Hell, Michigan Renamed Gay Hell, Michigan By New Owner
So we all know about the little town of Hell, Michigan. Well a rapper and YouTube star, Elijah Daniel, says he's the new owner of Hell, Michigan, and he's renamed it. Daniel, who is 25, announced on Tuesday that he bought the town of Hell, Michigan, and officially renamed it Gay Hell, according to Local 4. Back in 2017 as a stunt, Daniel was also Mayor of Hell and banned heterosexual people in the town.
According to Daniel, it's an act of protest against the Trump administration recently rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow flag, a symbol of gay pride, during the month of June in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month. In his Twitter post he proclaimed, "Ahead of pride month, Trump’s administration put a ban on embassy’s flying pride flags. So as of today, I am now the owner of Hell, Michigan. I bought the whole town. And my first act as owner, I have renamed my town to Gay Hell, MI. The only flags allowed to fly are pride."
The "Only Pride Flags" part was a funny joke, but intended to get his audience politically aware. Daniel said he can't disclose how much he paid to be mayor for two weeks, but he is in the process of purchasing the town permanently, according to CNN.
