Last week in Aspen, Colorado, Conor Kennedy, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, was arrested charged with disorderly conduct.
A bar fight broke out at the Bootsy Bellows nightclub and Kennedy was seen punching a man. Witnesses have stated that a friend of Kennedy’s was called a homophobic slur by a group of men and the men refused to apologize. Kennedy’s lawyer stated “Multiple witnesses to the incident have reported that two men assaulted Kennedy after he rebuked them for directing a homophobic slur and threats to his close friend.”
Robert Kennedy Jr., Conor’s father, stated “Conor has always reacted against bullying. I’m happy he stood up for his friend.”
Could politics be in Kennedy’s future? Fingers crossed.Tags: Aspen, Bootsy Bellows, Bullying, CO, Colorado, Conor Kennedy, homophobic, Robert Kennedy Jr., slur
