Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were walking toward their SUV in New York City when fans quickly started to hover around them trying to get selfies. One of the fans in the group appeared to get too close to Rita, causing her to nearly trip.
The video was taken outside a restaurant in New York City, Hanks, 65, and Wilson, 65, are seen walking toward their SUV when one of the fans gets too close to Rita causing her to nearly trip. The video quickly went viral.
Rita could be heard in the video telling the crowd to “stop it!” as she lost her footing.
“Back the f**k off!” he said, adding, “Knocking over my wife?” He turned around and stepped inside a waiting car, as several people off-camera apologized to him.
The majority of comments have been in support of Tom’s reaction to the group.
Watching those people aggravate @tomhanks and his wife in that video truly sickens me . Remember they are not celebrities they are human beings ….respect them . Be kind.

I would probably cry if I got yelled at by Tom Hanks. I’m repeating this clip to see who was at fault. You shouldn’t bother celebrities or be that close to them for a nonconsensual selfie. I was right behind Josh Gad at Disneyland, but he was with his family so I let him be. https://t.co/eOPwLH2x1v
