Three male-to-female (MtF) transgenders escaped with their lives after a mob of 200 men attacked them with bottles and forced them to strip naked.

The incident occurred on Saturday, May 1, at Sunset Bar in Cotonou, Benin, a country in West Africa. The violence was captured on cell phone video and uploaded to social media.

The video was shared on Twitter by NGO and LGBT+ advocacy group Hirondelle Club Benin to spread awareness about violence against transgenders.

The video shows three MtF trans being harassed by a crowd of 200 men. The men force them to take off their clothes while they are being slapped and pelted with objects.

One of the victims told The Observers that the attack was planned.

"My man knew I was transgender and asked me to invite my transgender friends. When we arrived, he asked me to go outside.

Once we managed to get outside to help our friend, they began attacking the three of us. There were about 200 men there, and they forced us to strip naked while they laughed and filmed up. It was humiliating."

The victims were able to find shelter within Hirondelle Club Benin. But they said the "whole nation" – including "our families and bosses" – viewed the video of the attack after it went viral on social media.

"We'll never be able to find a job again," one of the victims said. "Everyone here is against us. Even young children in the street have been [pointing] fingers at us."

The video caption reads:

"We have just denounced an umpteenth aggression against people LGBTQi in Benin a few days before the celebration of May 17.We condemn these acts with the last rigor. We will come back for more details."

No arrests have been made.

The mother of the 6-year-old girl who was paddled by a school principal is under investigation after police interrogated her kids.

The family's attorney, Brent Probinsky, tells TMZ, the little girl and 2 of her siblings -- plus a cousin who lives in the home -- were pulled out of class Tuesday by officials with the Florida Dept. of Family and Children Services (DFACS).

Probinsky tells TMZ the unidentified mother is under investigation for reports of child neglect at home.

This comes as the mother filed a lawsuit against the School District for the paddling incident.

Melissa Carter, principal of Central Elementary School in Clewiston, is accused of paddling the child for damaging a school computer.

According to TMZ, the children were asked if their mother is abusive in the home, to which the children said no. Probinsky says the investigators then told him they wanted to follow up with the mother to ask why she didn't step in and intervene during her daughter's paddling.

Apparently, investigators were acting on a tip about the mom allegedly being neglectful at home. TMZ claims "there doesn't appear to be any evidence of that."

Probinsky says it's an outrage that law enforcement is investigating the mom, when the real culprit's on camera in the paddling video.

As Probinsky previously explained -- there's a number of reasons the mom didn't step in ... for one, she's undocumented and was afraid of repercussions.

Probinsky claims the the mother didn't know what was happening when she recorded the paddling due to a language barrier. However, Carter and the school clerk are both fluent in Spanish.

The school district is also investigating the paddling incident. Corporal punishment is not allowed in the school district.

A Latina mother who recorded her daughter being paddled by an elementary school principal has filed a lawsuit against the school district.

Melissa Carter, principal of Central Elementary School in Clewiston, is accused of paddling a 6-year-old female student for damaging a school computer.

The unidentified mother was called to the school on April 13 to pay a $50 fee for the damaged computer. She said when she arrived to pay the fee, she saw her daughter, the principal, and a school clerk waiting inside the principal's office.

She said Carter and the clerk escorted her and her daughter to the child's classroom where Carter beat the minor child with a wooden paddle in front of other students.

The mother began secretly recording as Carter and the clerk bent her daughter over a table.

The mother said she didn't understand what was happening due to a language barrier. She said she recorded the paddling because she didn't think anyone would believe the cruelty taking place at the school.

"The hatred with which she hit my daughter, I mean it was a hatred that, really I've never hit my daughter like she hit her," the mother told WINK News in Spanish. The mom said she never hits her daughter at home.

She said her child suffers from psychological and emotional disorders, as well as physical bruises from the paddling.

The video sparked outrage after it was posted on social media. many were shocked that this archaic, outdated mode of punishment was still occurring in public schools.

The mother pressed assault charges, and the Clewiston Police Department has turned the investigation over to the State Attorney's Office.

