NY Toddler Allegedly Disrupts Movie, Gets Popcorn Dumped on Head
We've all been to a movie where disruptive kids ruin the show for everyone. One NY woman got a little too heated, and took matters into her own hands...er, popcorn tub.
According to the NY Post, 25-year-old Keri Karman of Long Island got irritated when 2-year-old Harley Riggs wouldn't stop asking for food during a screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi - which is rated PG-13. Harley's mom says Karman dumped her tub of popcorn on the toddler's head and then bopped the child with the cardboard tub. Harley's mom says her toddler is now afraid of popcorn and strangers.
We can all agree that no child deserves to be assaulted by a snack food - no matter what - even if we can relate to a degree of frustration felt by the woman who paid her $11.50 to see the movie, another $10 for the popcorn, only to have her experienced ruined by a toddler being a toddler.
Why was a two-year-old brought to a movie like "The Last Jedi" anyway? When it comes to giant blockbuster films like Star Wars, should there be kid-free screenings at the movies? Should kids under the age of 5 simply be banned from PG-13 movies?
