• Washington woman puts up rainbow lights after neighbor's anti-gay comments

    Updated:

    A Washington state woman decorated her lawn with a festive 10,000-bulb rainbow light display after, she says, her neighbor made anti-gay comments.

    Lexi Magnusson’s Christmas display in Silverdale went viral.

    “Basically she told us she moved here to get her children away from the gays,” Magnusson told Buzzfeed News. “She went on to tell us how horrified she was when her son got turned down for prom because the girl was already planning on going with her girlfriend.”

    “I told her that kids were going to be exposed anywhere she went and that I was glad that kids these days get it and aren’t horrible to each other because of who someone is or how they were born,” Magnusson said.

    According to Buzzfeed News, Magnusson said her neighbor doesn’t acknowledge her anymore, but the support from people online has been positive.
