Gay Bashers Busted

(antiMusic) Four young males aged 16 to 20 have been arrested for hate crime assault and hate crime harassment for allegedly attacking gay singer Kevin Aviance as he left a Manhattan's East Village gay bar late Saturday night.

Aviance best known for his No. 1 dance hits "Da Da Din" and "Alive" was beaten and kicked by the four youths as they yelled several gay epithets including "kill the f*ggot". "They kicked me in my back, they kicked in my knees. They just kept kicking," he said.

The 38 year old singer was released from the hospital on Monday after being treated for head trauma and other injuries. The four assailants are being held pending arraignment according to Reuters.
