American actor Geoffrey Giuliano, who was filmed last week launching a bizarre rant at a fellow shopper in Big C Pattaya has posted a video on social media hitting out at coverage of the incident.
The original incident, which took place last Thursday saw Mr Giuliano approach a man who was behind him in the ‘10 items or less’ queue, after being questioned about why he was putting “about 20 items” through the checkout.
An argument ensued and Mr Giuliano turned round to the man and declared: “I’m American, I do what I want”.
The video of the incident made headline news both in Thailand and overseas.
In the expletive laden response, which was uploaded by Mr Giuliano on Saturday, the Hollywood star describes coverage of the incident as “nonsense” before describing the man who filmed the bizarre rant as a “French f**k head.”
And that’s just within the first 20 seconds.
Mr Giuliano then goes onto question why “when we’re on the brink of world war three with North Korea” the incident made “front page news” around the world.
“Let me tell you what is not a story,” Mr Giuliano says.
“Me going into the ten item line with fourteen items and some guy sticking his f**king nose into that.”
He then says that what “Donald Trump is doing to the world” and that “virtually anything that is happening in the world” is more important that the incident.
But just as you think Mr Giuliano may have a point, the video takes another bizarre turn as he begins to impersonate the French man who filmed the original incident, mimicking his accent as he gives his version of events.
Mr Giuliano then goes onto say that while he regards himself as only a B or C list actor, he describes himself as an “A list writer” and that his books have made him over $9 million.
He ends the video by talking about the “power of social media” and how an incident filmed in a supermarket in Pattaya can quickly be beamed around the world.
Finally he says, “I’m guilty” and describes the whole incident as “stupid”.
People commenting on social media were far from sympathetic towards Mr Giuliano.
Others said that the video was perhaps Mr Giuliano’s best performance to date.
