Airport Brawl Erupts, This Well-Known Pop Star Was Just Arrested

For all of the good that comes out of social media, there’s also a darker side that gets brushed under the carpet far too often. That darker side includes users that become victimized and attacked by scores of people with a seemingly never-ending stream of posts. In extreme cases, the target of the abuse can find themselves threatened and bullied to the point that their lives are severely impacted. That’s what’s going on right now with a woman named Ana Becerra, who was involved in an altercation with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson at LAX.

As the Daily Mail shares, the dustup started when Becerra pulled out her phone to record Tomlinson, who was in the midst of arguing with a photographer that was taking pictures of the star and his girlfriend, Eleanor. It seems that Eleanor wasn’t too pleased with Becerra’s recording of the incident, so she went ahead and confronted the woman. A scuffle ensued, and Becerra claimed she was hit by the star during the fracas. Fans of the star quickly jumped to his defense on social media.

“Ana and her family have received more than 2,000 threatening messages on social media and she’s trying to find a decent lawyer,” according to a friend of Becerra.

To make the whole thing even more confusing, it appears that Becerra’s social media profile may have been hacked by trolls. There have been a slew of posts coming out, but it’s unclear if they are the real deal or the product of trolls with way too much time on their hands.

“I'm a b***h for getting hit by a celebrity? Literally, I hit my head on the ground a little bit harder I could have an cerebral haemorrhage,” read one post.

It sounds like this matter will take a whole lot of sorting out. In the meantime, Tomlinson’s lawyer released a statement on the incident.

“The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport this morning. This is not the first or last time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity. While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense,” said Martin Singer.
