsweek: "The women asked a queer woman of color to stop kissing her female friend in front of their children, despite there being many other white, straight people in the pool being just as affectionate. The young woman responded to the group of mothers by calling them racists and homophobic for targeting her."

"When the group of white women were asked by security and other bystanders to apologize, they refused unless they received an apology for being called racists by Dom," he added.

Veasley also recalled that she believes the group of women called security on her and her partner, who then asked her to discuss the situation out of the pool.

"People were mad at the group of mothers and there was also confusion, especially by other parents who had kids in the pool who witnessed this woman hurling profanities at us," explained Kaligos.

According to Kaligos' Instagram post, the group of women were then escorted out by security. Newsweek has contacted the hotel for comment.

"This is not okay anymore, it's 2021," said Veasley to CBS13. The video comes at the start of Pride Month, a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

In a statement to CBS13, the hotel confirmed an incident occurred but didn't specify any details: "The Sawyer does not condone discrimination or verbal assault of any kind. An unfortunate disagreement between guests occurred at our pool over the holiday weekend and the matter has since been resolved. For any raised case of guest discrimination, we always seek to investigate the matter and diffuse the situation with our trained staff, responsible for looking after the safety and security of our guests and associates."
