    I watched the entire video and still have no idea how the explosion has “impacted the LGBTQ community”. Shows how ridiculous this is and furthermore how terrible the reporting from this station was and frankly usually is.

    • Creating false narratives about minorities in distress is all that they do now. They only care about what brings in views. They don’t seem to care about actually reporting the news.

  4. Is this journalism or satire?

    Such a dumb piece of content…

  7. This is borderline insulting to all the lives lost in the explosion.

    • It’s past borderline because it is insulting and having a bandage on his baby finger is definitely not a severe injury, so sad this is what we’re being shown about the suffering this tragedy has caused and will continue to cause

  8. Are you serious? Sure you can’t blame the Patriarchy for the blast while you’re at it??

    Explosion happens!
    Here’s how this one specific group is affected. The rest don’t get coverage, because they’re not part of this specific group. The rest don’t even get a gofundme, because they’re not part of this specific group.
    P.S Maybe you should focus on the fact they live in a country where LGBT are imprisoned for their sexuality, that seems like a bigger issue for them.

  10. This is so disrespectful

  11. This is literally the worst “journalism” I have seen in a long long time.

    How did this “impact the LGBTQ community”… was the Beirut explosion a bigot?

  14. Why the frig does anyone care how it affects the LGBTQ community. How about, how has it simply affected the country

    • Because the difference is they don’t have support from family or programs in Lebanon because they are LGBT. Try and pay attention before you comment moron.

  15. “There were fake eyelashes and feathers flying everywhere!”

    Of course what really matters is how the LGPTQ community is doing. Like that matters and not all the other lives lost.

      we men we provoke all the badness in the world and then we blame other for it lol

  18. I would honestly think that headline was from The Onion if no one told me otherwise. wow.

  19. Honestly, I’ve seen high school presentations that are better than this.

  20. Every time a news story backfires, it’s immediately removed from the YouTube News recommendations to mute the public outrage.
