Voyeur Bouncer Violence Outside West Hollywood Club Caught On Camera (NSFW)

Video of a man being punched by a bouncer near a famed West Hollywood nightclub made the social networking rounds this week. One of his captors appears to utter a homophobic slur at the victim, who told his captors he is gay.

The violent take-down and beating of an apparently inebriated man by at least one guy who appears to be a bouncer at Santa Monica Boulevard and North Edinburgh Avenue is reported to have happened Feb. 25.

The location, outside the Laurel Pet Hospital, is fairly barren, but it's across the street from the famed Voyeur nightclub, a spot frequented by celebrities. It's usually hounded by deputies who set up outside on big nights. Feb. 25 was a Saturday, indicating this was fallout from a Friday night out.

The video was tweeted by Weho Daily last night.

(WARNING: Foul Language)

The bald-headed bouncer guy and another man hold down the victim while one of them accuses him of instigating a fight. (Warning: Foul language).

"Look at my face man," the victim says, "-they f*cked me up."

One of two men holding him down says: "F*ck your face. I don't give a shit about your face."

Victim: "Trust me please I didn't start the shit. I was with my boyfriend. I'm a gay boy."

Face down on the ground, he tries to look up at his captors. One of them says:

"Yeah well your a f*ckin' [unintelligible] ... Stop f*ckin' struggling motherf*cker. "

At that point the victim receives what appear to be a pair of punches, one to his back and one to the back of his head, by the winner in black.

"Stop resisting," one of the men says. "Stay still motherf*cker."

Then one of the captors unleashes this: "Stop f*ckin' moving you c*cksucker."

Just then a security guard with a badge walks up, and one of the captors says, "Hey can we get some cuffs please."

"Stay where you are motherf*cker," the victim is told. "Shut up."

We'll put a call into Voyeur this morning to see if any of these heroes belong to them.

No one has the right to assault you. Police can do what it takes to control you if you disobey their lawful orders. But that applies to police.

Being a bouncer can be a tough gig, as we've surely witnessed. And, in many cases, they do a great job of keeping idiots from ruining a good time. But some of them get tough-guy complexes and need to spend some time in handcuffs themselves.

This seems to be one of those cases. What do you think?
