Woman Who Attacked Trans New Yorker on Subway Refuses to Apologize: ‘That Person Offended Me’
Last week, we told you about a disgusting transphobic attack that occurred on a busy New York City subway train. Now, the cisgender woman seen in a viral video of the attack is speaking out and refusing to apologize for viciously attacking Pearl Love, the transgender woman whose only crime was riding in the same car as her attacker.
In an interview with New York’s PIX11, Sarah Eldridge says she does not believe she was fully in the wrong. When asked if she would apologize to Love, Eldridge replies, “Now is not the time.”
Via Gawker’s Rich Juzwiak:
“I meant what I said. That person offended me in a way,” Eldridge said of Love. “That person was, to me, explicit. To me, too much. To me, I couldn’t stand it. To me, this is not fair to me.”
When it was suggested to Eldridge that Love was merely existing and being herself, Eldridge told the camera, “I can’t deal with that. I guess I’m not ready.”
