Anna's Doc: They're Going After Me 'Cause I'm Gay

7/15/2010 8:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the doctors on trial for allegedly conspiring to fuel Anna Nicole Smith with drugs claims he's being prosecuted because he's openly gay and a member of an ethnic minority.

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, an openly gay man of East Indian descent, claims in legal docs obtained by TMZ, that there is "abundant evidence that others similarly situated to Dr. Kapoor were not prosecuted in this or comparable cases, and that the District Attorney's Office targeted Dr. Kapoor in order to buttress claims and agendas." 

In the docs, Kapoor's lawyer, Ellyn Garofalo, claims a picture published by TMZ showing her client in the 2005 Gay Pride Parade in West Hollywood was "the catalyst for his prosecution."

No beans for brains...they are going after you for giving her enough drugs to kill several people. Nobody gives a twit that you're gay. too many drugs and patient died. She didn't die from you being too gay.

No Dr., I think that they're going after you because you allegedly over-prescribed narcotics to your client and she is now Dead...

Dr. Kapoor is a kind and caring physician. He should never have been indicted with the other defendents. His name is not associated with the drug stash found with Anna. The element of predjudice against him is truly evident.

No, dude. They're going after you because you prescribed drugs to a drug addict and it resulted in her death. Were you also the precribing doctor in her son's case?

Moron.

I wish they would start going after all doctors that are found to be prescribing to ANY drug addict - not just famous people.
