Off-Duty Cop Called Activist & Model Sir Page A "Fa**** Ass N****"

An Atlanta officer is under investigation after being caught on camera calling a man a “fa**** ass n****.”

On January 26, actor and activist Sir Page, known professionally as Sir Maejor, was near the Five Points Station in Atlanta, Georgia.

Page, who's the President of the local chapter of Black Lives Matter and appeared on "American Horror Story: Coven," called the police to report two illegally parked cars blocking traffic.

While we don't know what happened between that and the moment recorded below, we can acknowledge that the situation escalated quickly.

At some point Page brought out his camera and decided to approach the two men who were illegally parked (who apparently were off-duty officers). Page asked one officer if he worked for APD (Atlanta Police Department).

Immediately, the man replied, “Get the f*** away from me.” Then while walking away he said, “fa**** ass n****.”

This caused a back and forth between the two before another officer arrived at the scene.

Gay Star News spoke to the Atlanta Police Department and learned that the man is in fact a police officer under their jurisdiction.

“The individual depicted in the video is an APD officer. The Office of Professional Standards has opened an investigation into his conduct.”

Page also talked to the New York Post and says the men probably assumed his sexuality because of his sparkly shoes.

“It was because of how I was dressed. I’ve never had an officer say anything like this to my face ever before. Who’s bold enough to say something like this to your face?”

“He’s obviously used to talking to people like that and people not doing anything about it. I wonder how he talks to gay folks and transgender people?”

A Man Was Shot Outside An Atlanta Gay Bar

This past Monday, witnesses say they saw a man standing around the Bulldogs bar, a black gay bar in Atlanta, Georgia.

A group of friends eventually interacted with this man, later identified as 47-year-old Elijah Payton, as he started to yell at them.

An anonymous witness spoke to WSB-TV Atlanta about the situation, “He started yelling obscenities, such as ‘Hey, which one is with who? I wanna have sex with one of you guys,” the witness told them, “He then screamed that he was homeless and that he wanted to know if one of us could give him some money.”

Payton then followed the group to the parking lot. One of the group members offered Payton $5 before Peyton lifted his shirt and pulled out a gun.

At that point, the majority of the group ran away with only two left behind. Payton then told the remaining two to undress, which caused one of the men to attempt to run. Payton then shot the runner twice in the back.

Later this Thursday, Atlanta police located and arrested Payton for not only this shooting but for another one that occurred last month. Payton reportedly shot a man in his thigh after refusing to give Peyton his cellphone charger and food.

While Payton awaits trail, both victims are alive and recovering.
