He's charged with filing a false report, yet Calum McSwiggan took to Facebook to claim innocence.
The 18-minute video was directed by out director Ryan Murphy, released by the Human Rights Campaign, and features some of the world's biggest celebrities, including Jane Fonda, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Kerry Washington, and Caitlyn Jenner.
