Actor and harmless human Rick Moranis was punched by a stranger in a random and unprovoked attack in New York City Thursday morning. The attack occurred on the Upper West Side. A man, wearing an "I Love New York" sweatshirt, assaulted Moranis, 67, knocking him to the ground. The asshole walked away and is still 'at large.'
Moranis went to a nearby hospital for pain in his back, head, and right hip. After being treated, he went to the 20th Precinct and reported what occurred. He told police that his attacker hit him with a closed fist. Police got hold of surveillance video, showing the attack. The video made its way around the internet.
Police are asking for the public's help in locating the piece of shit. If you see the piece of shit, call 1-800-577-TIPS.
Rick Moranis' spokesperson said that he is 'fine.'
It's baffling and disgusting that a person would randomly attack another person, let alone someone as incredible as Rick Moranis. Aside from being a respected actor, he is a humble family man. After his wife died, he left acting behind in order to raise his children. His children were more important than his job. You don't see famous people doing something like that. Rick Moranis is a class act, and I am hoping to fucking God that the douche that attacked him is arrested and dragged in gen pop.
