We spent last week making fun of celebrities who shit on the homeless, so to shake things up, we thought we’d write about Gene Hackman in a hallowed, revered light for smacking a crazy homeless man that attacked him and called his wife a cunt because that seems like something Royal Tenenbaum would probably do minus the being attacked and cunt part. TMZ reports:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the incident went down Tuesday as Hackman and his wife were leaving a Santa Fe restaurant. We’re told a homeless guy named Bruce Becker approached them in a threatening manner.
We’re told the incident escalated big time when Becker called Hackman’s wife a “c**t” — and then Hackman dished out some street justice … slapping Becker across the face.
Of course, a non-violent solution would’ve been to simply eat a warm, delicious meal in front of his attacker, but that almost never works out. Even if it’s just a Hot Pocket, you have to spend two minutes making awkward conversation with him, then another two minutes waiting for it too cool down and by then he’s already shivved you with his hobo shank and stolen your Hot Pocket. It’s like they want you to hit them.
