Transgender Inside Edition reporter Zoey Tur tripled down Tuesday on threats he made against Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro during a Dr. Drew-hosted panel on HLN last week, when the reporter said he would send Shapiro “home in an ambulance.”
Shapiro joined a panel on HLN’s Dr. Drew on Call on Thursday, where the panel discussed whether Bruce Jenner deserved to be awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs last week.
When Shapiro pointed out that anyone with biologically male cells and male appendages is indeed a male, a visibly angered Tur placed a hand on Shapiro’s neck and warned, “You better cut that out now, or you’ll go home in an ambulance.”
After the taping, Shapiro alleged that Tur further threatened him, saying, “I’ll see you in the parking lot.”
Tur doubled down on the threat the next day by saying he would like to “curb stomp” Shapiro.
In a radio interview with KFI AM 640’s Bill Carroll on Tuesday, Tur tripled down on the threats, saying that he had, in fact, threatened Shapiro on the panel.
“Was it forceful? I don’t know, that’s relative…” Tur said.
When Carroll asked whether Tur intended to threaten Shapiro, the reporter hesitated before answering in the affirmative.
“Were you threatening him?” Carroll asked Tur point-blank.
“No. Well, maybe I was. Yeah, probably,” Tur responded. “I had had enough… He’s a wimp, he’s a wimp… He almost got spanked, what do you expect?”
Tur also leveled anti-Semitic insults at Shapiro during the interview with Carroll, saying Shapiro “comes from a very misogynistic cult anyway, where women are treated differently, they’re not allowed to touch men.”
“So maybe that’s the battery,” Tur suggested. “Maybe a woman touched him, and put her hand on his shoulder or the back of his neck, and that’s prescribed in the ultra-Orthodox religion, maybe that’s the battery he’s talking about.”
Jewish law does not prohibit a man from touching another man.
“I never invoked my religion in discussion about transgenderism, given that it is irrelevant: biology is the only relevant factor here,” Shapiro said. “Attacks on my religion by Tur once again show that for this gentleman, like the rest of the left, tolerance is merely a buzzword to be discarded for the sake of convenience.”
Shapiro filed a police report with the Los Angeles Police Department alleging battery against Tur on Sunday morning.
