Burns tweeted at the @weatherchannel handle multiple times over the past few weeks, threatening to delete the app if it didn’t start displaying photos of Fort Worth. Eventually, he tweeted that he had deleted the app, with a picture to prove it.

The Weather Channel replied to his tweet with what reads like a sarcastic snipe at the councilman. Burns is openly gay and made headlines with an impassioned “It Gets Better” speech at a 2010 council meeting.
@JoelBurns Sorry to see you go. Good luck on ending bullying.
