Man Literally Murdered For Chewing Popcorn Too Loudly

Tuesday, February 22 by

In news that might make you rethink your plans for a summer trip to Latvia, a moviegoer during a Latvian showing of Black Swan was shot and killed for chewing his popcorn too loudly. According to reports, a 27 year-old man shot a 42 year-old during the credits of a Saturday night showing of Darren Aronofsky‘s Oscar-nominated film, and he later died from the gunshot wounds.

This is why I’ve always advocated less-chewy popcorn in movie theaters. That crunching sound can drive some people crazy. How many more people, popcorn makers of the world? How many more people have to die? (via The Hollywood Reporter)
