Interesting look at American culture / attitudes toward European royal

This article, and especially its comments, are great insight into American cultural values.

A brawl at a Manhattan nightclub over the weekend ended with Monaco’s Prince Pierre Casiraghi in the hospital and a New York man facing assault charges.

The incident occurred around 2 a.m. Saturday at the Double Seven Nightclub, when according to police 24-year-old Casiraghi, the grandson of Grace Kelly, got into a confrontation with 47-year-old Adam Hock, a former nightclub owner.

Casiraghi reportedly approached Hock, leading to a physical confrontation. Hock, who according to the New York Post was sitting with friends including supermodels Natasha Poly, Valentina Zalyaeva and Anja Rubik, allegedly punched Casigraghi and three friends who came to his aid.

“Pierre’s face looked broken, with deep cuts and blood everywhere,” a witness told the New York Post. “He looked like he needed plastic surgery.”

Hock was arrested and charged with four counts of third-degree assault.

What do Americans have to say about the incident?

You and 3 of your bodyguards got beat up by one 47 year old man?!? Next time you come to New York, bring some people that can protect your sorry tail if you’re gonna approach people in night clubs at 2am and try to talk crap.

An example of small fish inside a pool of shark. New Yorkers don’t care if you’re a prince or king. Self defense is self defense.

268 approve, 27 don’t

Haha. Goodnight, sweet prince. Life is different outside the castle there sweety! You should go back to harassing maids and bossing around butlers back in Monaco. There you can be a big man, in that tiny little portion of the world where they are paid to act like they respect you.

According to the Newser website, the Prince and his buddies walked up to Hock’s table and were obnoxious to the models he was with; they also started stealing shots from the $500.00 bottle of Vodka on the table. In other words, a group of rich young twerps tried to pick up some hot chicks who were having dinner with a friend, acted like idiotic morons, and were schooled by their elder. Here’s to hoping Mr. Hock wins the case.
