CHICAGO — Kicked out for a kiss? A gay couple alleges an innocent peck nearly caused them to be ejected from their cab onto a rain-slicked Kennedy Expressway earlier this week.
Steven White and his boyfriend Matt McCrea were on their way from O’Hare Airport Thursday night, they tell CBS 2’s Brad Edwards.
During the ride, McCrea “leaned over to look at something on the phone and then he leaned in to kiss me,” White recalls.
McCrea says it was a closed-mouth kiss that lasted all of a second. It did not go over well with their cab driver, the two men say.
“He indicated that it was a public mode of transportation and we shouldn’t kiss in his cab,” White says. “He pulled the cab over and stopped and wanted us to get out — on the Kennedy.”
“He could have asked us to please don’t do that and handle the situation a lot differently than it was handled,” McCrea says.
