Gay Couple Assaulted By Rowdy Knicks Fans

Porto and his partner, enjoying the warm weather along with the rest of the city, were knocked to the ground and beaten by a crowd of rowdy New York Knicks fans shouting homophobic slurs — in broad daylight, just steps from Madison Square Garden, the victims said.

The couple was assaulted by four men on Eighth Avenue, between West 34th and West 35th streets about 5 p.m., cops said — as the Indiana Pacers played the Knicks on Sunday.

Another reason to hate basketball

Why would you hate basketball when the first out player came out in basketball? No one is messing with him.

WHY would I love basketball just because one of the players is gay. r4? I don't like basketball. I don't care who is playing that boring shit. Is that okay with you?

Uhm, it DID happen. The day is soon coming where some gays are gonna fight back with a gun, and blow a few of these shithead guy's faces off. I will giggle at the corpses and whiny parents, "He was such a GOOD BOY!"

R8 i Would love to know the whole story. You cannot assume this is true just because they throw a picture of a black man as the accused.

I wonder if everyone who engaged in the assault will be held accountable...

This story is airing right now on my local CBS station in New York City. The two men are saying it was a bias crime and they were singled out for being gay by four thugs near Madison Square Garden. They were called "faggots" by four men who were wearing Knicks hats and pummeled after one of the victims asked why they were calling them names. It happened, asshat @r6. One of them has a broken nose. His partner suffered an injury to his left arm.The arm is wrapped in a soft cast. Is that real enough for you?

We haven't heard the other side of the story.

Addendum to my previous post: The thugs were wearing Knicks shirts not hats. One of the gay men sustained an injury to his right hand and arm. Not his left arm. A still image of one of the thugs was caught on a security camera. Carry on.

Heard on radio two guys were attacked in Paris for holding hands on the street.

by Anonymousreply 2105/08/2013

The attackers have been arrested.

by Anonymousreply 2205/10/2013

Are these the same attackers? The article concludes by saying the police are investigating whether there's a connection.
