A 22-year-old transgender woman was pulled out of a McDonald’s bathroom in Baltimore, Maryland and viciously beaten by two customers. She was punched, knocked to the ground, dragged across the floor by her hair, and kicked in the face until she appeared to experience a seizure.
Instead of coming to this woman’s assistance, one McDonald’s employee filmed the assault while others can be heard cheering the assailants on as they attack the victim. After the brutal incident, the video was posted to the Internet, where an employee bragged that the assault was OK because the victim “was a man dressed like a woman.”
There is a petition being circulated to demand that the employees on duty at McDonald’s be held responsible.
Go to CHANGE.ORG to sign. You can view the video there as well. I will not post it here.
Transgender people are treated shamefully in this country.
