Taylor Garrett claims he was attacked for being Republican and gay
Taylor Garrett, the gay “A-List Dallas” star claims he has been attacked for the second time in six weeks due mostly to his friendship with conservative pundit Ann Coulter.
Taylor Garrett is a 27-year-old Republican consultant who appears on the Logo network’s “A-List Dallas”.
The reality star said Saturday that he was at a party with some friends when he was accosted by an unknown male, who had scrawled “F*ck Coulter” on his car, and when he asked what he was doing, the person attacked him.
Taylor Garrett said he was hit in the left eye and suffered scrapes on his body before the attacker ran away.
The Daily Caller was shown pictures of the attack by Taylor Garrett, which reportedly show his bloody ear and t-shirt.
Taylor Garrett claimed he’s a victim of Democratic ideals.
The reality star told the Daily Caller: “The Democrats want me to live on their plantation as their slave, because I’m a gay person. And I refuse to do that.“
Taylor Garrett said it’s not the first time he’s been targeted since news of his lunch with Ann Coulter was in Los Angeles for the show.
In October, shortly after the Ann Coulter cameo was announced, Taylor Garrett told the Huffington Post that someone had written a threatening note on a rock that was thrown through his apartment window.
But critics have claimed that Taylor Garrett staged the incident in an attempt to collect media attention.
Taylor Garrett told the Daily Caller:
“I would’ve thought people would have been a little more tolerant considering that our community advocates for tolerance, but it has been nothing but mean spirited attacks, especially after the Ann Coulter scene.”
The reality star said he did the show to prove the point that “just because you don’t support gay marriage doesn’t make you a bigot, doesn’t mean you hate gay people.
“It just means you disagree on gay issues.”
