Elliot revealed that he was threatened with assault by a stranger while walking to a convenience store on the corner of Sunset and La Cinega in West Hollywood.

“I’m going to f—ing gay bash you, faggot,” the man threatened Elliot, who was able to get inside the store and receive safety from the employees. The man yelled from the other side of the door, “This is why I need a gun!”

Elliot told the LA Times, “Now when I’m in Los Angeles, I don’t feel comfortable like I used to going for walks.”

He also told the newspaper that while he may feel unsafe places, he recognizes that he has the privilege of being able to afford private security or stay in fancy hotel rooms.

“Doesn’t mean it’s not traumatic,” he said. “But I have resources that, in every instance that is difficult, protect and can shield me from these things.”
