    why? because racists and homophobes don’t exist? are the police in on it too? What about this makes it so hard to believe?

    The attackers knew his comings and goings?
    A Subway open at 2am?
    Wearing ski masks, but was able to determine that they were white?
    There was a snowstorm with single digit temps last night in Chicago.

    How many times do we have to be fooled by a hoax before people start questioning more before they start a “revenge posse”?
    The countdown timer has already started before people start attacking straight, white Trump supporters in a deranged attempt to even the score.
    This is not real, folks. Stop being social media sheep.

    1. as if it is difficult to stalk people these days
    2. plenty of Subways are open 24/7, a quick google search will tell you that
    3. A ski mask does not cover the entire area around the eyes nor the mouth so yes you can still identify the skin color.
    4. I fail to see the correlation here

    He is one low key celebrity, dont judge him according to your standards.

    Anytime a POC or an immigrant does something wrong: “They’re all bad. Get them all out. Build the wall.”

    Anytime a white Trump supporter does something wrong:
    “It’s just a hoax. False flag.”

    In the minds of you Trumpkins, no Trump supporter could possibly be racist. Was Heather Hyer’s death a hoax too? The KKK and Storefront endorsed Trump for president. David Duke endorsed Trump for president. He attracts bigots. Stop making excuses. Start working with us POC to make this country a better place. I know you’ll respond to my comment with hostility, so don’t bother- I won’t be reading it. I’ll pray for you. I’ll pray one day you stop defending white supremacists.

    People, especially celebs, have to stop posting wherever they are at a precise given moment. They should be able to but they can’t because of sick attackers who feel justified due to the current division of society. Post where you’ve been instead of where you are.
