Gay couple kicked out of a cab for kissing

Steven White and Matt McCrea claim a cab driver forced them out of the car after a quick kiss. The couple plan to file a complaint wit the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.

CBS CHICAGO has the story:

Steven White and his boyfriend Matt McCrea were on their way from O?Hare Airport Thursday night, they tell CBS 2?s Brad Edwards.

During the ride, McCrea ?leaned over to look at something on the phone and then he leaned in to kiss me,? White recalls.

McCrea says it was a closed-mouth kiss that lasted all of a second. It did not go over well with their cab driver, the two men say.

?He indicated that it was a public mode of transportation and we shouldn?t kiss in his cab,? White says. ?He pulled the cab over and stopped and wanted us to get out ? on the Kennedy.?
