Andrew Caldwell, the unfortunate man who gained instant fame last year when a video of him giving some testimony at a Pentacostal church convention screaming “I don’t like mens no more” went viral, hasn’t had the greatest year. The latest incident in the news involving him, which happened at a St. Louis area frozen yogurt shop, suggests that he may be kind of an asshole in addition to being a victim of repeated abuse.
The incident was caught on an overhead surveillance camera, but there are two versions of what incited the assault-by-fro-yo.
Caldwell, who back in February posted pictures of himself with a bloody face claiming that he’d been the victim of a hate crime, claims that the female frozen yogurt shop worker called him a faggot before angrily throwing his frozen yogurt at his face.
The frozen yogurt shop employee told St. Louis’s Fox 2 that that is all bullshit, and that she, in fact, is gay. Her version, as you can hear in the video below: “I didn’t know who he was. That was the first time that I saw him. He showed me his driver’s license, and said, ‘I need a fucking discount you bitch.'” Andrew threw his money at her, and apparently said, “Yeah that’s right, pick that up like the bitch you are. Like the dog you are.” She says that when she threw the yogurt.
It’s unclear why he was trying to get a discount and showed her his license maybe because he thinks he’s actually famous?! but I’m inclined to believe the lesbian. Also, he’s clearly a liar. And yes, he had some Reese’s and some Kit-Kats up on there.
The hilarious and tragic part about the original viral video, apart from the way Caldwell screams, “I am delivered,” is of course the fact that Caldwell is so obviously effeminate, he’s wearing a poofy yellow bowtie and matching pocket square, and the educated among us all know you can’t get delivered from homosexuality. And, as it happens, Caldwell came around and admitted as much just two months ago, in February, saying he still desired mens, had not been delivered, and added, “They think that they can preach the homosexuals away in the Church of God in Christ. And you can’t.” It sounds like he still is hoping to pray the gay away, though, and pray the effeminacy away too.
Maybe he should just swear off the fro-yo and move to L.A. to become an E! correspondent or something.
And here’s the weird “remix” that Caldwell himself attempted to profit from in the weeks after it went viral, prompting the mega-church that hosted the Church of God In Christ convocation he was attending to threaten to sue him.
