A homophobe picked the wrong gay couple to mess with at a Manhattan bodega over the weekend and reportedly ended up fleeing covered in his own blood.
Larry Lennox-Choate (above left) and Daniel Lennox-Choate, who in 2013 became the first gay men to be married at West Point Military Academy, were shopping in SoHo on Sunday when a 40 year old man came up and began shouting anti-gay slurs. The homophobe’s big mistake though was throwing a punch at Daniel, leading Larry to step in and put the man in his place.
“He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is,” wrote Larry on Facebook. “We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves, but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.”
Larry said that the hate crimes division of the NYPD is investigating.
New York Daily News, which broke the story, adds that no arrests have been made yet.
