Twitter misplaced its collective thoughts on Sunday evening when a video of a person that was presupposed to be former NFL offensive lineman Bruce Campbell getting pummeled in a Walmart went viral.
Seems, it wasn’t Bruce Campbell in any respect – although that doesn’t make the video any much less insane.
Within the video, the person – who, once more, is just not Campbell – is unmasked, gesturing towards somebody behind the counter and yelling “do one thing, motherf–ker!”
Then, a person – smaller than the man who began the battle – walks out from behind the counter and squares up with him. The instigator throws the primary punch, however rapidly is overmatched by the person behind the counter, who knocks him on the bottom.
At one level, the person from behind the counter punches him so arduous that his head hits in opposition to the self-checkout aisle. He then will get knocked onto the ground and pummeled a number of instances within the face.
The Athletic’s Ted Nguyen, nevertheless, blows up the narrative that the previous lineman was the one taking the beating.
“This tweet from a troll account which was joking began this entire factor,” Nguyen tweeted. “If you happen to have a look at the unique video which he quote tweeted, there’s no reference to Bruce.”
Campbell performed 4 NFL seasons as an offensive lineman from 2010 to 2013, two with the Raiders and two with the Carolina Panthers, and was briefly a member of the Jets in 2014 however was reduce earlier than the season began. And once more, he was not the person on this video.
