A video of a pro-choice male hairdresser roundhouse kicking a pro-life activist in Toronto during a demonstration has gone viral online.
The incident occurred on Sept. 30 at Campaign Life Coalition’s demonstration in the Canadian city, Global News reported. Pro-life leader Marie-Claire Bissonnette explained that she and about 76 other pro-life protesters were taking part at an event called Life Chain.
“This guy comes up and I guess he sees what’s going on, and so he took out three markers and he drew on two of our signs, and so I shouted, ‘Protect your signs,'” said Bissonnette. “I guess that gave him the idea to start scribbling on people’s backs, so he scribbled on five people’s backs.”
Bissonnette said that she started recording the man on the phone, and the two started arguing about a hypothetical situation regarding whether a raped teen should have an abortion. The man is then seen delivering a roundhouse-kick to Bissonnette in the shoulder, which knocked her phone to the ground.
“I did not see it coming. I didn’t anticipate any violence,” Bissonnette said. “As soon as he kicked me, the only thing I could think of was to get the police, make sure someone calls the police.”
Bissonnette said that she intends on filing a complaint, but alleged that police seem reluctant to help.
“I told them what happened and showed them the video and they said, ‘What do you want us to do about it?'” the activist said. “Just the way they phrased things kind of leaned toward encouraging me not to press charges.”
The Human Defense Initiative identified the man as Jordan Hunt, a hairdresser in Toronto. Until Wednesday he was a sub-contractor at a local hair studio. The shop has since said that after finding out what happened, it will no longer employ him.
