The leader for a Daily Life story: “Donald Trump supporters allegedly harass stars of Silicon Valley in LA bar”.
“Harass” instantly evolves into “attacked”:
Two stars of the TV series Silicon Valley, which airs in Australia on The Comedy Channel, were allegedly attacked by supporters of Donald Trump in the days following the US election.
Kumail Nanjiani and co-star Thomas Middleditch – both vocal opponents of the president elect – have recounted an unpleasant encounter with his supporters in a bar over the weekend.
Approached by alleged Trump supporters, Nanjiani declines to discuss the election:
‘Hey we don’t wanna discuss politics right now.’ His friends goes ‘oh they’re cucks.’ Then starts yelling at us. ‘CUCKS CUCKS CUCKS!’ He starts getting in my face. Thomas puts his hand on the dude’s chest to stop him. ‘Don’t touch me you cuck. Wanna go outside?'”
Security intervened before things escalated.
On the lower end of the harassment scale this isn’t newsworthy anywhere, much less on the other side of the planet.
