On Saturday, May 18, a video of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former governor of California, getting kicked in the back by an unidentified man in South Africa surfaced on social media.
The Terminator actor had gone to South Africa for his Arnold Athlete Africa event when the incident happened.
Schwarzenegger had been at the event celebrating a wheelchair-bound archery athlete on his Snapchat when the unidentified man came out of nowhere and kicked him in the back.
In the video, it could be seen that the man, who fell immediately after kicking the heavily built actor, was picked up, subdued and dragged out of the scene. He was heard kicking and screaming that he needs a Lamborghini.
The actor, who received messages of concern after the video surfaced, took to his Twitter to put everyone at ease. He thanked people for their concerns and stated that there was no need to worry.
According to Schwarzenegger, he did not realize he was kicked in the back until he saw the video. He stated that he thought he was jostled by the crowd.
He wrote: "Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat."
The former governor also advised people to stop sharing the video because that would be giving the man who attacked him the cheap fame he wanted, instead of athletes like the boy he had been filming at the time of the incident.
It is no longer news that celebrities often get trolled by people on social media and off social media. However, what is not common is someone attacking a celebrity in public without fear of being arrested or punished.
Even people who troll celebrities on social media often apologise when they receive backlash from making hurtful comments, Legit.ng had earlier reported that a Nigerian man had apologised to comedian Akpororo after getting cursed for trolling his wife on her birthday.
