Son Berates Gay Father: What Would You Do?


O'Connor later explains to John Quinones that she is not the type of person to just sit back and not get involved when she sees others in need.

We come across one table of teens who had more of a blunt approach.

After Tyler finishes a phone call with a friend, telling him the news about his newly outed parent, customer Michelle Lapichino has something to say.

"I think you're acting ridiculous. That's your father. We're in the twenty-first century," the young woman tells Tyler.

The rest of the group at the table agrees. They all tell Tyler that he needs to accept his father for who he is and still love him.

At the end of the day we saw similar reactions to the ones expressed in the previous scenario of the homophobic parent. Most bystanders who spoke to us agreed that you should love the person for who they are and not for whom they love.

Watch the scenario unfold on a special episode of "What Would You Do?" Friday at 9 p.m. ET.
