The recent controversy surrounding these cishet black comedians from Kevin Hart not taking accountability for his homophobic tweets to DL Hughley calling a transwoman a pussy for calling him out on supporting Kevin’s Homophobic “jokes”.

It’s all “jokes” about not wanting your child to come out queer not until queer people get hurt or end up dying. 

A Las Vegas couple survived an attack from two cishet black men who followed them home and ambushed them. The name of the victims in this hate crime was Charles and his boyfriend Vincent. According to the local news KVVU station the attackers, Kealan Abraham and Andre Duncan, attacked Charles and Vincent at their apartment home after they followed them from Vincent’s job.

Charles was about to open the door when he heard Vincent calling out for help as Abraham and Duncan attacked him. They called him an abomination along with other homophobic slurs and language. The attack became so violent that a glass table was knocked over and one of the attackers grabbed a shard and stabbed Vincent in his back. Charles reacted quickly and pushed him away from Vincent.

The neighbors did nothing during the attack. The police weren’t called until after the attackers drove away. The attackers broke Vincent’s ribs and punctured his lung. Charles was hit in the head with a piece a glass but the attackers left him traumatized that they would come back and attack him again.

They were both hospitalized from the attack however they’re now both out and are staying with relatives until they find a new permanent location to live.

Below are the mugshots of the attackers.

                           

At this time Abraham and Duncan have been arrested and charged with battery with a deadly weapon, battery with use of deadly weapon result of substantial bodily harm and conspiracy to commit criminal contempt.

Charles and Vincent were both relieved after Las Vegas Metropolitan police called them to inform them that their attackers have been arrested. However they’re wondering why both of them aren’t being charge with a hate crime.

You can support Charles and Vincent on their GoFundMe page.

This is a tale of warning for cishet people who are trying to defend anyone who supports homophobia. The rhetoric that you call “jokes” are literally getting people who identify within the LGBTQ spectrum attacked and killed all in the name of comedy.

Take accountability. Change your behavior. Educate yourself on marginalized issues and why we drag you when you tweet stupid stuff on social media.
