The male feminist featured in a viral video roundhouse kicking a woman for having the audacity to hold pro-life views was arrested by Toronto police on Saturday.
Jordan Hunt, 26, has been charged with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief under $5,000, says a Toronto Police news release.
Hunt is seen in a viral video clip viciously assaulting pro-life leader Marie-Claire Bissonnette on September 30 after she confronted him for allegedly vandalizing pro-life signs. Bissonnette has since asked the public to pray for Hunt since he is “also loved by the Father.”
This apparently isn’t the first time Hunt has assaulted a pro-life woman before. The Toronto Police press release further alleges that Hunt pushed a female pro-life demonstrator into a pole in August:
On Thursday, August 2, 2018, at approximately 12 p.m., officers responded to a call for an Assault in the Dufferin Street and Dundas Street West
– there was a group of people protesting against abortion
– they were approached by a man on a bicycle
– he tried to grab one of their signs
– he then pushed a woman into a pole
– he fled the scene
The video below captures the alleged August assault, for which he has been charged.
Along with facing his new legal woes, Hunt was fired from his job at a Toronto hair salon immediately following the assault against Bissonnette.
“It has been brought to our attention that Jordan has been caught on camera assaulting an innocent bystander at a pro life rally,” wrote Noble Studio 101 Hair Studio in a social media post. “We don’t condone his actions and he has been let go. We believe that everyone has a right to an opinion and the right to voice their opinion without fear of physical violence.”
