• Play Canceled After Actor
Breaks Character to Fight
an Audience Member
Me
a slimehater
I just looked this up and it turned out it was about a production of "cat on a hot
tin roof', a play which famously features a closeted gay lead character. a
member of the audience was catcalling female actresses and shouting
homophobic abuse when actor john lacy, who played the character big daddy,
paused his performance and called him out. the heckler replied "what are you
going to do about it?" to which lacy responded by leaping down into the
audience and knocking him to the ground.

    • So this is a little embellished but it’s basically right; drunk guy was heckling people and called the guy a f*g multiple times, so the guy just pushed him over and had him carried out

    • All yall homophobes supporting the audience member are missing the point. The issue here is that the rest of the audience payed to see a play, and this dude is screaming and ruining it for them. Imagine if you payed for a movie ticket, and some dick was just yelling at the screen the whole time.

    • Big daddy isn't a closeted homosexual at all. Have you seen the play/movie? He is a plantation owner who has cancer and is the father of the main character. Not gay at all. Stop pushing this gay nonsense when it isn't there. But screw it, you're going to anyways right.
