As reported by CBS News New York, a young man found himself escorted out of a Manhattan screening for “Joker.” Moviegoers of the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square grew concerned as one young man began to cheer and applaud the onscreen murder, violence, and society examining speeches of Joaquin Phoenix’s, Joker. This was followed by a belligerent speech from the disturber when confronted by other theater patrons. His behavior led to some of his fellow movie viewers leaving the theater early due to fear of violence occurring, the young man allegedly spitting on those who left.

This comes alongside reports of theaters and local police agencies around the nation, making it clear that safety would be one of their concerns for the first feature film starring the clown prince of crime away from Batman. In New York City theater, where the young man was removed, extra security was present.

These concerns follow fears that the movie may inspire acts of violence, similar to the mass shooting in Colorado in 2012 during a screening of the Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

No further information was given about the alarming movie patron, other than that he was spotted sometime later being questioned after his removal.
