Fed up with a bunch of noisy moviegoers sitting behind him during a showing of Titanic 3D, a Washington man decided to take matters into his own hands: he stepped over the seat and physically confronted his tormentors.
Now, who among us hasn't thought of doing that to inconsiderate jerks sitting behind us?
But problem is for the man above, he struck a 10-year-old kid.
The man, who told police he thought the person he hit was a grown man, was watching “Titanic” in 3-D with his girlfriend and had asked the people sitting behind to quiet down and stop throwing popcorn, but they laughed at him, he said.
“I got so mad that it just happened,” Yong Hyun Kim, 21, told police who arrested him the night of April 11 at the AMC Kent Station 14, in Kent, a south Seattle suburb.
The 10-year-old lost a tooth and had a bloody nose in the confrontation.
Striking a child is a serious matter, but - surprisingly to me - there was actually wide support for the guy in the comment sections of various news outlets.
What do you think? Was this guy a jerk or a hero?
