The Australian Parliament votes in favour of redefining marriage and how do same-sex marriage supporters celebrate? By taking to their Twitter feeds and tweeting, “Eat sh-t Lyle.” The phrase has been tweeted so many times that it’s now trending globally. And given the behaviour of the YES supporters during the course of the survey, I don’t think anyone is even slightly surprised.
"Now I am become Lyle, the eater of shit."

Okay, so #eatshitlyle is trending.
Eat shit, Lyle. Lyle, eat shit. Lyle Shelton can eat some shit. You lost. Your outdated, bigotted views lost. Please go and eat some shit. Love won. You're exceptionally irrelevant now and also just the worst.
