In a screenshot that was shared on Facebook by his blogger friend, it was revealed that he lost the chance for possible employment after he was outed by a closeted gay man who works with the organization simply because he had previously turned down his request for a hook-up.
According to him, he was qualified for the position and even received a phone call from one of the staff who informed him that they were impressed with his interview performance and were looking to employ him, but only for him to later receive a shocking phone call from the organization informing him that they were no longer interested in hiring him because he is gay.
