Hey, Look It's Paul Rudd! Oh, OK, Damn, No, Not Paul Rudd

Posted By on Mon, Oct 27, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Over the weekend, this video took over the internets showing some good Samaritans tackling a homophobic ass who started to attack a person at an airport gate. The video shows the whole mess taking place, and then the guy getting tackled to the ground. But wait, who is that in the anti-bigotry pile-up?

Today, the Wonkette dutifully pointed out what no one seemed to notice that the guy in the brown suit is actor Paul Rudd and then dutifully added some truth to whole drama.

Unfortunately, my dear Wonkette and others who got on the celebrity hero train were absolutely wrong. An addendum to the bigotry-fighting saga via Gawker:

Today, the internet has ascribed an inspiring bit of heroism to Paul Rudd, after video surfaced this weekend of a man who almost, kind of looks like Paul Rudd helping to prevent an alleged hate crime at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (as shown in the video above). Alas, @TheRealPaulRudd was actually thousands of miles away, likely doing nothing, while real American heroes got their hands dirty.
