Joaquin Phoenix makes art until someone gets punched in the face

Joaquin Phoenix continues to shatter our perception of reality by pretending to beat up a fan at his “concert” last night in Miami, according to the AP:

He began rapping to a beat played by the DJ and nodding to the music, although most of the lyrics were unintelligible. Then he responded to someone who appeared to be heckling him in the audience near the stage.
“We have a (double-expletive) in the audience,” he said before jumping into the crowd. It was not immediately clear whether the two men exchanged any blows.
“I saw the guy screaming at Joaquin, and Joaquin just came down,” said Jorge Lledo, 30, of Miami Beach.

Joaquin yells at the guy “I’ve got millions of dollars in my fucking bank account, what do you got?” which lets me know right away this is a farce. With a cleverly-masked by a “documentary” heroin addiction like Joaquin’s, he’s lucky if has five maybe 10 bucks. Or a suitcase full of Pop Tarts.
