Actually, this headline makes it even funnier:
'Mayor' of Hell bans all straight people from entering Michigan town
In a series of comical Tweets sent out on Wednesday, Aug. 30, comedian and internet personality Elijah Daniel explained that he was named the legal mayor of Hell, Michigan when he was presented a proclamation signed by former "mayor" Odum Plenty.
What happened is that the small unincorporated territory that is for some reason called Hell, Michigan has leaned into the name and created an attraction wherein you can be named mayor of Hell for a day for $100-110. So Daniel jumped on it and used his temporary power to ban all the straights.

"Growing up, I was always told that homosexuals would go to Hell," the notice reads. "Now, the heterosexuals are trying to take this from us, too."
Then, this national hero used the opportunity to make fun of Trump.
I love straights, but my #1 priority is the safety of my town. Until the heterosexual threat has been reviewed we cannot allow them to enter— former mayor elijah (@elijahdaniel) August 30, 2017

He was apparently impeached in under an hour, but he took it well.
Being impeached was fun @realDonaldTrump, you should try it.— former mayor elijah (@elijahdaniel) August 30, 2017
These are the feel-good stories America needs right now. Thank you, Former Mayor Elijah Daniel.
Now THIS is comedy.
