Over 50 People Watched And Did Nothing As Gay Couple Were Bashed In NYC Subway

See No Evil

It turns out that over 50 people watched and did nothing as J.P. Masterson and his partner Peter Moore were physically attacked by a man screaming “I hate fucking faggots” at  the W. 4th Street subway station in Greenwich Village early last Sunday morning.

Said Masterson:

“I’m very disappointed that when the attack happened, no one on the crowded subway platform called police or did anything. There were about 50 people on the platform at the time.”

“I want my New Yorkers to step up and help me out, because, you know, at the end of the day, we’re all just people,” he said.

But as he waited to undergo surgery, Masterson vowed that he is bruised, but not broken. “You might beat me down, and I might look real grotesque right now, but I’m still standing,” he said

Disgraceful. The people of New York City should be ashamed.
