I’m not very sure how to shorten it down, because there are a lot of details.
However, as the title says I reported my colleague and he was terminated.
My report was in relation to him calling me homophobic slurs and also making inappropriate xx comments towards me. When I would tell him not to make said comments, he would laugh it off and say “I grew up with gay friends so I can say fg”.
He would also make comments about another gay colleague and me basically insinuating that we would end up sleeping with each other.
I’m a 23 yr old gay man and my colleague was a 19 yr old gay man. The colleague in question is in his early 40’s and is a straight male. These comments would make me so grossed out and uncomfortable. Another colleague witnessed him saying “It’ll be no time until you’re both shng out each others d*ks” in regards to me and the other gay colleague.
She was very shocked and even told him that he was being hostile and inappropriate. He had also made comments towards me in settings outside of the workplace, and when I requested he stop speaking to me and keep the relationship professional he threatened me physically at a Halloween event.
After that specific incident, I reported everything to our manager and they fired him immediately. This has continued to cause me issues at work because some workers have taken his side and are now going around basically saying I overreacted and was wrong to report him.
What do you guys think?
