Rick Santorum jokingly chastised a boy for using a pink bowling ball during a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Wednesday. According to Reuters reporter Sam Youngman, Santorum told a boy who reached for a pink bowling ball: “You’re not gonna use the pink ball. We’re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera,” adding, “Friends don’t let friends use pink balls.” The Human Rights Campaign has issued a statement criticizing the remarks as “another example of Rick Santorum intentionally making ignorant statements that have a real impact on LGBT people” and JoeMyGod points out that Santorum is no stranger to pink fashion.
