An arrest has been made in the beating of a 20-year-old gay man that was captured on video and uploaded to the internet.

Brandon White, left, was assaulted by 3 men shouting anti-gay slurs as he left a convenience store on McDaniels street on Atlanta's southwest side last Saturday.

The beating was captured on 2 cell phone cameras and uploaded to Worldstarhiphop.com where it went viral.

Channel 2 Action news and the Atlanta Journal reports that Christopher Cain, 18, (inset) was arrested at midnight on Saturday in DeKalb County and charged with aggravated assault and robbery. He is currently being held at the Fulton county jail without bond.

Police have identified the other two assailants seen beating White in the video, but their names have not been released. Police are offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.

Meanwhile, concerned citizens of the Pittsburgh community and gay rights advocates have joined together to protest the beating and to foster unity in both communities.

  • Daisy

    I saw the video on the news I don't ever go to WSHH for anything

  • EB

    WSHH needs to be shut down or be a porn site. They should not accept or show videos of people fighting. People are just staging fights just to be on WSHH. Its so sad. :(

  • I Run New York

    I agree EB a lot of people do these acts just so they can be on world star. They should just stick to being a porn site.

    Tragic. Young men throwing their futures away for 15 minutes of internet fame. Praying for healing in that community.

  • TiFan4Lyfe

    I think wshh is ignorant but when you think about it a lot of the people who submit and are in these ignorant videos get caught and thrown in jail....so I guess that's a good thing.Might just be a reason they haven't shut it down yet.

    :coffee:

    It's sad that there are people who look at the video and find it entertaining. I couldn't look at....it's too violent. I hope Brandon focuses on healing. His attackers will suffer dreadful consequences for their actions. So young and so stupid.

    True. They know they target audience is desensitized to violence.

  • KDub

    Naw Auntie. Violence sells/gets hits is my point. After sex...I think violence is number two on the list. Sad but true. If it wasn't nobody would sell a rap album, tv show, insert media type HERE ever again.

  • Ms. Everything

    :claps: I'm glad they got him and hopefully they'll get the other 2 soon as well. These kids growing up today have absolutely no kinda sense and it makes me sick. And I agree with all who said WSHH should be shut down. I've been to that site one time and never went back

    :offtopic: but not really, I think it should be against the law for Walmart to offer tax services with Rapid Refund, cash checks, and then cutback on all their prices at the same time. These folks are doing their taxes, cashing their checks and putting all that money straight back into the store. I went in there today to grab something and it was so many carts full of tvs, computers smdh... not to mention the carts full of frozen foods. One couple had a cart so full ish was falling on the floor and not one fruit or vegetable :cuss:

    Thanks @MsEverything. Sandra tried to sneak that in about target audience. Well who is the target audience that was targeted when @Daisy seen it on the NEWS? They are a media outlet as well and they know good and well that if you missed it and want to see it you can go to their website. Thus driving their hits with what? Violence. Sure they got or had it posted.

    Yall be good on this Sat.

    @ kdub sorry I was commenting on what Sandra posted after your comment :ashamed:

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ KDub: I doubt they showed the actual beat down video on the news. That video was too graphic to be shown on the news. :no:
