Gay Radio Host Marcel Juul Østergreen Beaten in Homophobic Assault in Copenhagen
Marcel Juul Østergreen, a gay radio host in Denmark, was beaten on Sunday after emerging from a gay bar in Copenhagen, Gay Star News reports:
Speaking to ekstrabladet.dk, the PopFM DJ said he had seen a guy alone in his car who was speaking on the phone. After Østergreen’s friend asked him how he was, the man 'flew out of the car' and yelled 'Now!'.
"Then it just went quickly,' Østergreen said. 'Suddenly there were about 10 young guys around us. My friend was on the ground and tried to protect his face while they kicked and beat him. And then they came at me, and I got one blow after another."
Østergreen later wrote about the incident on Facebook, saying he felt "deep compassion for the unenlightened wretches" who attacked him.
