The new movie, Joker, is causing some ruckus around the U.S.
A man who was attending the screening of the new movie“Joker” caused moviegoers to leave early after he loudly cheered and applauded during murder scenes.
ABC News reports that the young man caused a scene during a Friday night screening at Times Square’s AMC.
Shockingly, he cheered on the various murder scenes in “Joker.”
Some moviegoers yelled at him while he was spitting on them as they were leaving the movie theatre.
Witness Nathanael Hood told ABC News that he was feeling afraid due to the man’s behavior during the screening.
“About halfway through when Joker started killing people…”
“…and monologuing about how society is evil he started clapping really loudly and incessantly for a good minute. People started yelling for him to shut up, but he kept clapping and cheering like mad. I was scared. I’m sure a lot of other people were,”
The man continued to make loud noises during a gunfight and became aggressive when more attendees told him to stop. Another witness was sitting beside the man and said he saw him pour a full bottle of alcohol into his drink.
He was eventually escorted by security and Hood said the man was being interrogated by security outside of the theatre.
