The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office have issued an advisory notice to homosexuals that they need to be careful when travelling in America due to the US being: 'extremely diverse' when it comes to LGBT people.
Mississippi and North Carolina come in for the need for extra precaution as they have recently passed new laws which allow businesses to refuse service to LGBT people.
'It is both frightening and embarrassing that one of our nation's staunchest allies is warning its citizens of the risks of travelling to the US' said Ty Cobb of the Human Rights Campaign.
'It is now more clear than ever that these terrible measures are not only harming individuals and taking an economic toll on the states, but are also causing serious damage to our nation's reputation, and the perceived safety of LGBT people who travel here'.
Companies are curtailing their businesses in the states because of the law, and several entertainers have cancelled performances in both states over the law.
And we thought the only problem America had was the bat-crazy gun laws it holds and the scary religious fervour, now it has added rampant homophobia to its list of reasons the country has taken a wrong turn recently.
