Diners “were laughing instead of helping” gay couple being violently assaulted
Words: Ben Pulsford
A gay couple were reportedly left bloodied and beaten after being “viciously attacked by a group of men” at a restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona simply for being gay.
Sadly, this disgusting act of blatant homophobia is arguably not the most shocking part of the story, as while this was occurring, apparently diners sat back, watched, laughed and let it happen, while the restaurant’s security team reportedly completely failed to protect the pair. Sadly details are sketchy, but here’s what’s out there.
According to AZ Central, an Instagram account named @gayprideapparel – which has now been deleted, but just last week had 44,000 followers – was the first to post about the horrific incident at the Golden Margarita nightclub on 11 April.
