Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro has filed assault charges against transgender reporter Zoey Tur after Tur put her hand on his neck during a contentious exchange on the Dr Drew show , later calling him “a little man, a little boy.”
During a panel discussion over Caitlyn Jenner receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY’s, Shapiro referred to transgender men and women as “mentally ill,” refused to use the proper pronouns when referring to them, and baited Tur by calling her “sir.”
“What are your genetics, sir?” Shapiro asked Tur who put her hand on his neck and warned him, “You cut that out now, or you’ll go home in an ambulance.”
Later during the panel discussion, Tur dismissed, Shapiro telling him, “You’re consumed with hatred. You’re a little man, a little boy.”
According to a report at Breitbart.com, Shapiro filed the report Sunday morning alleging he was assaulted and that he filed the report to teach “the left” a lesson.
“Just because the left has designated someone a member of the victim class does not mean that that person gets to infringe the rights of others,” Shapiro said in regard to his filing of the report. “Until the left learns that, their aggression will not stop.”
Shapiro said he spoke with an LAPD detective and that he would be pursuing charges regarding alleged criminal threats.
