Activists demand Florida Lt. Gov. apologize for anti-gay comment

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll made headlines after being caught in a sexually compromising situation with a female travel aide and retorted to reporters asking about the accusation that, "Black women who look like me don't engage in relationships like that."

Atlanta singer and activist Doria Roberts took to Twitter to voice her anger and began a trending hashtag #thisiswhatalesbianlookslike. She also wrote an open letter to Carroll for Huffington Post.

Now, a national petition drive has been started to demand Carroll apologize for her remark by Nadine Smith, executive director of Equality Florida.
