Deplorable Knicks Fans Beat Up Gay Guys During Playoff Loss

New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony grimaces as he leaves the court after injuring himself when falling at midcourt during the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland March 4, 2013.

A young Brooklyn couple was walking arm-in-arm near Madison Square Garden on Sunday, at the end of the Knicks’ game one loss to the Pacers, when a group of men proliferated every horrible stereotype about drunk and ornery sports bros: “A group of Knicks fans were upset about the game and they just decided to ‘fag bash’ the two of us. They broke my nose and his wrist, and broke several hundreds of dollars worth of personal property,” victim Kevin Porto, a clothing designer, wrote on Facebook. “They called us faggots,” he told DNAinfo. “They made fun of my jeans — I made the jeans myself, for that day.” Police are investigating the attack as a possible hate crime and are looking for a suspect last seen wearing a Carmelo Anthony jersey.
