Video – Security Guard At Zuccotti Park Calls Gay Veteran “Faggot” During Occupy Wall Street

Can you identify this homophobic douchebag?

This afternoon a well known gay veteran activist was videotaping the newly added security at Zuccotti Park in New York City after the Occupy Wall Street encampment was brutally destroyed by the NYPD earlier  this morning.  When trying to get any information from the stone faced Brookfield Properties guards one of them looked into the camera and called  gay six year army veteran  and LGBT activist Joey Boot’s a “faggot.”

“Your flys open faggot” the guard said in reply to one of Joey’s questions with a straight face and a mocking tone.  And when Joey called this rent-a-cop who has probably never seen one day in the military out he shut up and with just the smalled hint of a smirk turned and walked away.

CONTACT Melissa Coley Vice President, Investor Relations & Communications Brookfield Office Properties Tel: 212-417-7215 Email: melissa.coley@brookfield.com and Bryan Davis Chief Financial Officer Phone: 212-417-7166 E-mail: bryan.davis@brookfield.com and DEMAND that this security guard be fired IMMEDIATELY!

    1. Please be advised that these unprofessional, bigoted, goons are part of the security company called “MSA Security”. They can be reached at 212 945 0336 and there website is http://www.msasecurity.net. Brookfield should no just fire one man for this they should not permit MSA security to continue to provide security services under their representation.

  1. Good grief, they hire from the bottom end of the intellectual pecking order and put them right at the front lines of the most prominent place of political progress on earth.

  2. I called Melissa Coley and got her voice mail. I left a polite but firm message telling her she should be ashamed of herself and that his behavior was reprehensible.

  3. If Brookfield doesn’t fire him immediately I’d suggest calling and complaining to city hall since Mike Bloomberg’s live-on girlfriend Diana Taylor is on the board of director of Brookfield Properties. If they don’t fire him, ask Mikey B. why his girlfriend condones hate speech by employees of companies whose board she sits on.

  4. By calling the guard a d…..bag, you have lowered yourself to the same, name-calling immature level.

    Try elevating the discussion to one where you can make the point of the guards stupidity in an adult professional manner.
