In an apparent anti-gay attack, a seemingly drunk traveler attacked what he clearly assumed was a gay man at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport yesterday.
From Raw Story:
The video is dated Thursday, October 23, and shows an unnamed angry man bellowing and threatening another passenger who is wearing a jacket and a pink shirt.
A tall man in a black cowboy hat approaches and asks the angry man what he’s upset about.
“Queers!” the man shouted. “That’s what I’m upset about. This faggot right here.”
After a tense exchange, the angry man kicks the man in the pink shirt, then slaps at him and grabs his hair.
A number of people rush to intervene as the man is tackled and put on the floor.
The man in the cowboy hat can be heard saying loudly, “No way! No way, you motherfucker. You ain’t doin’ that fucking shit, motherfucker.”
You can hear the man as he’s being handcuffed saying “I punched him square in the mouth in the fuckin’ mouth is what I did. Because this is America. When I get up I’m gonna beat the shit out of him.”
Props to the folks who jump in so quick. AND to Andrew Kennedy who captured the scuffle on video.
