Gay activists must be suffering from a shortage of beatings to exploit. Otherwise they wouldn’t need to fake them. Looks like we have another example in Calum McSwiggan:
McSwiggan, a YouTuber from London with more than 62,000 subscribers, said he was stalked by a trio of bigots, who ganged up on him in a vicious attack as he left [a gay club in West Hollywood].
“With three broken teeth and six stitches in my forehead, I’ve never felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye,” McSwiggan wrote in his post [on Fakebook].
His friend and fellow YouTuber, Riyadh Khalaf, who claimed to be with him that night, said the attackers had been following their moves on social media and called them out by their names as they beat him, he recalled on Twitter.
But when police arrived, they were “unable to substantiate the assault.” McSwiggan had no visible injuries.
Police then arrested him after spotting the vlogger vandalizing a nearby car.
McSwiggan was held in a cell alone, and was only hospitalized after officers spotted him beating himself with the handle and receiver to a pay phone inside the cell, deputies said.
Homosexuality and self-harm. They go together like summer and cold beer.
His mugshot — which police said was taken prior to the injuries — showed a clean face, with no cuts on McSwiggan’s forehead.
This may not be the most competently staged hoax we’ve seen, but it does earn McSwiggan a slot on the Hate Hoax List.
