Which Kennedy, you’re wondering? The young guy in question is Conor Kennedy, the grandson of late Robert Kennedy (the brother of the late president Kennedy). Young Conor is also known as the former boyfriend of Taylor Swift; this time, he went to a bar with some friends, and other guy started making homophobic comments about his friend.
The whole thing took place at Bootsy Bellows nightclub in Aspen, Colorado. Conor wasvarrested and charged with disorderly conduct, and his father Robert F. Kennedy told the Aspen Times that he’s “proud of his son”.
“Conor has always reacted against bullying. I’m happy he stood up for his friend. I’m very sorry it turned into a police incident, [Conor’s] not liking the attention“, said his father.
Kennedy representative later stated: “Multiple witnesses to the incident have reported that two men assaulted Conor Kennedy after he rebuked them for directing a homophobic slur and threats to his close friend. They also report that Mr. Kennedy was cooperative, compliant and respectful toward the police from the moment they arrived on the scene. Mr. Kennedy looks forward to a full airing of the incident.”
