    I might add that at least one of his attackers may be gay. It's happened before.

    I don't know exactly what happened other than what he told me I guess he passed away but I hope that whatever these people did gets in trouble for that. It doesn't matter if you're black white orange pink whatever. And if he was gay that still doesn't make it right. I don't agree with the lifestyle but he's still a person and people that are gay or still people. We should love and accept them but I don't accept their lifestyle that's all. But I'm going off the first comment as well I don't know if he was gay or not I don't even know what he did
