'A-List' Star Assaulted Outside Dallas Bar for Controversial Conservative Views
By Adam Rathe
Some people must really hate A-List Dallas.
Taylor Garrett, one of the stars of the Logo show about Texas 'mocialites, claims he was beat up Friday night by a man he caught vandalizing his car outside of a Dallas birthday party.
“I was at a party and one of my friends arrived and I had a present for him, so I went back to my car to get the present,” he tells the Daily Caller. “When I walked out to my car, I saw someone squatting next to my car.”
Garrett confronted the vandal and for his troubles received a punch in the face. The reality TV personality fell to the ground and landed in a pile of broken glass.
The ruffian is said to have scratched “Fuck Coulter” into the paint on Garrett’s car, a reference to Ann Coulter, the conservative talking head with whom Garrett aligns himself.
Garrett chalks the incident up to problems with his conservative politics more than his very public gay persona.
“The Democrats want me to live on their plantation as their slave, because I’m a gay person,” he says. “And I refuse to do that.”
This wouldn’t be the first time that Garrett was the target of violent vandalism.
In October, a rock was thrown through his apartment window along with a message deriding his conservative views.
At the time, he told the Huffington Post, "I think a lot of people in the community don't want me to have a part of it because a lot of them don't agree with my political position. This goes to show you that the gay community advocates for diversity and is against bullying, but in our own community we discriminate based upon if you're a Democrat or a Republican or if you don't necessarily fit within the mold of the political views of the gay community."
