Stonewall Inn Basher Matthew Francis Doesn’t Know What He Should Be Sorry For

Still behind bars on charges of assaulting Benjamin Carver, Stonewall Inn alleged bathroom basher Matthew Francis, 21, says he’s “not going to say sorry, because I don’t know what I should be sorry for,” adding, “I don’t hate gay people. I don’t hate anybody.” Responds Carver: “I’m very surprised to hear that. [Francis] was the one who was hitting me, and then the other young man was the one who pinned me.” At the very least, I hope Francis — who needs $10k to go free, and is due in court tomorrow — got pee on his shoes.

    I wish Carver bit his eyebrow ring out. That would have been badass.

    Anyone else thing it’s odd that a 17 yo and 21 yo were hanging out? One is ostensibly still in High School. The other is legal drinking age… I don’t know… I wasn’t going out alone with 21 year olds when I was 17, maybe like a friends older brother on occassion… But yeah… seems odd to me.

    A camera in the bathroom would solve the whole thing (not that I’m espousing bathroom cameras, but remember how it solved the Nick Haramis “gay bashing” at the Corner Bistro).

    Why do gay bashers & haters use the “I have gay friends” or “I have a lesbian sister” response as a sufficient form of defense?

    It’s the classic straight guy’s response to homosexuality — Lipstick lesbians are totally hot, but butch lesbians & all gay men are disgusting & an abomination to God.

    So Matthew Francis is cool with the lesbians, and goes to lesbian bars with his lesbian sister. But he certainly hates gay men, so yes, he is a homophobe and a gay basher.

    Matthew Francis knew he was in a gay bar. He thought he could terrorize & beat up a “f—-t” and get away with it.

    Hopefully in prison, Bubba will make him go “gay for (no) pay”.

    @James: They’re saying “I’m not an asshole who beats up gay people, I’m an asshole who beats up *anyone*”

    Here’s an idea. After the Chilean miners are rescued, put this fucktard down there and blow up the hole.

    What an ignorant BOZO. He does not even know there was something wrong with what he did. I have a feeling he sniffs paint and glue too. That might explain a lot.

  • AdonisOfFire

    Cut his dick and balls off!

  • ewe

    He is blaming the minor because his charge may be more lenient if the minor takes all the blame. Is that the best his public defender will be able to come up with?

  • ewe

    What’s next? the panic defense?

  • Kev C

    He doesn’t feel sorry because he got his ass kicked by Benjamin and is the victim of his own stupidity.

  • wompman

    He should be sorry that he’s clearly an inbred bit of white-trash shit.

    And I agree with the questions of why the hell would a 21 year old be hanging out in a bar (a gay bar) with a 17 year old? Doesn’t seem like the brightest bulb on Staten Island, does he?

  • kalifani6

    He’s where he wants to be. After all, being in jail is the perfect excuse…right? So, of course he’s not sorry.


    He was either attempting to rob or hustle the victim. Sorry chubby ya gots caught.

    I would say man up and accept the consequences of your actions, but don’t think that one quite applies here…..

    He’s not sorry because he is uneducated and socially backwards. He does not know any better. His sister His sister’s a lesbian makes no difference to me. Period.
