Capps had three beers on the flight and went to the front of the plane to get more, but he was sent back and told to wait for the in-flight service. When the duty-free trolley came down the aisle, Capps took 400 cigarettes from it and hid them under his seat.
Flight attendants warned him to stop causing trouble, but then he attacked.

Religious exemptions are gutting civil rights protections, advocacy groups warn
The Trump administration's expansion of religious exemptions is undermining civil rights protections and codifying discrimination against marginalized groups — particularly LGBTQ people — according to a report released Monday by three research and advocacy groups.
Using a combination of new rules, legal interventions and newly created divisions, the departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor and State have all taken steps to advance "religious liberty," often at the expense of LGBTQ rights, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for American Progress and the Movement Advancement Project argue in their report.
The proposed rules — from the departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, Labor, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, Agriculture and Education, along with the U.S. Agency for International Development — would undo several Obama-era regulations, including those that require federally funded religious organizations to inform beneficiaries about certain rights.
For example, if a homeless LGBTQ teen sought help from a faith-based provider and the provider was not accepting of the teen's sexual orientation or gender identity, the provider would no longer have to inform the teen under the new rule about alternative providers that may be more accepting.
"These rules would be harmful to LGBTQ people, women, religious minorities and others during the best of times, but they're particularly unconscionable during a public health crisis when even more people than usual are relying on social services," said Rachel Laser, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, which was not involved with Monday's report.

Woman Records Racists She’s Met On Omegle During the Pandemic
Sophie Wang went on Omegle to find new friends during the pandemic. Instead, she was met with racist verbal comments, asking her if she ate bats and was accused of making the coronavirus.
There has been a rise in racist acts and xenophobia towards Asians and Asian Americans during the pandemic, and Sophie is one of many who have been calling them out.
One Omegle user called her “Ling Ling.” Another slammed his hand on the table and said he hated her for making coronavirus when she wouldn’t show her chest. Another user said there would be “no more of her kind” and he demonstrated that anyone with slitted eyes would be disintegrated by nuclear substance from “American nuclear missiles” sent to all of Asia.

Gun killings in U.S. cities: The scourge not even a pandemic lockdown can stop
A car pulled up to a convenience store, and four people hopped out. One had a baseball bat. What ensued was a fight over $180, one participant later said.
By the time it was over, guns were drawn, shots were exchanged, and one bullet tore into a nearby car, striking the head of five-year-old Kearria Attison.
The girl died. Before fleeing the scene, one of the people involved reportedly offered the girl's mother a quick apology.
Several people now face murder charges for the deadly shooting in Jacksonville, Fla., on April 6, which police say involved individuals with violent pasts.
"Too bad these criminals haven't taken time off during the COVID-19 outbreak," one woman posted on the police department's Facebook page.

Anti-LGBTQ hate group is behind bid to reopen churches & endanger communities
The anti-LGBTQ hate group Liberty Counsel, one of the groups that serve as the legal defense arm of the religious right, is helping to lead the push to reopen churches during the coronavirus pandemic.
The effort by evangelicals endangers the lives of parishioners and community members who would come in contact with the potentially infected churchgoers who had gathered in large groups.
The group is calling for churches to “ReOpen” on Sunday, May 3 following several instances of far-right ministers refusing to shut down services as part of measures banning large gatherings in a desperate attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
A Christian evangelist who mocked the response to the novel coronavirus pandemic has died after likely being infected while preaching on the streets of New Orleans. A Virginia minister who defied lockdown orders and vowed to keep preaching until he was arrested or died, saying he was protected by God, died less than a week later from COVID-19.

Lululemon Official Promotes Racist T-Shirt, Gets Fired for Being Racist
At the risk of stating the obvious, fashion has a long history of doing racist shit, and the outbreak of covid-19 has emboldened racists to become more vocal and casual with their racism. When those forces of intolerance combine, news like this emerges: According to Reuters, Trevor Fleming, a senior global art director for Lululemon, shared an Instagram link to an astonishingly racist t-shirt with a thinly veiled anti-Asian sentiment. Designed by an artist named Jess Sluder, the shirt features a Chinese takeout box with bat wings, and was labeled “Bat Fried Rice” on his webstore before being removed. On Instagram, Sluder posted the product with the caption, “Where did COVID-19 come from? Nothing is certain, but we know a bat was involved. Beginning today, my limited edition #quarantees are now available. Link in bio or DM for details…Thank you for your support and sense of humor! #humornothat #batfriedrice.”
Reuters reports that Fleming’s promotion of Sluder’s design resulted in the hashtag #LululemonInsultsChina, viewed over 200 million times on the social media app Weibo. That quickly translated to Lululemon’s official Instagram, where commenters expressed outrage over Fleming sharing the tee.

