WATCH THIS: Guy Gets Punched In The Face By Street Performer...Did He Deserve It?

HUFFINGTON POST - Now, normally we wouldn't condone violence.

And yet, and yet...

We've often admired the patience of street performers. Especially human statues. So can you really blame them when they've just had one nose-tweak too many, and finally snap?

Just take a look at what happened when "a douche bag" (YouTuber oathyRICH's words, not ours) annoyed one such performer on Cavill Avenue in Surfers Paradise, Queensland.

Watch and learn. And don't even think about sticking your finger in a human statue's ear.

Did he deserve to get punched in the face?
