The 73-year-old former television actor Stig Elling got something of a shock, when he Wednesday was out for a stroll with her husband, Steen Andersen, in copenhagen, where the couple lives.
Suddenly he got a spytklat in the head. He tells this in a posting on the Facebook:
today Was exposed to a very unpleasant experience.
A person I do not know, spat at me, and said silly words.
I thought exactly, that this is inexcusable in these times, where we must take care of each other.
Therefore this posting. Beware of each other in this time, in which the infection increases.
Good weekend to you all, and take care of each other,’ he writes.
For Extra Magazine elaborates Elling:
– We're just quietly walking on the road at Howitzvej, when a man – probably in the 50’s – suddenly spits me in the face with the words ’what you deserve’. I have never experienced anything similar. Both Steen and I was so shook, that we don't have in detail noticed the man, but immediately I will say that there was talk about a dane.
Stig Elling suffers from Parkinson's disease and are thus extra exposed in these coronatider. Therefore, it worries him extra attack not just verbally.
I thought about spytklatten mon was an additional manifestation of the man's contempt for me, he says, and continues:
– I was considering to report the incident to the police, what do I get out of it, when we don't have a usable picture? So instead I went to the keys and wrote about it on Facebook. Right now, we are in a situation where we must take care of each other and be positive, but unfortunately, there are idiots on the streets. Fortunately, most of the fellows, the staff is friendly and nice, so now we try to put it behind us, although it certainly was a shock.
Elling has a presumption that the episode due to his sexuality, but dare not say it, with hundred percent security.
It might well also be that once you had sold the man a raise, he was not satisfied with?
– Perhaps, yes. But I think it unfortunately not.
he is right in his assumption, this is the second time in a matter of days, as well as homosexual couples in denmark have been subjected to abuse because of their sexual orientation.
Thus saw the tv doctor Charlotte Bøvings girlfriend and future wife, Christina Jørgensen, last Sunday, to a male kirkegænger assigned to her battle with a hymn-book, as the pair were to worship in Varde. The episode under investigation now by the police.
