Oh no, what a horrible afternoon at the cinema!
Three Louisiana men hoping to see Barbra Streisand in all of her glamorous glory were allegedly attacked by a bigoted assailant who was uncomfortable sharing a theater with guys he presumed were gay.
Wow! How awful!!
When the victims sat down to watch Guilt Trip, Joseph W. Menard Jr. — who was with his wife and children — yelled out hate-filled comments aimed at their sexuality.
The three men stood up for themselves and, we're proud to report, other concerned moviegoers stood up for them, too. Unfortunately, the actions of many didn't deter the violent patron.
According to the police reports, Joseph attacked at least two of the three men and fled the theater with his family!
Ugh!! We don't know where to begin?!
First, Joseph sounds is a terrible role model for his children!! Who takes their family to a matinee and commits a hate crime?!
Second, he went to see Babs as an over-protective mother who takes a road trip with Seth Rogen! Did he expect to be seated next to the Hell's Angels!?
Why are there are so many angry, narrow-minded people in this world?!
Can't we all just watch a light-hearted romp in peace?!
