Remember yesterday when the so down-to-earth she’s practically sweltering at the earth’s core Jennifer Lawrence was telling a story about her “bar fight?“ Right, that was totally silly. But do you recall the part where the guy told her to eff off when she wouldn’t take a picture with them? It demonstrated that there are scary, angry people in the world who are especially angry at celebrities. A prime example would be this dude who randomly went after Mario “AC Slater” Lopez at a spa in Las Vegas. Mario escaped unscathed but his smartphone didn’t. It’s ok, Mario. There’s going to be a $1,000 rich person status symbol phone available soon.
TMZ says that Mario was leaving the spa at Planet Hollywood when he bumped into an angry dude. Angry dude started some shit.
We’re told Mario said “excuse me” to the man, who replied “you got a problem?” The dude was about to step to Mario and make physical contact before an employee got between them.
(I’m a man (stop laughing) but I don’t recall being issued a pamphlet at birth called “Ridiculous Dick Contest-Type Things To Say To Other Men When You’re Feeling Insecure” Everyone says the same thing! Did he follow it up with “come at me bro?” I have literally witnessed those phrases said in an absolutely non-joking manner in drinking establishments MULTIPLE times. Men, we need to do better. Or I need to hang out at classier drinking establishments. Maybe it’s just Boston?
Mario realized he had left his phone on a bench in the locker room. He mentioned how he was going to retrieve it. I’m not sure what happened next exactly, but the angry dude got ahold of it first. And hummed it off a wall, destroying it. Hotel security and the police were both called, but Mario didn’t want to press charges. Planet Hollywood did get him a new phone free of charge, though. He was later seen at the Jennifer Lopez show with his wife, so he’s fine.
Oh, and angry dude is reportedly a “known troublemaker” and has been banned from the spa. This guy makes a habit of this? Las Vegas is the most distracting place on Earth. The people-watching alone should soothe even the most savage beast. And the drinks are free if you (literally) play your cards right. Sit your ass down at nickel slots, have a watered-down cocktail, and chill the fuck out, angry dude.
