    Legally I think this accomplished nothing. The word faggot wasn't heard in the recording, and I didn't hear the guy admit to having said it. What you do see is potential harassment by following the guy. The gay even says at the end "I won't bother you anymore" which can be interpreted to be an admission that he WAS in fact bothering him in public.

    It might possibly make the homophobe think twice about using the faggot word again. Or it could give him grounds for suing due to the publication on YouTube. Because there's no evidence here that a hateful slur was ever used, just one guy's word against another.

    at 0:24 after the man recording asked did you say that the man being followed says yes I did. So he admits to calling him a F@ggot

    This was stupid.

    The guy who called him a faggot, looked and sounded gay himself.

    And besides, the guy who was called a faggot certainly was not accomplishing anything by following him and recording him.

    You just dont know what people are thinking. That guy could have potentially pulled out a knife or gun and killed "the faggot"...

    I disagree, I think if the video went viral it will make someone think twice before they say a hate word at someone.

    This is what the man's partner wrote on his blog:

    "This afternoon, my partner Turtle walked out of our apartment to grab a bite. Before he even left our block, a man called him “faggot” as he passed. Rather than let the guy get away with it, Turtle decided to confront this man about his hateful behavior. And he filmed it.

    Notice how well Turtle handles himself in this video. No need to fight hate with hate; calling him “slick hair” is as hateful as Turtle gets (which is hilarious and awesome). He lets that ignorant clown have it with poise and decency. Not surprising, considering Turtle is the absolute best guy around and I couldn’t be prouder of him.

    Our neighbors saw this altercation, and told Turtle that this man has been harassing their thirteen year-old son for years, sometimes even calling him “faggot” while the kid was in recess at school with his peers. They know who he is and where he lives. They’ve been too scared for the kid’s safety to do anything about it. But it’s going to end today.

    Turtle called the cops and is going to file a complaint tomorrow morning. I don’t know what’s going to happen yet, but hopefully this jerk will learn that we’re not going to put up with this crap in our neighborhood anymore.

    On the bright side, this charmer is already in talks with DC Comics to illustrate Orson Scott Card’s Superman story. It’ll be the first comic book drawn completely in douchey hair gel."

    please, if someone called me a faggot, I'de just say why thank you, you say that as if it's a bad thing; have a nice day, and move on.

    The guy with the camera seemed to be more of a perpetrator.; he should learn not to be so precious; he would not survive here at RJ, now would he; or maybe he would fit in very well with the liberal hens.
