LAUDERHILL, Fla. — This was more than a bare-knuckle fight. One combatant was caught on video with his pants down.
A video of two men fighting at a Wawa in South Florida has gone viral, with the clip piling up more than 3.7 million views in one day, the Sun-Sentinel reported. What has caused the clip to receive so much attention is that the pants of one of the fighters fell down during the scrap, exposing his rear end.
The fight happened at the Wawa in Lauderhill, according to the newspaper. It was caught on a cellphone camera by Darien Rollins, of North Lauderdale, at about 2 a.m. Monday, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Rollins said he began taping the action and providing colorful commentary as a way to make light of the incident so that the men would stop fighting, WPLG reported.
They kept on brawling.
Neither man was injured, but one certainly has a bruised ego.
Rollins, 24, told the Sun-Sentinel that he stopped at the Wawa for a sandwich. He was returning from Fort Myers, where he was working on a podcast.
“No, it’s goin’ down, go ahead. They wildin’, his (expletive) is out,” Rollins said on the video, which lasted 2 minutes, 19 seconds. “I just want my sandwich.”
Another man, wearing a face mask, tries to break up the skirmish but then gives up, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
“Let them boys do what they gotta do!” Rollins said. “Take ‘em to the sky. Up top, chicken box. Bruh, pull up your pants, fam.”
At one point, Rollins told the men to “take it outside,” but the fight continued.
“I was trying to diffuse it by then because it wasn’t really a fight,” Rollins told WPLG on Tuesday. “They were just kind of hugging each other because his pants were down and it was embarrassing, so I was like, ‘You guys could end it now.’”
Rollins said the reason for the fight had to do with one man holding the door for the other one.
“He had held the door for the other guy and the other guy didn’t appreciate it,” Rollins told WPLG reported. “He wasn’t feeling it. He told him. “Don’t ever hold the door for me. I don’t need no help.’”
Both men declined to press charges, the television station reported. Wawa asked the men not to return.
Rollins posted the footage to his @dd0llaz Instagram account while the fight was in progress, the Sun-Sentinel reported. He then posted the video to Twitter just after 9:30 a.m. Monday.
