Cry-Baby of the Week
It's that time of week again where we get to point and laugh at someone crying on the stairs of the party that is life!
Cry-Baby #1: Lisa Everatt
The incident: A woman named Lisa Everatt was thrown out of a George Michael concert, as she was being a rowdy mess.
The appropriate response: Shame.
The actual response: Lisa took her story to the local newspaper.
According to a statement issued by the venue she was ejected from, Lisa was asked to leave for these reasons:
"We had a customer at the George Michael show who was standing and shouting throughout ballads and causing a nuisance to customers around them. It was pointed out to them on several occasions that their actions were not in keeping with the show and the rest of the audience, but they refused to change their behaviour and were asked to leave."
Claims that were backed up by several commenters on the article, who claimed that Lisa was a "complete disgrace" and had "completely ruined the first half of the show".
So it seems like a fairly open and shut case. She acted like a dick, despite repeated requests for her to not act like a dick. And they made her get out. Cool. So why on Earth would she want people to know about this? She is what, late thirties? And she was thrown out of a George Michael concert because she was incapable of chilling? Most people, upon sobering up, would be fucking HORRIFIED that anyone had seen this happen. They wouldn't contact a paper so that even more people could find out about it.
Cry-Baby #2: Rafael Delfin Sequeda
The incident: A referee made a controversial call during a children's football match.
The appropriate response: Yelling.
The actual response: Rafael Delfin Sequeda (pictured above) attacked the referee, and also a nine-year-old player.
According to reports, police were called to the match after the incident last Saturday morning. The referee was unhurt, but the attacked child had to be taken to a local hospital to be treated for "non-life-threatening injuries".
Rafael was arrested at the scene, and is being held on suspicion of misdemeanour battery.
Unfortunately the story doesn't specify what call the referee made to set Rafael off. So I guess there's a chance he might not be a cry-baby at all. Though there are very few things I can think of that a ref could say that would make me wanna publicly fight a nine-year-old.
Who is the bigger cry-baby? Please let us know what you think in the poll below. It's SUPER important, guys:
