A homophobic man was subdued by airport officials and bystanders at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport last week after he taunted another passenger who was wearing a pink shirt.
According to a video posted on YouTube, the man, unprovoked, took off his jacket, threw it on the ground, and proceeded to taunt the other passenger who was waiting in line to board his flight.
One passenger approached the man and asked him what he was so upset about, and he responded, “Queers is what I am upset about! This fa***t right here!”
He then kicked the pink-shirted man in the crotch and slapped him on the head. He was promptly tackled by bystanders.
Asked why he acted that way, he said, “You want me to tell you the reason why I did it? Because this is America, that’s why. The same reason you [an airport official who subdued him] get to live to breathe to walk black.”
Onlookers speculated he could have been inebriated, but that has not been confirmed. The man has not yet been identified by police.
