DALLAS, Texas – A man was taken away in handcuffs at a Dallas airport after a commotion at a gate.

On Oct. 23, Andrew Kennedy says he was waiting for a flight at Dallas/ Ft. Worth International Airport when he heard yelling nearby.

Kennedy immediately pulled out his phone and started filming.

In the video, a man can be seen yelling at another man, who is wearing a pink shirt.

The alleged suspect continues to scream at the victim, who he believes is gay.

Another passenger tries to step in and asks, “What are you upset about?”

“Queers is what I’m upset about!” he said. “This f****t right here.”

The alleged suspect then kicks and tries to punch the man before a group of Good Samaritans throw him to the ground.

They hold him until police arrive and take him away in handcuffs.

When asked why he decided to attack, the man says, “Because this is America. That’s why. The same reason you get to live, to breathe, to walk black.”

According to WFAA, the man was arrested but would not comment further on the incident.
