A terrifying video shows a drunk lady knocking down a street performer’s piano and stealing his money as he was performing in Georgia, US. According to the New York post, the video that has stirred indignation shows a busker called Andrew singing Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” on the streets when a random woman interrupts his performance.
A female youth wrecks a street performer’s keyboard and then takes his money. If that wasn’t enough, she taunts him because he can’t do anything about it. How is any of this even acceptable? pic.twitter.com/V4Cyf8YHpN

She forcefully placed her hand on his musical instrument and randomly punched down on the keys at the first time. She returned a second time, knocking over his entire instrument, stealing money from his jar, and fleeing the scene. Passers-by “booed” the woman and assisted the busker in picking up his instrument from the ground. Many others asked him whether he was okay, and one even handed him money.
”This is one of the worst things somebody’s probably ever done to me while street performing,’’ the busker says in the video. ”Shout out to the guy that took me after and all the people and helped out after seeing what happened. It really restores my faith in humanity,” the artist added at the end of the video.
The Internet Was Outraged by The Woman’s Actions and Chastised Her in The Comments Section
The internet was outraged by the woman’s actions and chastised her in the comments section. Others applauded the visitors’ kindness as well as the busker’s calm attitude.
‘Enough is enough. Every act should be followed by the appropriate consequences. Punishment is needed,” one person said.
”The good and bad of society in one video,” said another.
‘The nice thing is to see how other people treat him and how kind. And even the first time she tried to touch his piano, other girls stopped her. Bad people exist but this video actually shows that the good outweighs. People didn’t just stand by, they jumped in to try & help.” Remarked the third.
”This is just disrespect on another level. When people have the guts to come out and perform, they get in the zone, just to see people happy. I don’t even know if I would’ve gotten into a fight or not,” added a fourth.
”Totally unacceptable he was just trying to give everyone a good time playing music kudos to the guy at the end and everyone who helped out,” said another.