One Million Moms prove they are comprised of exactly zero mothers as they spend pandemic raging over gay cartoon ducks
One Million Moms have decided that the middle of a global pandemic is the right time to try and launch a boycott of Disney because of two minor gay characters in a DuckTales cartoon.
With schools shut down due to the pandemic, the online streaming service Disney Plus has become an invaluable tool for parents everywhere trying to keep their kids occupied.
But it’s apparently not so vital for One Million Moms, a front for the anti-LGBT+ fundamentalist lobbying group American Family Association, which despite its name has just 4,787 mostly-male Twitter followers.
Gay Jewish governor accused of Nazism – yes, really – for trying to save lives during coronavirus crisis
The Democrat, elected in 2018 as the first Jewish governor in Colorado and the first openly gay governor in the US, is currently facing strong opposition for retaining the coronavirus lockdown in his state, a decision which many Republicans are seriously comparing to Nazi fascism.
At a press conference on April 15 a reporter asked him: “We’re seeing a lot of rebellion out here against your orders, which have been called tyrannical against local health department orders, being equated to Nazism.
“How do you react to that? What do you say to those people who are clearly getting frustrated with this stay-at-home order?”
Gay men in Morocco living in terror after trans influencer urged her followers to use dating apps to hunt them and out them
Naofal Moussa, also known as Sofia Talouni, is a trans woman based in Turkey who – before her verified account was deleted on Friday – had more than 627,000 Instagram followers.
Starting on Monday this week, she used her nightly Instagram Live series – watched by over 100,000 people – to instruct the straight women following her to download gay dating apps from the app store and use them to find gay men in their vicinity.
Any form of same-sex intimacy – including kissing – is illegal in Morocco and punishable by up to three years in prison.
There is also no law against harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Multiple gay men PinkNews spoke to described how they are now living in a state of absolute terror: watching other gay men get outed on social media, beaten up by their families, kicked out of their homes, disappear and, in several, unverified, cases, die by suicide.

Irony: Hate Crimes Surge Against Asian Americans While They Are On The Front Lines Fighting COVID-19
There have been a lot of encouraging stories about peoples’ acts of generosity and kindness during the COVID-19 crisis. Unfortunately, human nature has its bad side too and the crisis has brought out some of our worst qualities including xenophobia, racism and, in some cases, violence.
Hate crimes against Asian Americans and Asian immigrants in the United States have been surging. It has ranged from verbal harassment to denial of services to physical attacks. There is no way to know, but President Trump’s insistence on calling COVID-19 the “China Virus” certainly doesn’t help. It is true that the Chinese government acted abysmally, for example, initially denying that the virus could be transmitted person to person. But China is hardly a democracy and the Chinese people were the victims rather than the perpetrators of this cover-up.
In fact, Asian Americans and Asian Immigrants to the U.S. deserve our thanks for their role in responding to the COVID-19 crisis. First of all, they are vastly over-represented among the front line medical workers who are treating those who have been infected. Seventeen percent of doctors, 9 percent of physician’s assistants and nearly 10 percent of nurses in the United States are of Asian descent.
Anti-LGBTQ hate groups on the rise in U.S., report warns
The number of anti-LGBTQ hate groups soared 43 percent last year, rising from 49 groups in 2018 to 70 in 2019, according to a recent report from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“Groups that vilify the LGBTQ community, in fact, represented the fastest-growing sector among hate groups in 2019,” the report states. The SPLC found the surge in anti-LGBTQ groups occurred amid an overall decrease in hate groups last year, which dropped to 940 from an all-time high of 1,020 in 2018.
The report said the surge was “possibly fueled by continued anti-LGBTQ sentiment and policy emanating from government officials,” largely attributing it to the Trump administration.

Gay man says he prefers having sex with straight men because they don’t want romance
A gay man has said he prefers having sex with straight men because there is no risk of romance or commitment.
The anonymous man described his unconventional sex life for The Guardian’s weekly column “My Life in Sex”.
He wrote: “There have always been men who have sex with other men, but don’t consider themselves gay or even bisexual.
“I should know; I’ve been sleeping with them since my schooldays.
“I prefer sex with straight men because they don’t want romance; with gay men there’s always the possibility that they could get the wrong end of the stick and want something more.”
