When the gay US Ambassador to Australia, John Berry, released a YouTube video last month to introduce himself to the nation, he referred to his "spouse," Curtis Yee. Peter Madden, a far right Aussie politician from the Family First party, took to Twitter in response to demand Ambassador Berry resign for "deliberate contravention of Aus law" and a "diplomatic slight." He also claimed that Berry got married shortly before assuming his post to "flaunt his agenda."

Berry has no intention of resigning.

And, of course, Madden is now playing the victim.

Berry's introduction video is after the break.
