YouTube footage of LGBT hate crime goes viral
On Sunday night, after Pride festivities in New York City, two men on the F Train assaulted a group of LGBT youth. Footage of the incident has gone viral on YouTube, and the concerned citizen behind it is asking for help identifying the two men, whose faces can clearly be seen on tape.
One of the men loudly threatened to rape a gay man, and another physically assaulted the woman filming. Concerned bystanders repeatedly ask her if she’s OK. One man gets in between the youth and the other assailant and asks him to calm down, but he points at the woman filming and continues his tirade. The video, titled “LGBT Hate Crime New York Subway” currently has more than 75,000 views.
