Gay Guy Pranks Straight Men By Pretending To Be Their Grindr Hookup
What's your take on this type of prank from Break.com, Instincters?
A gay guy approaches random straight men (generally accompanied by their friends) and pretends to be their Grindr hookup, leading to embarrassment and potential lashing out from the ambushed straight dude. (And exposing all sorts of weird homophobia in the process.)
Hilarious? You tell us.
We were admittedly kind of uncomfortable throughout. Would the ambushed straight guy punch the gay guy in a moment of alleged "gay panic?" Is accosting this guy with the "accusation" that he's gay in front of his presumably straight friends weirdly gay shaming? Are the guys that are being pranked all extremely homophobic??
We just wanted to laugh--we love a good prank (and Break.com has plenty of them!)--but we were left questioning the execution and the results. What did you think, Instincters?