School district officials said Carter's actions went directly against the anti-corporal punishment policy in the school district.

Paddling and other forms of cruel corporal punishment have been outlawed in most civilized jurisdictions. But there are still pockets of resistance in the Deep South.

Earlier this week, Twitter users criticized Tariq Nasheed for posting a viral video of a Holiday Inn employee being berated by a customer.

The employee, Caleb. C., is seen beating himself up after a customer berated him over a reservation error.
 

Caleb later wrote a Reddit post explaining that he suffered from bipolar disorder and schizoaffective disorder. He also revealed he was in a same-sex relationship.

Studies over the years have revealed a strong link between homosexuality and autism.

One recent online survey of 309 individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) reveled nearly 70% of the respondents were LGBT+.

Research suggests that individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) report increased homosexuality, bisexuality, and asexuality, but decreased heterosexuality.

Caleb didn't include autism syndrome as one of his mental disorders. However, most homosexuals with high functioning autism are never diagnosed.

Why is the link between homosexuality and autism important?

The link is important because Caleb should have been at home collecting disability payments rather than working the night shift where he is subjected to abuse.

In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association (ASA) voted to remove homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses. As a result, people like Caleb, who are autistic and suffer from other mental disorders, can't apply for disability payments.

Most people who viewed the video of Caleb's meltdown agree that he shouldn't have been working a front desk job -- even though he was working the overnight shift.

He beat himself up -- first with his fist and then with a computer monitor -- because lacked the coping skills to withstand the harassment from the customer.

A GofundMe account created for Caleb has raised $130,000. But it's clear that he can't work a public-facing job again.

If you are LGBT+ and have ever wondered "Am I autistic?", the following signs and symptoms may apply to you:

1. Socially awkward

2. Hyper sensitive to bright lights or certain noises (loud music)

3. Depression or anxiety

4. Drawn to repetitive actions or behaviors

5. Easily upset when told to stop a task in the middle

6. Can't handle even a minor change

7. Prefer to be alone

8. Common phrases confuse you ("No man is an island")

9. You don't recognize sarcasm

10. You repeat words or phrases during conversations

11. You are intensely focused on specific interests (gaming, social media, etc.)

12. Have an exceptional talent (art, music, writing, etc.)

13. Have a tough time interacting with others

14. You're lactose intolerant

15. You sometimes stare without realizing it (someone tells you you're staring)

Holiday Inn's parent company has launched an investigation into a "shocking" viral video that shows a Black customer berating an autistic employee.

IHG hotels, which owns Holiday Inn, was disturbed by the video that was posted to Twitter.com on Sunday by Tariq Nasheed under the hashtag "Mayonnaise Meltdown."

"Why did you get mad and hit the compruter [sic]," the customer asked repeatedly.

The employee is seen punching himself in the face and hitting his head on a computer monitor after the customer pressed him about a reservation error.

"You've ruined my night, you've ruined my life, man," the employee said before walking away in tears.

The customer was later ejected from the hotel for harassing other employees.
 

IHG hotels called the treatment of the employee "unacceptable" and vowed to investigate the incident.

"We were shocked and saddened to see the video and the clearly unacceptable treatment of a longtime hotel colleague," Jacob Hawkins, a spokesperson for IHG Hotels & Resorts told Newsweek.

Hawkins said the Holiday Inn location where the incident took place is an independently owned franchise.

Still, he said every employee representing IHG Hotels & resorts "deserves to be treated with respect and dignity."

A Reddit user who identified himself as the employee said he quit his job and drank heavily after the video went viral.

He added that he suffers from bipolar disorder and schizo-affective disorders.

Empathetic Internet users donated over $123,000 to a GoFundMe created by a YouTube vlogger who identified the former employee as "Caleb C."

Twitter users were quick to criticize Tariq and the customer who filmed the video. A group of women attacked Tariq who referred to them as "non-FBA bed wenches."

A Holiday Inn employee who was harassed and filmed by a rude customer over a reservation error has received overwhelming support online.

