A Self-Proclaimed Journalist, Video Producer Identified As One Of The Victims Of The Manchester Terrorist Attack That Killed 22 Concert Goers!
(LONDON) — A boyfriend, a self-proclaimed journalist, and producer of social media videos has been identified as a victim of the Manchester Terrorist attack that claimed the lives of 22 concertgoers and injuring 59.
Martyn Hett, 29, has been identified by Manchester police as the one of the victim in one of England’s most deadly terrorists attacks in history. His partner has taken to social media paying tribute.
“We got the news last night that our wonderful, iconic and beautiful Martyn didn’t survive,” Hett’s partner, Russell Hayward, said. “I’m in a really bad way so please forgive if I don’t reply.
Hett, who had appeared on TV shows ‘Come Dine With Me’ and ‘Tattoo Fixers,’ was a digital public relations manager Rumpus PR. Hett was headed to the United States after the concert for a two-month vacation.
Russell called his partner his “best friend in the whole world.”
In a newly leaked YouTube post, a male voice alleged to belong to F Bar owner is heard ‘bashing’ another LGBT club and owner. Owner claims tape was ‘re-done’ to look bad!
HOUSTON – A new leaked recording has hit YouTube. The recording appears to be the voice of a Houston LGBT bar owner ‘bashing’ another club and it’s owner in the LGBT neighborhood of Montrose.
The YouTube video posted on May 3, 2017 identifies the male voice as ‘Erv Palchick.’ The video post visibly shows a of photo of ‘Irwin Palchick.’ The voice speaks about ‘making an anonymous complaint.’ Palchick has not denied it being him, but claims it was “re-done” to make him appear in a negative light.
“I asked my license guy, cause I was going to call about something,” the voice on the post can be heard saying. “He told me it’s totally confidential. You ask them to remain anonymous.”
Back in March details emerged relating to an alleged anonymous complaint filed with the Texas Bingo Commission against Hamburger Mary’s. The restaurant, a national LGBT franchise built around Drag Queens and ‘Charity Bingo.’ The complaint was based on Hamburger Mary’s operating an unlicensed charity bingo night.
“I have a meeting at the lottery tomorrow. You know… Bayou City is a bar…, Hamburger Mary’s is a franchise. Obviously two different businesses. That would mean two different licenses…” Another voice appears in the audio twice throughout. It appears to be another male voice.
Texas Charity Bingo, a division of the Texas Lottery Commission, ultimately found Hamburger Mary’s in violation of Texas bingo laws.
The Commission demanded the weekly charity event to cease. The end of the event meant local LGBT non-profits in Montrose would not benefit.
“And when your dumb enough to run ads about it,” the voice on the recording says. “Wait, wait and see what TABC does because um I’m not going to let it end.” There is no indication on the post as to what the man’s voice is speaking of.
“Oh yeah, when we went to the meetings with Charles Armstrong about the Pride, he was the only one that talked. I got this. I got this connection. He’s a pansy! He’s a big show off, he was at all those meetings. Me Me Me Me Me, I I I I I I, I’ve been with Disney, I owned Richs.”
“He did not own Richs, they threw him out of Richs.” As the recording ends the male voice appears to be cut off. “I think you should. I’m gonna be there tomorrow. I will go to see what’s going on.”
Today, Palchick ‘vented’ to Facebook regarding the recording. Claiming tape was ‘done behind his back,’ and ‘re-done to make him look bad.’ Palchick expresses ‘more important’ things in the community need to be done, like raising money for non-profits.’
Audio Alleged To Be A Houston LGBT Club Owner Making Racist Comments About African American Community Floods Social Media
(Updated at 09:16 P.M.)
(HOUSTON) — A racist digital audio recording alleged to be an owner of a Houston LGBT club has flooded social media this afternoon. The recording posted to YouTube Friday evening is only seven seconds long. It captures a voice alleged to belong to Irwin Palchick, a LGBT nightclub owner in Montrose.
News of the recording was first reported by AshtonPWoods.com, a civil rights news blog that centers focus on the #BlackLivesMatter movement in Houston, Texas. Woods is the co-founder and lead organizer for BLM’s Houston chapter.
“N****” You can hear the male voice say. The audio rambles before the voice returns, “I said N**** before he hit me in the face.” There are no other voices heard on the recording. There are no indications where the recording was made or how old or new it is.
No official word from F Bar, or it’s owner relating to the audio. Palchick did take to social media denying the audio is of him. “Absolutely not me,” Palchick commented. “I embrace all,” a second comment said.
The release of the YouTube recording has been met with mixed reaction in the community.
“Everyone knows there are certain things NO one should EVER say. Anger shouldn’t make you say something so deeply rooted in racism,” a person wrote on the article. “It says a lot about someone who’s first choice of words would be such a word. This word shouldn’t flow out of someone’s mouth with ease. Racism is a choice.”
Another viewpoint came in the form of support. “I’ve been known Irwin Palchick for 30 year’s plus. Racist would never be a word I could use to describe him,” one supporter on Facebook said.
This scandal is just the latest in a series for the club. Once the #1 LGBT nightclub destination in Houston, F Bar announced last week it would be canceling their Tuesday and Wednesday night drag show. An announcement that some in the LGBT community took as a sign of ‘hard times.’
(Update) Nightclub owner Irwin Palchick admits the voice on the recording is in fact his voice, “But it was after I had been assaulted on or around Easter Sunday.” Palchick explains he was in his office with a small group of people, and the recording does not reflect the full conversation; was altered and taken out of context to make him appear racist.
