He Was Attacked By a ‘Model’ He Met Online. Because He’s a ‘Faggot’

Just a week after this, comes this: Canadian modeling agent Brandon Wright’s brutal attack at the hands of someone he met online.

After meeting a man in person who called himself Alex, purportedly looking for representation, Wright got into the man’s truck to, uh, look at something Alex wanted to show him. Then Alex delivered the line, “Because you’re gay you need to be punished. I’m going to fucking kill you and you’re a faggot,” before beating him with a heavy object while the car was moving and repeating “I’m going to fucking kill you faggot.” Wright jumped out of the moving truck, and bystanders — including, uh, “this thug guy” — helped. Wright headed to the hospital, was treated, and released.

Terrible stuff. But here’s what we learn: If you need to meet anonymous strangers from the web, do it in a public place (which Wright did). Do not get into their cars (which Wright did). And absolutely tell at least one friend where you’re going, with whom, and when you’re returning. Maybe even promise to call your friend at a certain time, and if that call doesn’t come, they know something is wrong.

Oh, and save your chat transcripts and photos. They’ll help police find your assailant.
