- The Marvel star is getting trolled after video surfaced of him breaking up a fight at an In-N-Out Burger.
- “Absurd,” his lawyer said of rumors he staged the fight to distract from his NYC domestic-violence case.
- Focus instead on new video showing Majors’ accuser “uninjured” minutes after he allegedly hit her, she urged.
Actor Jonathan Majors is getting trolled mightily online for “staging” video of himself breaking up a fight between two female high-schoolers near a Hollywood In-N-Out Burger.
The Marvel star’s heroism, first reported by TMZ, was filmed as a publicity stunt, memesters are claiming, as an attempt to distract the public from his ugly domestic-violence case in Manhattan.
Nonsense, his lawyer responded Friday, shortly before the actor’s latest court hearing on the misdemeanor case.
“Suggesting that the video of Mr. Majors breaking up the fight is staged is absurd,” the lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, told Insider.
“One of the girls at the school has come out today and confirmed it was real,” she added.
Both TMZ’s and the newly-surfaced video, shot from another angle, shows Majors running up to two young women as they brawled Monday on the pavement outside Hollywood High School.
Majors had been across the street, picking up takeout for his girlfriend, actor Meagan Good, Chaudhry confirmed to Insider.
Other students can be seen in the videos just watching – or watching and filming – and doing nothing to intercede.
But Majors pushed the two young women apart, telling them, “No, no, no, it’s OK,” as they repeatedly tried to get past him and continue the fight.
