The online petition argued that ‘Gaytime’ was offensive to the LGBT community.
‘AS IF you’d rename Golden Gaytime ice cream… NO one cares… I’m gay and have never questioned it,’ he wrote on Facebook.
‘It’s an ice cream hun. Get over it. (Also I just don’t question or get offended by the names of things because I’m not hectic like that.)’
