Bullying at schools is expected, but the AIRPORT?!
October 23rd at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport a man began attacking another man over his PINK SHIRT! Andrew Kennedy, who was waiting to board a flight with his brother, mother and father, started filming when he saw the argument begin!
At first only one man, in a black cowboy hat, steps up in defense of the bullied passenger. The aggressor goes from verbal abuse to KICKING the man in the pink shirt and EVERYONE in that area comes to his rescue! Awaiting passengers jump on the attacker and take him to the ground!
Airport security arrives within seconds and the man is removed from the area, but not before he yells out more ridiculous comments!
WARNING! VIDEO contains LANGUAGE some find OFFENSIVE!
The man who was arrested has been identified! 27 year old McCleish Christmas Benham, of Shelbyville, Tennessee. He was arrested for public intoxication and assault after he attacked a man he thought was homosexual!
Andrew Kennedy, who filmed the incident, asked his brother Neal, for his reaction, “We saw a very troubled man. We hope that he was under the influence of some kind of substance … Because if he wasn’t and that’s his true personality, then he’s going to have a long road in front of him,” Neal Kennedy said.
At the end of the video, Andrew guesses the video may go viral and he was right! Millions of views later, people continue to watch and tell other about it!
This is a WONDERFUL reminder that behavior like this will NOT be tolerated! Please share this story!
