Yesterday, Glenn shared his story about the hostile environment he and his family experienced while attending movie night in Bryant Park Monday evening.
While trying to catch a showing of Hitchock’s The 39 Steps, fellow moviegoers were anything but friendly, shouting hateful messages and even kicking a glass of wine on Glenn’s wife’s back.
Today, we hear from the other side. Lindsey Piscitell, a young woman who says she was sitting behind Glenn and his family, has written a response letter to New York Magazine about the incident. Glenn chose to read her response on radio this morning.
“Just a quick FYI -saw your article on Mr. Beck and his numerous FALSE claims about the way that he was treated at Bryant Park last night,” Piscitell wrote. “Myself and several of my friends were seated immediately behind Mr. Beck & co (have pictures) and I can tell you that while the crowd was certainly not *thrilled* that he had shown up, his family was left completely alone, and for the most part he was too.”
Piscitell criticizes Glenn’s security detail for being “unnecessarily prickly with the crowd,” and asserts that though her friend did spill half a glass of wine on Glenn’s wife, it was a “complete and utter accident.”
That’s rather ironic because later that evening Piscitell tweeted an explicit message saying that she was seated near Glenn, to which one of her followers, Marissa Barker, responded, “Ew, can you ‘accidently’ spill something on him? Or ‘accidently’ kick him in the mouth?” (See the evidence here)
Well doesn’t that sound loving and rather timely?
“It's amazing how she would be swearing, that's the tolerant part she was talking about,” Stu said. “And then the odds that one of her 40 followers would suggest exactly what would happen. I mean, it's a billion to one that that would occur. But it did. And we found out about it.”
Piscitell’s letter ends with her expressing her frustrations that Glenn offered his love and forgiveness on yesterday’s radio program. She wrote, “I‘m sure it’s unnecessary to point out the hypocrisy in Glen’s statements that we were being hateful. I can assure him that we don’t need his sympathy.”
Regardless of whether or not Piscitell wants Glenn’s sympathy, she is still going to get his love. “You're still going to get my prayers because I still love you,” Glenn said. “I just don't love your actions. But I still love you. And I believe you're terribly misguided. But the only real truth is love. Not hate.”
