UPDATE: Arrest Made In Assault On D.C. Drag Queen
Updated Wednesday, 2:40 p.m. PST
An arrest has been made following the assault of drag performer Heidi Glum in Washington, D.C.
The victim says that two girls began making derogatory comments about her makeup and shoes before the situation escalated. “The Latino girl was touching my face telling me I needed to blend my makeup while her African-American friend was trying to bully me for wearing Christian Louboutin heels," Heidi (Miles DeNiro) tells Queerty.
Soon, the two parties were exchanging punches as a group of men encouraged the fight, with one recording it on his cell phone while shouting "World Star," a reference to Worldstarhiphop.com, which is known for publishing amateur fight videos. His title for the video? "Tranny Tells Girl She Has Aids After Bleeding In A Throw Down In Local DC Pizza Restaurant."
DeNiro didn't file a police report immediately after the altercation that left him bloody and bruised because he was "waiting for a video to surface to help support my case." Instead, he took to Twitter to use a slur against his attackers:
The two women seen in the video have also filed their own police reports, according to the MPD.
