He Poured Boiling Hot Water On Them Cause They’re Gay

marquez-tolbert-hat-650well this story is an eye opener.
it’s also a graphic one as well.
you never know who is in disdain over your life.
they may smile in your face,
attend all your events,
but muthafuckas out here are crazy as fuck.
animals can be jackals secretly plotting against you.
well that is what marquez tolbert,
in the picture ^above,
and anthony gooden experienced in feburary.
a family friend burned them with boiling hot water because they are gay.
this is what projectq had to say via a vix-bi



Two young gay metro Atlanta men are recovering from serious burns after they were attacked by a disgruntled family friend who poured boiling water on them as they slept.

The attack caused second- and third-degree burns on the necks, backs and arms of Anthony Gooden, 23, and Marquez Tolbert, 21, and sent them to Grady Memorial Hospital. Tolbert was hospitalized for 10 days after the incident and Gooden was released on Friday, some five weeks after the Feb. 12 incident. 


“We woke up to boiling hot water,” Tolbert said. “I started screaming uncontrollably and I was pulled out of the house. We ran to the neighbors and called the police.”

“We were just burning. My body was just stinging. It was like a really, really severe kind of stinging. I could hardly think straight,” Tolbert added.

Tolbert said that he and Gooden left work at a nearby warehouse at about 7 a.m. on Feb. 12 and went to the Alexandria Landing apartment in College Park where Gooden lived with his mom. The two regularly spent time at the apartment and often slept there overnight during the nearly six weeks they dated. 

They were asleep on a mattress in the living room when Martin Luther Blackwell, 48, arrived. Blackwell was dating Gooden’s mom but didn’t live at the apartment. He spotted the two men asleep and attacked them, according to an incident report from the College Park Police Department. 


Blackwell allegedly told police that he couldn’t stand to see the two men sleeping together. 

“They was stuck together like two hot dogs, so I poured a little hot water on them and helped them out,” Blackwell told investigators. “They was stuck like two hot dogs. They’ll be alright, it was just a little hot water.”

Police arrested Blackwell on two counts of aggravated battery. He remains in the Fulton County Jail without bond. 

Tolbert said that prior to the attack, Blackwell seemed to get along with him and Gooden. A few days before the incident, Tolbert even drove Blackwell to a nearby Lowe’s for some supplies, he said.

“He seemed like a normal person. I had no idea anything like this would happen at all. This caught me completely by surprise. I didn’t know what was going on and I couldn’t believe the pain I was feeling at the time,” Tolbert said.

Tolbert said he’s glad to see that Blackwell is being held in jail without bond.

“I wouldn’t have felt very safe to know that he is out in the streets awaiting trial,” Tolbert said.


i cannot even believe what i just saw/read.
you just never know.
well the family set up a gofundme for the hospital bills.
this is what they said in a quick snippet:

I have watched Marquez’s mother suffer right along with him. When he came out to her, she told me that her son being harmed was her greatest fear. It’s a shame that our society places that kind on fear in a parent’s heart. It gives you a feeling of helplessness, and when it actually occurs, you lose hope. Marquez is home now, but has a long road to recovery. Through it all, he has remained strong and not disheartened by what has happened to him. I am so impressed by his character. He has been focused on healing, and in a way, has been holding up his mother.  

The family needs immediate help with medical bills, and the everyday expenses of recovery such as prescription drugs and dressings for the burns.  I and the family will be so grateful for any donation your heart compels you to give.  

All donated funds will be used for medical bills, prescriptions, supplies, and everyday expenses such as rent and utilities.  Marquez assisted his mother with home expenses. He had just started a new job, so he doesn’t have work benefits.

this is just sad all around.
i hate to read things like this,
but this is the reality of life.
some are just not accepting.
i can see why some aren’t out to their family.
i hope that asshole gets thrown to the sharks since he likes water so much.

  1. Either there’s more to this story or dude is mentally ill.

    How could he have not known dude had a boyfriend and dude lives with his mom and he’s dating her? They were on a mattress in the living room! I’m assuming he had a key or someone let him in so he could boil the water.

    If he can’t stand the sight of gay men together he’s in the worst city ever.

    1. It’s possible he has seen them together in the apartment but has never seen them in an intimate position like spooning probably in their underwear while they were asleep.I have an uncle like that he is “accepting” of my cousin and his boyfriend as long as they don’t act like a couple.So no kissing,hand holding,touching,etc in his presence.The asshole probably spent the night with the mother,woke up saw them in the living room.He was so disgusted he walked into the kitchen boiled water and threw it on them.I don’t understand why this isn’t a hate crime since he attacked them because they were a same sex couple.

  2. This scares the crap out of me, I have been to those apartments before and it just screams unsafe over there. I felt uncomfortable being over there because there were some definitely shady people over there.

    I’m going to add this family to my prayers and I will be sending some money to the go find me page. Smh this is so fucked up I’m out have every job I have worked at everyone knew it. I got along great with people with my guard down but I wonder how they would react to me if I was walking hand and hand with a boyfriend. A lot of people who are “tolerant” of other people are only so when they don’t have to come into full contact of it or as long as they don’t see the person having the same rights and freedoms they do.

  3. Wow this is scary. I don’t understand people at all. If you don’t like someone for whatever reason why torture instead of leaving them alone and mind your own business. It not that hard to do.

  4. Idk where exactly we are on “The Continuum History of Apocalypticism”, but stories I read like this truly sick shit only lead me to believe we’re nearing the breakin’ point of those “last days” our grandparents used to mentally fuck us up with…

  5. That old man needs to be burned alive himself im a gsy man and my family has no problem with my sexuality my heart goes out for the two men

  6. I see old trade written all over this dude. He looks like the type who has probably messed around his whole life with boys and I dont put nothing past no grown man in the ATL. It is going to come out. He may have had a fling with one and done this to get back. You have to be a cold blooded ass person to do some fowl shit like this but again this is an old undercover queen who was probably jealous he could not live his life in the open. Hopefully they give his ass the maximum allowed penalty and when he gets out his next stop will be the cemetery.

  7. Omg no words… And my dad said the same thing when I came out to him. He was in fear of my safety. People can be so disgusting. Lock the monster up and let him rot!

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
