A cowardly attack with a taser gun on an American gay couple has been condemned by hip hop fans  – with even some self confessed homophobes condemning the attack

A hate crime against an American gay couple posted on a music website has been roundly condemned by hip hop fans in what may be another sign of a growing shift away from homophobia in the genre.

The video, posted to the World Star Hip Hop website on August 21 shows a mixed race gay couple standing at a convenience store service window when a man fires a taser gun into one of the man’s back and electrocutes him.
