What is most disturbing about this video of a trans women being attacked is the amount of men that didn’t lift a finger to help, but egged on the situation with laughter and a playful banter that would make anyone with a conscience, sick to their stomach. – AB

On Monday, hundreds of people rallied in front of the McDonald’s restaurant in Maryland where a transgender woman was viciously beaten by two teenage girls.

The victim, 23-year-old Chrissy Polis did not attend the rally but members of her family showed up in support, including her mother, Renee Carr.
“The turnout tonight is wonderful, I’m so happy,” Carr said. “I didn’t think that McDonald’s was a dangerous place, all she wanted to do was eat and use the bathroom.”

Last week Polis was attacked outside of the restroom in the restaurant. A worker recorded the beating which shows Polis trying to defend herself. The video was posted online and quickly went viral.

A female customer, 55-year-old Vicki Thoms, tried to intervene but was struck in the face by one of the attackers.
