Just before the French National Assembly voted to make same-sex marriage legal just hours ago today, the hashtag #ilfauttuerleshomosexuels, which loosely translated from the French means “homosexuals must be killed,” was trending in France.

A search of Twitter via Storify netted over 4700 tweets with the Hashtag, although some certainly were expressing anger against the sentiment.

“It is unknown where ‘Il Faut Tuer Les Homosexuels’ started from, but thousands of social networking users are tweeting about the trending topic,” Gay Star News reports:

As points out, many are pointing to a user called Mamadou Neutron for the original tweet.

He has since deleted the tweet but continues to publish homophobic messages.

While some anti-gay Twitter users have just posted the hashtag, others have added messages like ‘Kill them all’ and ‘For a better world…’

Gay rights organization SOS Homophobie is inviting everyone to screen capture the homophobic tweets and send the pictures to them.

They wrote: ‘Waiting for your screen captures of homophobic tweets on Twitter #ilfauttuerleshomosexuels.’

Some of the tweets also read, “Pour un monde meilleur,” which means, “For a better world,” or “c’est la jail qui t’attend toi,” meaning, “it is the jail waiting for you.”

Below, we captured some of the tweets from early on:

The anti-gay money trough in the US is drying up. The aggressive pro-homophobia lobby here realizes that they need to go international in order to maintain their bloated paychecks. This is the sad result of their meddling in the affairs of other nations. As the saying goes, "Money is the root of all evil."
