NYPD Shove Man Attempting Ellen DeGeneres Dance Dare to the Ground: ‘You F-kin' Kidding Me, Bro?' (Video)

 

Note to the public: Do not attempt to pull off a dance dare for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" behind a New York Police Department officer.

A video that began circulating on Monday showing NYPD officers surrounding prankster Alexander Bok, a black man, pulling off the stunt that is supposed to be humorous, but quickly turned into a nightmare. When officers noticed Bok dancing behind one of them on Christmas Eve, they immediately surrounded him and began angrily questioning him before eventually throwing him to the ground.

"What the f-k are you doing behind me?" one officer says. "What the f-k is wrong with you?"

"I'm just dancing," Bok explained.

"Are you f-kin' kidding me, bro?" the same officer asks before shoving the man to the ground. "Take a f-kin' walk."

Bok's decision to test police patience couldn't have come at a worse time, considering two NYPD officers were shot and killed by a lone gunman just two days beforehand. Still, NYPD officials have told the media that they are investigating the incident.

Watch the prank gone wrong that Bok says in a longer cut was inspired by Psy's "Gangna

m Style."

Ok, not the best time to do this...obviously. The cops were still pretty heavy-handed with him. Ask what he's doing, check for weapons, then let him go. No need for name-calling and shoving. 😕

Tests their patience? this is a clip they do on Ellen's show where you dance behind someone and stop if they look at you

I saw an analysis of this that was such a suck off to the police department. People are admonished to never do anything stupid but when the cops did cruel or stupid things, that same analyst shrugged it off as the police being human and scared of the bad dancing man.

Hopefully those cops will show up at the NFL playoffs this weekend and shove the idiots doing their stupid dances to the ground.

Just another great example of our law enforcement misusing their power....

Um cops are being assassinated and recently got attacked by a guy with a hammer, so I'm not sure why anyone would stand behind a cop doing anything that involved fast movements such as the guy is doing with this dance.  You don't have to be a genius to figure out the guy dancing knew this would provoke a confrontation with the cops so he can get his 15 minutes of fame.

That was an appropriate and acceptable reaction to someone dancing, in your opinion?
