When there is so much division, hate and unrest, why on earth would you want to have a party celebrating any of it?"
A day later, officials issued an apology for the statement on behalf of the city on Facebook and Twitter, where it attracted thousands of likes and comments.
“The City of Orlando sincerely regrets the negative impact our words have had on some in our community,” the statement read.
"Very sad that this level of disrespect for our country has infected the City in this way," one Facebook user replied to the apology post.
A recent NPR/PBS/Marist poll found that a majority of Americans — 56% — say they oppose the high court's decision.
"You said what a lot of us are thinking and expressing to those around us," a Facebook user commented under the city's apology.
"Not only should you not apologize, you should be applauded for raising what so many of us are feeling.". »
