Found this in email from Molly this morning: apparently a male Dr Sketchy’s model got the shit beaten out of him in the street by some random scumfucks.
Last weekend in Portland, Maine a Sketchy’s model fell victim to a violent hate crime. Found unconscious on a sidewalk by a passing stranger, the 31 year old recalls little of the incident after sustaining a blow to the head. He was walking home after midnight on Friday, when two men approached him, spitting homophobic slurs and eventually resorting to violence, all because the young man “looked gay”. The victim… suffered a concussion and bleeding to the brain…
