Jesse Eisenberg Tells Anti-Gay Protesters At Pride: “You’re So F*cked Up” (VIDEO)
Jesse Eisenberg had a run-in with anti-gay protesters in London on Saturday, during the city’s “Pride” weekend. Watch below.
The actor was strolling through the streets with his bike when he came across a protest by a Christian organization. A man on a microphone can be heard saying, “Well, I’ll tell you this: You’ll really never know that God is love til you understand the justice of God. You’ve firstly got to understand that God is just. It’s all very well saying God is a god of love. We would agree. God is a god of love. But he’s also a god of justice. God has his morals.”
In the footage, Eisenberg is seen approaching the group, which stands behind a metal barricade with signs, including ones that say, “Because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience,” and, “Abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” Another reads, “Pride compasseth them about as a chain… when pride cometh, then cometh shame.”
A guy asks the actor, “Is your mind closed?” Eisenberg laughingly repeats the question, before telling him, “You’re so f*cked up.” And with that, the movie star continues his walk with his bike, passing a group of people who were dressed up for a nearby pride rally.
Eisenberg is currently in London starring in the play, The Spoils, on the West End. Check out video of the incident below.
