Homophobe jerk: I'm not sorry

Matthew Francis, the Staten Island gay basher who attacked a man at the Stonewall Inn, insists that he doesn't hate gay people, and that he was just breaking up a fight when he had Ben Carver pinned down and pummeled. Right...

"I'm not going to say sorry, because I don't know what I should be sorry for," Francis told the Daily News. "I don't hate gay people."

To bolster his defense, Francis is using the 'I have a gay friend' tact, in this case it's his sister Deanna Francis, a bartender at the Black Dog Grill on Forest Avenue.

"My sister's a full-blown lesbian," he said.

The attack happened at the Stonewall Inn, a bar synonymous with the gay rights movement.

Carver, who has stitches above his bruised right eye, said that Francis beat him after confronting him in the bathroom at the bar and asked him if he was gay. Francis' friend, Christopher Orlando, held Carver down while he was beaten.

"It's been a difficult time for me and I'm looking forward to it being over," Carver told the News.

Francis is in jail at the Tombs, awaiting for someone to pay his $10,000 bail. Maybe his sister can throw a benefit at Black Dog.


  1. "my sister's a full blown lesbian" -Nice.

  2. I hope a big burly man initiates him into gay sex while he's locked up!

  3. I had heard about him having a lesbian sister. My question then would be, "How did the fight start in the first place?" What's a 17 and 21 year old from Staten Island doing going into a historic gay bar in the West Village? The story is pretty sad, on the heels of recent gay suicides and other Staten Island jokes in the media.
