Jimmy Featherstone, who is dubbed a real life Ken doll for idolising the character, was repeatedly punched and kicked, and made subject to homophobic slurs. The 22-year-old man said the attackers wanted to “f*** up my perfect face” in a deliberate act.
My face may be broken, and my heart may be crushed, but this assault will not be forgotten.
Jimmy, who says he has had a plastic surgery obsession, was rushed to hospital with a broken nose and a nasty wound on his head.
His breathing has been impaired and he is awaiting brain scan results after the “devastating” attack, Hull Live reports.
Jimmy said: “I questioned myself over and over why me.
“They kept calling me gay before coming over to break my nose into pieces.
“I shall be getting my solicitor involved to take this to court.
“I’m absolutely devastated and believe people should not have to face this by trolls.
“I’m still in pain with breathing, and just waiting for my results to come back.
“I’m taking each day at a time to get better.
“I sometimes wonder what goes through people’s minds.”
Police confirmed the incident happened between 9pm and 10pm at a bar in Silver Street, Hull, before being reporting during the early hours of Sunday May 30.
Jimmy is due to do some filming for a new TV show this month and is undeterred that the injuries will ruin this opportunity.
The boutique director, from west Hull, said: “It’s the judgemental world we live in today. I for one am lost for words as to why I was the target.
“My face may be broken, and my heart may be crushed, but this assault will not be forgotten.
“My life goes on and I will continue to film for the show from next week.
“I’m honoured and privileged to be working with a great casting company and life goes on.”
Jimmy, who has a large social media following, thanked his mother online for looking after him after the incident.
He has since been resting at home, but getting better day by day.
A number of his social media followers shared their condolences.
One follower said: “Take some time now for yourself buddy to recover and heal. Have some time away from social will do you a world of good.”
Another person added: “Absolutely awful. Jealously is a terrible thing, I despise people like these animals. Get well soon.”
A third said: “This is dreadful. How dare they touch that beautiful face.”
Jimmy forks out a fortune on his perfect look.
He has his hair done every week, and a filler appointment can cost around £300 every time.
He also takes helicopter rides to concerts and limos to parties, and is now seeking an older man, around 40 and above.
Jimmy’s 22nd birthday celebrations cost around £2,000 which was described as “classy yet fabulous”.
It involved a three-tier cake, fireworks upon entrance to the party and a bouquet of flowers containing £20 notes.
