It turns out Batman v Superman star Jesse Eisenberg has no time for anti-gay trolls. He’s currently in London starring in The Spoils, a play he also wrote that is currently playing at Trafalgar Studios. That theatre is just steps from Trafalgar Square, which was the focus of London Pride events on Saturday, with the result that on his way to work, Eisenberg came across a bunch of anti-gay, ‘Christian’ protesters.
The meeting was captured on camera, with Eisenberg watching as the protesters use tortuous logic to explain why God is a ‘God of love’, but also one who’s happy for them to spread their particular brand of hatred and judgement. One protester then asks Jesse, “Is your mind closed?”.
Eisenberg responds with the rather pithy, “You’re so fucked up.”
Watching the video you could almost feel sorry for the protesters, as despite having a nice, large area cordoned off for them to spout their nonsense, hardly anybody bothered to turn up. While proper Pride attendees got messages of support from the likes of David Cameron and Jeremy Corbyn, the protesters just got a movie star swearing at them. Oh well.
Take a look at the encounter below.
