It's Been Two Years Since Arnold Schwarzenegger Was Dropkicked By A Fan

It's Been Two Years Since Arnold Schwarzenegger Was Dropkicked By A Fan

A lot has happened in the meantime, but it's already been two years Arnold Schwarzenegger was booted in the back by a random person whilst he attended an event in South Africa. Let's remind ourselves of that incident by watching the clip below:


How time flies, right?

The strange incident took place back in May 2019 when the then-71-year-old Terminator star was taking time out to snap a couple of photographs with his fans.


Then, a man flew out and punted Arnie right in the back. It's pretty brutal stuff.

Arnold might be well known for his hard-man persona and bodybuilding background, but he's still an older gent, and therefore shouldn't be getting two-footed straight in the back.

It's not on.

Schwarzenegger was judging a skipping competition before the attack happened - and obviously the guy was immediately dragged off.


The former Mr. Universe was thankfully unhurt after the attack, and even tweeted about it in true, cool Arnie style, assuring fans he was fine.

He even said he didn't clock that he had been kicked, although from the video I have no idea how that could feel like merely getting 'jostled'.

He is absolutely hard as nails, isn't he?


All the legend was arsed about was his video, saying he was just glad the 'idiot' responsible didn't ruin the Snapchat selfie he was taking.

An earlier video showed him greeting fans at the multi-sport event Arnold Classic Africa, where fans seemed made up to meet him.

In the clip, the attacker can be heard shouting as he's dragged away, with some reports saying he yells: "Help me, I need a Lamborghini."


Not a bloody clue what that means, or how drop-kicking Arnold Schwarzenegger in the back will help to achieve it - but there we go.

The Arnold Sport Festival is a yearly event, which hosts a variety of different sports festivals across six continents each year.

The Arnold Classic Africa, where the incident happened, takes place in Johannesburg every May... although that probably doesn't include last year, come to think of it.

All events feature a load of pro bodybuilding related competitions (obvs) - including amateur bodybuilding, strength and combat sports.
