Chuck Bass! What has gotten into you?!
The actor reportedly lost his cool on Thursday night at the NYC hotspot SL when he thought a patron was taking his picture. A witness, who saw the whole thing go down, recounted the story to the New York Post, saying:
“Ed thought that one of the guys from the next table was taking a photo of him, but he was really just trying to get a shot of his girlfriend. Ed freaked out. He leapt up and tried to punch the guy, but completely missed.”
So what does a celebrity do when he swings and misses a target? He talks to security and gets the guy kicked out!
The man who narrowly avoided getting socked by Westwick says that the actor proceeded to call a bouncer over and complained he was trying to start a fight.
Now, despite what witnesses saw, a spokesman from SL claims there was no confrontation at all, and adds:
“This never happened — Ed had a great time and there was no conflict of any kind.”
Either several people completely fabricated this story or Ed doesn't want the world to know that he's got lousy hand-eye coordination!
Regardless, violence is NEVER the answer, so we're glad that fist never connected. Check yourself before you wreck yourself, Westwick!
