Professional douche bag and admitted gay basher Tucker Carlson is accused of assaulting a gay Latino man inside a swanky Virginia country club. The incident happened on October 13 at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted a video of the Carlson shouting at Juan Manuel Granados inside the club, saying he and his legal team are “attempting to locate additional witnesses” as they build a case against the 49-year-old FOX News host.
“In particular, we need assistance identifying the balding man that grabs the man seated at the bar,” Avenatti tweeted. “We anticipate charges being filed. Anyone with knowledge, pls contact us.”
Shawn Pepas Lettman is a Lyft driver and father of two from Brooklyn. Last weekend, he found himself the target of a racist attack by gay Trump supporter who refused to get out of his car.
It all started when a passenger leaving a gay club requested Lettman change the music in his car. Lettman declined the request and the passenger became irate, prompting Lettman to pull over.
In the video, the passenger can be seen screaming into his phone at Lyft customer service, hurling racial slurs at Lettman, making offensive threats, and refusing to get out of the car until he is refunded his $8.01 for the ride and police arrive so he can file a report.
Azusa Pacific University, a Christian institution, has lifted its ban on LGBT relationships in its code of conduct. But the decision comes after years of previous resistance, and the school is now facing pushback over the change — particularly from one professor who says it’s now time for APU’s president to go.
video released Wednesday appears to show the graphic shooting death of a Texas man by his two neighbors. The video shows the three men arguing over trash before a man and his son fire their guns.
Johnnie Dee Allen Miller, 67, and his son, 31-year-old Michael Theodore Miller, were charged with first-degree murder in the death of 37-year-old Aaron Howard. A Sept. 1 argument over garbage between the three men ended with the Millers opening fire on Howard.
Three males in Washington state are seen on camera ignoring a store clerk who collapsed in front of them from an apparent medical issue, with the two young ones choosing instead to step around him to rob the store.

The unidentified clerk is in critical condition at a hospital fighting for his life, authorities said. The man suffered a heart attack, according to ABC affiliate KOMO in Seattle.
A federal judge denied a Christian conservative organization’s request for an injunction to fly the Christian flag at Boston’s city hall.
In front of City Hall in Boston, there are three flagpoles. One has the American flag, another flies the Massachusetts flag, and the third usually has the Boston flag on it but sometimes flies a flag associated with an event in the city.
It’s the third flagpole that really bothers Christian conservatives. That pole sometimes flies flags that they don’t like, like the flags of “Communist China and Cuba” (yes, their lawsuit really refers to China and Cuba in that way).
The man who got pummeled by Kourtney Kardashian's ex says he's going to sue Drake and Odell Beckham Jr. ... because he believes they're responsible for the attack.
The victim -- Bennett Sipes -- has lawyered up and they don't just have Kourtney's ex, Younes Bendjima?, in their crosshairs. TMZ broke the story ... Younes beat the crap out of Bennett outside Delilah restaurant in WeHo back in March, as Drake, Odell and their posses looked on.
Now that the religious right is reopening the culture war by solidifying its role in the Trump administration and the federal courts, it’s worth revisiting how anti-LGBTQ rhetoric has changed over the years.
As it turns out, it’s the same old wine–or, more accurately whine–in new bottles.
The animosity hasn’t changed, but the rhetoric has evolved to reflect the times. What may have been acceptable to most people as an argument 25 years would immediately be recognized today as the bigotry it is.
So the religious right has adapted to the changing landscape by using different arguments, even if many of the issues remain the same. Sometimes the language has changed, but a lot of times it has not.
The comedienne who was told she would never work again just played a sold-out show at the Dolby Theatre.
Kathy Griffin, who was dropped by her representation, fired by CNN and Squatty Potty alike, and put under a media blackout after she took part in a photo shoot that saw her holding a Donald Trump mask dripping in ketchup, implying the president had been beheaded, has been on a Laugh Your Head Off world tour to prove that just “because they tried to put [her] out to pasture” doesn’t mean she would moo, she said at her Los Angeles stop Thursday.
“It’s not all jokes tonight,” she said. “I’m also spilling piping hot tea.”
Calls are growing for the vice mayor of a California town to step down after he authored a column in a local newspaper declaring July "Straight Pride Month" and making use of demeaning LGBTQ stereotypes.
As previously reported at EDGE, it took less than a day for controversy to heat up after Ted Hickman, the vice mayor of Dixon, California, published the column in local newspaper the Independent Voice on June 29. The column featured an illustration of a rainbow flag covered with a red circle and slash, the international "not allowed" symbol. Despite Hickman's claim he was not promoting homophobic animus, his column was littered with anti-gay disparagements.
A GOP candidate is taking heat for comments he made calling diversity “crap” and “un-American.” And instead of apologizing, the New Jersey congressional candidate is doubling down. The April comments made by Seth Grossman, the surprise winner of last week’s Republican primary in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District, were posted in a video by American Bridge to the 21st Century, a political action committee monitoring GOP candidates.
“The whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American,” Grossman said at an April 21 event in Pittsgrove that made few waves at the time. The video was first shared with The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Diversity efforts, he continued, are “an excuse by Democrats, communists and socialists, basically, to say that we’re not all created equal, that some people, if somebody is lesser qualified, they will get a job anyway or they’ll get into college anyway because of the tribe that they’re with, what group, what box they fit into.”
A Republican from Hartford has said that businesses should be allowed to discriminate against people of colour, after a court ruling backed a bakery that refused to make a cake for a same-sex weeding.
Michael Clark posted the comments on Facebook, shortly after the US Supreme Court decided that the state of Colorado violated ‘religious freedom’ protections by ordering bakery owner Jack Phillips to cease discriminating against same-sex couples. ?
