Bridgewater: Journalist apparently attacked for supporting gay marriage

Share Button

Bridgewater State University police are looking for a woman who apparently punched a gay student journalist over an editorial supporting same-sex marriage.

In her piece for this week’s edition of the school paper, The Comment, author Destinie Mogg-Barkalow called people in favor of an overturned gay marriage ban in California, intolerant and bigoted.

She says she was walking in a campus parking lot when she was approached by a man and woman who appeared to be students.

Mogg-Barkalow says they asked if she had written the editorial, and when she replied “yes”, she says the woman gave her a black eye.

So far there have been no arrests and the incident is being treated as a possible hate crime.
