Shocking footage shows the moment a man threatened to ‘beat the gay out of’ a man because of his tight shorts.
While in a McDonald’s branch after celebrating Pride in Barcelona back in June, Twitter user @paleo_20 posted a shocking video on social media showing the moment a heterosexual man threatening to attack him because he was offended by his outfit.
In the footage, the man is told: “I am going to beat you until you become heterosexual.”
The victim told security guards that he does not ‘need to tolerate a guy telling me how to dress’. But the aggressor replied: “I am telling you to be discreet, you are in a public place. I don’t care if you are queer.”
After pointing out that it is Gay Pride Day, the attacker replied: “I don’t care what day it is, it is also a good day to punch you. Do you want to see?
“I am going to beat you till you become heterosexual. When you go out, I am going to hit you so hard your queerness will disappear.”
Police soon arrived but the victim reportedly did not want to press charges.

Hoy mi amigo ha sufrido un ataque en un McDonalds de barcelona por su forma de vestir tan “femenina”. Es irónico que esto pase el mismo día que el pregón del pride pero hay que seguir luchando para acabar con estos actos y estas personas. pic.twitter.com/N4yu9DJIYg
