Fluke told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz yesterday that she considered Crowley’s comment “hate speech.”

“Well, you know, where I’m from, when someone tells you they’ve become engaged, you say congratulations rather than engaging in hate speech,” she said. “It’s certainly not the way I wanted my engagement to be greeted.”

“That said,” Fluke added, “I’m not going to let this kind of thing get to me personally. What really bothers me about it is exactly what you said, the blatant homophobia in the comment. The idea that’s an acceptable thing to say publicly.”
