How to make it worse

In my last post, I documented that Victoria Brownworth – famous journalist for the Philadelphia Gay News (PGN), the Advocate and more – is claiming that I’m threatening to rape her and harm her family. Today I learned that apparently I’m also, according to Brownworth, threatening to kill her and that her newspaper, PGN, is filing a libel suit against me:


I called PGN editor, Jen Colletta and she informed me that Brownwoth lied… As in, she made it up. As in, it’s a fiction that Brownworth concocted.

PGN is NOT filing any suit against me. Brownworth’s claim is a lie.

Her behavior isn’t professional and if I’m able to find that she filed a false police report, it’ll be criminal.

UPDATE: Brownworth caught lying about filing a police report
