Woman Asks Man to Stop Texting During Movie, Gets Accused of Assault

Posted: May 25th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Woman Asks Man to Stop Texting During Movie, Gets Accused of AssaultSubmit Comment
About a week ago, we heard of a man who politely asked a woman next to him to stop using her cell phone during the musical they were both watching. After the woman refused, the man grabbed her phone and threw it across the theater. Police was called and he may now be facing criminal charges. But he was a hero to many at that theater.

Around the same time, a similar situation was occurring, but one that was handled very differently.

A woman was at a movie theater in Toronto, where a man next to her was constantly taking his phone out to text. The light from the phone was bothering her, so she leaned over and said to him: "Excuse me ... would you mind turning it off?"

The man refused, so the woman reached over and put her hand over his phone to block the light. The man abruptly got up and walked away, only to return with an usher who escorted the woman out of the theater. "I was shocked, absolutely shocked," she said. "The usher informed me the police had been called."

It turned out that the man alleged that the woman assaulted him. When police arrived and questioned both parties, they decided not to press charges.

Meanwhile, the theater released a statement, asking people to speak to a manager if someone is texting, rather than deal with the situation themselves.

I have a friend that almost got fired from a theater for going up to someone who was texting through a movie and told them the ending to the movie, saying he must not care as he was on the phone the whole time.

Toronto is Miami of Canada. It's the worst. Crack smoking mayor, hipsters wishing they were in Portland, feminists.

The first dude reminded me of that scene in the first ep of Californication.
