Their friends told them they saw the photo of Person and Yang, who were holding hands in the picture, at the counter of another ride at the park. However, the photo had been strangely doctored with a thought bubble that reportedly said "Were [sic] Fags!"
Needless to say, the two men were, uhhh, not amused, and yesterday they filed lawsuit against the Santa Clara amusement park accusing it of sexual harassment.
Jim Stellmack, a spokesman for Great America, told SF Weekly, "We don't condone this by any means, and at the time we took appropriate actions." Stellmack added that Great America had "made attempts to resolve the issue with the individuals, but it was unsuccessful."
If you're a little worried that your own roller coaster ride photos might also be photoshopped or manipulated, here's some good news: Stellmack says that Great America does not keep the photos, other than for display purposes as product samples.
He told us that he's not sure how photos are selected to be used for display, but said that the displays are not regularly updated, and the computer systems are set up to purge photos after each ride.Follow us on Twitter at @TheSnitchSF and @SFWeekly.
