Why would anyone want to punch him?

Some folks just want to inflict harm on other people for any or no reason. Some folks are just wired wrong.

A few years back, there was a man in Chicago who was running up and down State St. punching people in the head for no apparent reason. Even punched out a female anchor who was leaving the news studio after filming a report on the very man. Turned out he was schizophrenic. Maybe this person is also suffering from a mental illness.

Or he's just an angry person who lashed out on the first person he saw. Either way, senseless.

Can anyone else believe the coincidence?

After not having been in the news for 25 years, Louis Tully (Moranis) gets punched by a thug 4 streets away from 55 Central Park West.

A global plauge, murder wasps, fires, locust swarms... and now Rick Moranis gets punched in the head.

Really 2020, really?

This news story made me angrier than is probably healthy and sensible. And confused, but mostly angry.

Some are people who just want attention. Others are just nut balls who come in off the street.

Seems to be a recurring thing in NYC these days. People randomly punching the elderly. Google it. Lots of stories. It's insane.

I hope they find the punk that did this and I hope he gets thrown in with some fans of Moranis.
