When Joaquin Phoenix Attacks
Whoa! Seems Joaquin Phoenix is kinda sensitive about his 'joke' career as a rapper.
The latest incident in a long and shameful list has seen him jump into the audience at a Miami show to confront a guy who was heckling him.
Apparently the actor-turned-hip hop artist was performing at the LIV nightclub when an audience member began taunting him. While a professional would have either, (a) ignored the person, (b) destroyed them with freestyle, Phoenix went crazy with rage. Word is he jumped into the crowd and confronted the startled patron, getting 'all up in his grill'.
Since the entire crowd consisted of bored hipsters the confrontation came to nothing. People live blogged the incident until embarrassed security turned up and escorted Phoenix off-stage. Casey Affleck, good friend that he is, simply recorded the incident for his so-called documentary.
Anyone following his 'career change' would be aware Phoenix hasn't had much luck with this hip hop thing. Footage released a couple of weeks back showed him falling off stage at a concert. And then there's that infamous and utterly hilarious appearance on David Letterman.
Can't wait to see what he does next.
