Two men have been charged with a hate crime after an attack on a gay man in the bathroom of a historic gay bar in downtown Manhattan early Sunday morning
Could this be as depressingly stupid as we are thinking?
The 34-year old victim, whose name is not being released, was at a urinal inside the Stonewall Inn when one of the defendants allegedly asked him if he was gay, according a news release from the district attorney’s office.
When the victim responded yes, Matthew Francis, 21, allegedly yelled, “Get away from me f—-t. I don’t like gay people.”
How stupid do you have to be to experience surprise at finding a gay guy in a men’s room at a gay bar? Not that homophobic assholes have been known for their brilliance, but this just sets a new standard.
