Chicago Actor Attacked By "MAGA!"-Yelling Racists?

Seriously messed-up if true...
These stories about racist attacks by people who go out of their way to identify themselves as Trump-supporters...they just never seem to turn out to be true. If this one is, the dudes should get the book thrown at them. But, to be honest, I'm skeptical. It doesn't strike anyone else as a bit implausible that a couple of guys are walking around with a rope, and they know who this actor is? I could probably get sent to the gulag for saying this, but, to be honest about it, I wouldn't bet any money on this being true.
   It still strikes me as extremely odd that we now have to bend over backwards to make it absolutely perfectly clear that racism is bad, and being against homosexuals is bad, and attacking innocent people is bad, and attacking them for their race and sexual preferences is bad. To be clear: all bad. Very, very bad. If this is, in fact, true, the perpetrators suck and ought to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. (Question: is any amount of saying such things sufficient to make it permissible to express skepticism about such a report? If not, why not?)

UPDATE: Yeah, itsa hoax. They're just afraid to say so yet.

UPDATER: Totally a hoax. Hoxier than the Covington kids.
