Gay Man Speaks Out About Homophobic Cane Attack by 71-Year-Old Woman: VIDEO


Lloyd Guerrero is speaking out about the attack on him by his 71-year-old neighbor Wanda Derby, who beat and tried to choke him with her cane, KHOU reports:

DerbyPolice say she was angry Wednesday night and yelled derogatory terms for a gay man. Authorities say the victim, who is her son's roommate, had bruises on his throat and body.
"She was hitting and screaming and hitting and screaming and hitting and screaming," Guerrero said.
The two live next door to each other in the Ash Park Apartments in the 3200 block of Ash Park in Richland Hills. Guerrero said Derby had been posting off-color comments about him and his family for the last month or so on her Facebook page. He said she posted that he was homosexual, which he is, but he said he had not been open about it.
"This is completely private," he said. "It's not anything I would ever in a million years post randomly. I'm the same as everyone else." Derby's own son is about to move in with Guerrero, and police say that is what provoked the Wednesday night attack.

  6. This is why we get gay bashed. We just stand there and take it.

    Rip the cane out of her hand and break it.

    If she comes at you and tries to hit you you push her away.

    If she keeps coming at you you body slam her.

    If she still keeps coming you plant the bottom of your foot in her chest.

    Man the f-k up

  11. That woman's Facebook wall is a HORRORSHOW. Sometimes I can't believe people like that really exist.

  13. Obviously this young man was raised right to respect his elders. Striking her back would not have accomplished anything but more resentment and hatred. He did the right thing to just block and get out of the way of the crazy woman and then call the police.

    I agree with one of the above to take the cane away from her and toss it far from the scene so as to minimize injuries.

  14. I'd hit him with my cane.

  17. Yes. She's horrible. She's a bigot. She's most probably demented. And no, she's not a criminal. She's probably senile, nuts, scared of f**king everything and stuck watching Horror Action FOX News all day. But it's embarassing to watch a grown man, cute or not, press charges against a geriatric curmudgeon.

  18. Hmmm, she's 71. Her SON is moving in with the hot twink next door. Methinks this has alot to do with her hatred of gays but also MORE to do with her 40ish? son probably being gay and her taking it out on the younger lover who she thinks lured her son into "the lifestyle"

    Sounds messy either way. Grandma better make sure they don't have Stand Your Ground laws in Texas before she tries that again.

  19. Nah, he needed to smack her. Don't just "take it." Knock her dentures out. She won't do it again. Put on you big boy pants.

  20. You KNOW the cops would be all over you for "hitting an old lady" if you struck back, but to stand there and let that old hag hit you with her cane? No way! There are ways of handling the situation to make sure she never tries it again AND don't end with you sitting in a cell. First of all take the frigging cane away from her!

  21. Why didnt he run away from her.was it out of respect? Or was it that he is a weak man? See this the reason why gays are stereotyped. Pathetic.

    Posted by: Eh | Mar 30, 2012 12:35:52 PM

  22. REALLY, Mark?! Then we get cast as a grandma-bashing, flaming f*ggots and NOM and Focus on the Family and all the horrible hate mongers like this ugly woman win. Stupid. We don't need to help them destroy themselves, they're doing just fine on their own.

  23. Self defense has nothing to do with manners.

    If a woman attacks a man with physical violence like another man she should expect consequences. I've seen a few butch lesbians learn that the hard way.

    You handle the aggression appropriately until it stops.

  24. If he had raised a hand to her, he would be the one going to jail.

    And everyone would be talking about what a he was horrible person he is to hit a 71 year old woman.

    If he tried to say she was attacking him, everyone would just laugh.

    He did the right thing. His bruises will heal, and she is on record as a homophobe.
