'Superman loves Louis Lane': Trump-loving lawmaker tweets hilarious typo in anger over new bisexual comic book storyline
It's official. There will be a bisexual Superman. And just as quickly as the news was announced homophobic conservatives went into overdrive.
The Superman is not Clark Kent but his son, Jonathan Kent, whose mother is Lois Lane, not Louis Lane, for those keeping track.
The New York Times reports Jonathan "will soon begin a romantic relationship with a male friend, DC Comics announced Monday." The reporter posted a "photo" of the new couple:

She was far from the only right winger (her bio reads: "Conservative America First Pro-Trump Republican," and "Air Force pilot, biz entrepreneur, homeschool mom. #MAGA") who is outraged, but she is getting mocked the most for it.
