Boston Pride reports it's rescinded an offer to Anthony Imperioso to be a marshal of the June 11 parade after it turned out he'd posted stuff on Facebook that some might consider racist and classist.
Imperioso, a Woburn police officer and president of the Gay Officers Action League of New England, was recently voted a marshal of the parade. But then people began to protest because of comments he made on his Facebook page about Black Lives Matter protesters - no longer visible on his page because he's made it private.
Boston Pride cannot condone those comments. After a discussion between Mr. Imperioso and Boston Pride, his marshalship has been withdrawn, and Mr. Imperioso will not be a marshal in the 2016 parade.
