North Korea erupts with anti-gay tirade against UN Human Rights Chair

KCNA calls Kirby a "disgusting old lecher with a 40-odd-year-long career of homosexuality"

North Korean state media on Tuesday erupted with an inflammatory, anti-gay editorial targeting chairperson of the UN Commission of Inquiry (COI) into Human Rights in North Korea, Michael Kirby.

The Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) said it was "ridiculous" that Kirby, a "disgusting old lecher with a 40-odd-year-long career of homosexuality," should be responsible for investigating human rights.
