Sheriff's deputies in Los Angeles are doing just that.
An openly gay YouTube star claiming to be the target of a hate crime may have faked his own assault.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department disputed Calum McSwiggan’s claims of assault on Tuesday, saying that the vlogger injured himself in prison after being arrested on suspicion of vandalism.
The self-proclaimed LGBT lifestyle YouTuber wrote on Instagram and Facebook that he was brutally beaten by three men in West Hollywood after visiting gay club The Abbey following VidCon. He claimed he was left with three broken teeth and six stitches in his forehead.
There are homophobes in West Hollywood?“The authorities should have been there to help and protect me, but instead they treated me like a second-class citizen,” he captioned a photo of himself bandaged in a hospital bed. “I’ve never felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye.”
I believe a straight man would be the more likely victim of such an attack.
Please purchase my book "Trump the Press" through Create Space, as I get a larger royalty. It is a subsidiary of Amazon. The book will take a few days to be listed on Amazon, likely July 8. I have no control over that.
Also, please post a book review on the Amazon site. That helps attract other readers.
