An “award-winning” journalist—in this case, a slug given a medal—is crapping out a book claiming Matthew Shepard was a meth addict killed by his bisexual lover.
It’s an evil attempt to filthy the reputation of a young man who was murdered by homophobes. It will hurt his family and friends immeasurably. Why? Why go there? Why do this? What purpose does it serve? Bastard.
The Matthew Shepard Foundation told The Huffington Post, “We do not respond to innuendo, rumour or conspiracy theories. Instead we recommit ourselves to honouring Matthew’s memory, and refuse to be intimidated by those who seek to tarnish it.”
