Blatant black on white racist hate crime. were he not a celebrity, would go COMPLETELY unreported like the rest.
If a white guy had punched a radom black person the media would immediately call it a hate crime and label the suspect a white supremacist!

Released without bail and given a gift card paid for by the tax payers.

Why isn't the race of the suspect mentioned ? Oh wait I forgot that the media only says his race when he is white.

It was a "Mostly Peaceful" stroll through NYC for Rick Moranis
Imagine the narrative the media would be pushing if it was Samuel l. Jackson(because the similar age) being randomly attacked by a WHITE MAN. The hypocrisy, I love it.

This... This make's me sad, angry and a few other thing's 😢 I hate this.

He's actually not fine. He's having multiple pains. He's 67 being attacked by a man in his 30s or 40s. Completely uncivilized

Hey Mr. Lemon. I guess this was imaginary violence? I mean since you had a nice dinner out and the world only revolves around you and Fredo.

Gosh. Maybe defunding the police not a good idea?
This was a very racist black man who hit an innocent older Jewish man.

But all the leftist journalists say the crime is a myth! That it isn’t real! This must be fake!

New York now belongs to the criminals. Abandon the place, there's going to be no circling of the wagons now. It's over.
Cecilia Marie

You mean random black on white hate crime? You mean large black man attacks small innocent white guy? Oh he's just a suspect and race magically had nothing to do with it because he's black and all black people are saints now that can do no wrong. The news is a joke. This country is a joke.

The knock out game isn't real. Tell Rick Moranis that.
Kelly McShane
Kelly McShane:
Yes. Rick will be pressured to not press charges and forgive.Opening up a dialog between the two.I am sure it's already happening
Yeah, let's just pretend that's "random" and "unknown". Just like when the guy punched the old lady. Totally random. No pattern at all.

It’s a HATE CRIME because he is white... had this been the other way, there’s no question the media would label it as a random attack... when we find the perpetrator, you’ll see he has a history of violence, and member of the BLM
Jennifer Anderson
Jennifer Anderson:
The media is responsible for this!! They’ve caused such a divisive in America, that has cause several unprovoked attacks against white men in particular. Of coarse the media downsizes these events. Congratulations media.. hope the karma is returned your way

Michele Richard
Michele Richard:
Poor guy. Honestly though, he has enough money to live where he wants and choosing to live in or even visit the worst and most unsafe city in the U.S. was done at his own peril. NYC is nothing more than an embarrassment to the rest of the nation at this point. Far, far worse than Ca. can ever strive to be. Not even in the same ballpark.

Peaceful Incident!
Devin Gimple

As many comments say if the color of the people involved were switched you’d call it a hate crime.
John Johnson

“Random”. Yeah ok. If it was the other way around it would be “white supremacist punches random black guy who was on his way to choir practice”
This was a very racist black man who hit an innocent older Jewish man.
