‘A-List: Dallas’ Cast Member Taylor Garrett Insists GOP-Bashing Hate Crime Against Him is Real

In an interview with the Huffington Post, A-List: Dallas cast member Taylor Garrett insisted that the rock thrown through his window with a Republican-hating note attached is a real attack against him (despite the broad consensus of most outside observers, and the face that it took him four days to report it) and not something he made up as a publicity stunt for the reality show, which premiered last night.

There's a group of people that have a hate website out on me. I don't think they did it — who knows who did it? Obviously someone who doesn't like "twinkly Republicans" [laughs]…I don't think a straight person would have written that because straight people don't use the word "twink," you know?"

Garrett also says he disagrees with everything Ann Coulter believes about gay people:

I don't agree at all with any of her gay stances. I support gay marriage. I am very happy "don't ask, don't tell" was repealed. I admire her on her other conservative view points, like abortion. She's famous for being out there and I admire her in a way. But I want to make it clear: I do not agree with any of her views on the gays.

Garrett says he now feels like he has to watch his back:

It's actually made me very fearful because a lot of people were tweeting things like, "Too bad the gays don't know how to use guns and bullets instead of rocks." That's really scary. It has made me realize that I have to be a little more careful with my safety.
