Whoops: Homophobe Picks Fight w/ Gay West Point Married Couple
A homophobe messed with the wrong guys when he attacked a gay couple that happened to be the first gay men married at West Point Military Academy.
The New York Daily News reports:
A hate-monger shouted anti-gay slurs at the first gay men to be married at West Point Military Academy before punching one of them in the face Sunday, police said.
The victim, Daniel Lennox-Choate, 30, and his husband, Larry Lennox-Choate, were shopping in a SoHo bodega during the incident, according to a Facebook post by one of the men.
A 40-year-old man came up and started yelling at the couple, police said.
The assailant punched Daniel, and his husband leapt to his defense, Larry wrote on Facebook.
“He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is."
“We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves, but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.”
The couple married in 2013. Daniel has a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard and served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
