Dave Small has been suspended after making nasty remarks about gays and immigrants.
He recently took the seat for Church Hill ward on Redditch Borough Council having won 665 votes, following recent local elections which saw Ukip came out on top.
But Mr Small now faces a formal investigation, the party said on Tuesday.
The action comes after Small reportedly wrote on Facebook in February 2013 that gay people are “perverts”, and should not be allowed to marry. He also allegedly wrote that immigrants from Mali are “scroungers.”
As divulged by this Web site on the 25th of May, the councillor singled out both Elton and BBC broadcaster Clare Balding, writing:
Small wrote on Facebook: “Why on earth is this useless Goverment pandering to Puffs? I refuse to call them gays, as what has gay to do with perverts like Elton John and Clair Balding [sic] who get their jollies in such disgusting ways. To sum up, they should not allowed to be married, they should go back to the closet.”
