A man from Cheshire in England was criticized on social media after he filmed a road rage brawl and provided color commentary for it instead of helping the victim.
According to the Daily Mail, Alec Wall was traveling through Cheshire when he came upon a strange scene. A red Mini was stopped at a light, and standing next to it in traffic was a woman in a white dress. As Wall watched, the woman lunged for the Mini’s driver’s door, wrenched it open, and began fighting with the woman behind the wheel. While the women fought, Wall pulled out his phone and started recording.
“Road Rage!” he shouted as he filmed. Apparently finding the situation extremely funny, Wall continued to film, giggling all the while and providing commentary on the scuffle.
“Oh my God, actual road in a rage!” he shouted.
Once he returned home, Wall uploaded his video to a Facebook page called Idiot UK Drivers Exposed where it racked up nearly 90,000 likes. Not everyone found it as funny as Wall did, however. Comments began piling up chastising Wall for his flip attitude and his failure to intervene in the fight.
“How about instead of laughing and screaming ‘road rage’ like a moron you do something productive like get out of your car and try to defuse the situation? Use some intelligence…” said one commenter.
“I really have failed to see what the camera man is laughing at,” said another. “It looks to me like someone being seriously assaulted. Why is that funny?”
There is no report on the cause of the incident, or how it ended.
