Superhero impersonators threw punches on Hollywood Boulevard today.
Costumed superhero characters, two Captain Americas and a Spider-Man, threw punches at each other right on the main tourist part of the famouse Boulevard in front of Madame Tussauds kiosk, feet away from the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.
“All of a sudden, two Captain Americas and Spider-Man started circling around me. Captain America just hit one of them and Spider-Man started bleeding,” said Vernardo Stroud to the CBS local affiliate.
“I was stunned at the moment. Then all of a sudden, it just got to me…I got to get them out of the way. The tourists just looked around like they were enjoying the moment,” he said.
Juan Diego, a native of Spain, told KCAL9’s Suraya Fadel that he was one of the men involved in the fight.
The group reportedly was arguing over sidewalk territory.
“I tell them the truth. I tell them, ‘You’re a thief!’” said the Captain America impersonator. “That is not good for the image, the perception, the spirit of Hollywood. We are all ambassadors.”
No arrests were made and no one was injured in the incident.
