TwitterHumberside, England, police grilled Harry Miller for 34 minutes after he "liked" a limerick posted to Twitter they believed mocked transgender people. Miller does not live or work in Humberside but says cops told him someone had filed a complaint against him. Miller says the constable he spoke to said it would be recorded as a hate incident and warned him he could lose his job. "We take all reports of hate incident seriously and will always investigate and take proportionate action," said a spokesman for the police department.
