Well, his Internet celeb status is certainly over…
While the LGBT community is currently suffering from the worst tragedy in modern American history, you'd think that all of our members would be doing their best to fight stereotypes and support one another.
Yeah… apparently that's not the case, because one out YouTube star just tried to abuse the system by instigating fear in one of our safest areas of the country.

As you may have heard, LGBT and lifestyle YouTuber Calum McSwiggan claimed to have been beaten up by three men outside of The Abbey in West Hollywood early Monday morning… but now we're hearing a very different story from local Police!
According to WeHo Station Captain Holly M. Perez, Police were originally "unable to substantiate the assault" because the 26-year-old had "no visible injuries."
But according to Holly, now there's proof Calum actually gay bashed HIMSELF after getting arrested and booked for vandalizing a car at around 2:30 a.m. local time, saying:
"[McSwiggan] was then observed injuring himself with the handle and receiver of a payphone inside the cell."
What. The. F*ck?!
We have a strong feeling Calum is going to come out in the next few days apologizing for making up the story while blaming it all on the alcohol… but c'mon, dude.

Yada yada "innocent until proven guilty," but all we're sayin' is we sure do trust the Police in WeHo…
Do U think Calum is really faking his injuries??