Caleb is the autistic man seen having a mental breakdown in a viral video recorded by an irate Holiday Inn customer.

The rude customer was ejected from the hotel for harassing other hotel employees.

The video went viral after Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed posted it on his Twitter page, and accused Caleb of being "racist".

A YouTube vlogger raised over $41,000 for Caleb on GoFundMe.

The vlogger who created the GoFundMe account criticized Tariq and referred to him as a repressed homosexual because of his rude responses to Black women on the app Clubhouse.

The women dragged Tariq and told him he was "cancelled" for his insensitive treatment of a man who was clearly in distress.

After quitting his job, Caleb took to Reddit.com to explain what happened.

"While I've now quit this position (my management supported me, and told me I'm welcome back. The guest was ejected from the hotel for escalating issues with staff and the owners.)

I do have mental disorders. I suffer from BPD and schizo-affective disorders. What this fine, 5’5” bald gentleman behind the camera DIDN’T record was the fact that he called me a F**GOT for an associates mistake.

He was aggressive, and fishing for a reaction. He sure got it; and I’m glad this was a wake up call for me to stop slaving away for corporations who do not care about you at all, or the guests."

Watch below as women attack Tariq on Clubhouse app.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed (pictured right) shared a video of a Holiday Inn worker having a meltdown after a Black hotel guest harassed him about a reservation error.

Tariq described the Holiday Inn employee as "racist" because he began punching himself and hit his head on a computer monitor.

The employee removed himself from an obviously stressful situation by walking away. "You destroyed my life!" he told the customer before leaving.

The angry guest appeared to calm down and seemed to understand that the employee was emotionally overwhelmed. But he posted the video online anyway and it went viral, garnering millions of views.

There was nothing racist about the exchange. In fact, the customer seems to be harassing the employee over a simple mistake.

A Reddit user who claimed to be the employee explained that he had too much to drink after going viral because his meltdown, caused by his schizo-affective disorder, was "documented by a rude customer at an establishment which I was employed."

The employee said he was driving drunk and he wondered "Why is this happening to me? Why can't people have basic human kindness and compassion for someone obviously not sound?"

Many of Tariq's followers assumed the employee was drunk at work when the incident occurred. However, the employee said he was drunk after the video went viral.

One of Tariq's followers threatened to come and see him when he travels to the United States.

Corporations such as Holiday Inn who hire people with mental illness should be commended. But such employees should be protected from rude customers.

Someone in management should have heard the commotion and approached the customer to offer their assistance. Another option is to avoid placing mentally ill people in vulnerable positions such as a front desk.

Question: Do you think companies ban recording videos of employees on the job site? Is recording video on private property a violation of employee rights?

DaBaby complained about the cost of the private jet while filming the Caucasian stewardess serving food and beverages to his crew.

"We gonna go and nip this in the bud," he said. "If we gon' pay all this for this flight you gon' comb your head... the least you could do."

Some of the DaBaby's fans were disappointed in his attitude toward a working woman.

One Twitter user wrote: "She's gonna comb her hair when his songs stop sounding the same."

A loyal reader sent this proposal video to Sandrarose.com without any context or explanation.

MSNBC provided more context. The Atlanta couple is William Hunn and Brittney Michelle Miller.

Last week, they went viral when he took her on a helicopter ride and surprised her with five different diamond ring options.

William proposed after telling Brittney he was happy she came back into his life.

Somehow, he managed to find a jewelry store in Atlanta to loan him five engagement rings on spec.
 

Britnney cried hot tears when she saw the ring choices.

Before William popped the question, he said, "I realize I can't live without you, and I have to spend the rest of this life with you."

Apparently they broke up and got back together before he proposed.

She captioned a photo:

"I SAID YES!!!! [ring emoji] He proposed with not just one.... but the FIVE rings I was torn between! I had options. @ichillwillfixit went above and beyond to make this day one that we'll never forget. William, you are truly a blessing. You're my best friend, fiancé, soon to be husband and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you... The Hunn's coming soon."

It's extremely difficult to find a heterosexual man who is single in Atlanta. Congratulations to the happy couple!
