Man Claims Lesbian “Lick” Drove Him To Road-Rage Homicide

Jon David TafoyaForget the Twinkie defense: A man from Orange County, California, claims seeing a lesbian couple engage in some PDA forced him into a frenzy that ended with the death of two innocent motorists.

Back in 2005, Jon Tafoya (right) and his girlfriend were enjoying dinner with another couple in Mission Viejo, when the other woman jokingly licked his girlfriend’s clothed cleavage.

Tafoya, 28, stormed out, hopped into his Chevy pickup and started driving like a madman. When police stopped him, Tafoya disobeyed an order to turn his car off—instead speeding away at 90MPH on the wrong side of the road.

Things came to a tragic end when he smashed into another car head on, killing two people inside.

When he was arraigned, Tafoya said it wasn’t the beer, tequila, cocaine and marijuana in his system that made him go loco—it was “witnessing an act of lesbianism that offended his moral standards,” reports OC Weekly.

Well, naturally.

Then again, Tafoya does have a rap sheet—one including convictions for DUI, cocaine possession and masturbating in front of a 14-year-old girl—so we’re not sure how credible his claim is.

In 2008, he was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder and sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.

    I can understand where he was coming from. When you see something that effects you, you can’t help but react. In the same manner when I hear about people like Jon Tafoya, it makes me react…I shake my head in disbelief and hope he gets some fucking help!

    Know how he feels, after having to watch hets constantly slobbering over each other
    in public for years. Talk about rage.

    Lesbian love is largely counterfeit. It reflects the counterfeit nature of female sexuality
    in general. Women are fakes, basically.

    Waif – the other woman licked *his* girlfriend’s cleavage, or her own girlfriend’s? I’m confused. If it was *his* girlfriend’s cleavage that got licked, that kind of changes the story, doesn’t it?

    @Brian: Insanely misogynist much?

  • 2eo

    @jackpapa: Brian is a trolling account, his stick is misogynism and hatred of black people.


    What a strange story. I don’t understand why a girl licking your girlfriend’s chest would make you fly into a rage. He probably has other problems, too.

    When in doubt, blame the gays, right?

  • DarkZephyr

    So there was no actual lesbian couple involved?

    A few comments. I think it was a typo.(obviously!)I love niles comment and Brian is a douche. I’m just in a silly mood!

    @Jhineugene: Sure, it makes it easy to see why he was angry, but THAT angry, and that means it was ok for him to drive like a %#$^#$%[email protected]? And he should get a reduced sentence for that?

    Brian thinks sex is only real if there is a penis involved. Just like certain family members think if something was xyz in their life it must be xyz in mine.
