London, Feb.8 (ANI): A Tory councillor, who is under investigation for allegedly referring to homosexuals and victims of domestic violence as "the queen team" and the "scream team" at a public meeting, has said that the remark has made him a "gay celebrity".
Keith Parker provoked protests from fellow councillors when he apparently made the comment at a scrutiny board meeting held to discuss "equality and diversity".
But, according to The Telegraph, the 68-year-old has defended his remark and claimed it has made him "a gay celebrity".
The remark drove another councillor Karen Chilvers, a Liberal Democrat, to make a formal complaint. Parker may now be called before the council standards committee for an explanation. (ANI)
