Actor Danny Trejo Sparks Brawl at Fourth of July Parade a Day After Backing Biden

Share

Actor Danny Trejo’s Fourth of July celebration took a wild turn at the Sunland-Tujunga Independence Day Parade in Los Angeles when the “Machete” star, known for his tough-guy roles, found himself in the midst of a chaotic brawl that involved physical violence, a thrown lawn chair, and a lot of water.

Trejo, 80, who announced over social media the day before, that he is supporting President Joe Biden in his re-election bid, was riding in the passenger’s side of a vintage convertible and participating in the local parade when someone in the crowd hurled a water balloon at him.

It is unclear whether politics influenced the incident.

According to video footage obtained by TMZ, Trejo could be seen exiting the vehicle and chasing down the man he believed to be the culprit.



Trejo angrily walked through a group of people and up to one of the tents on a sidewalk where the suspect was located, punching him and causing water to splash everywhere.

The person then attempted to punch Trejo back but missed, sending Trejo to the ground. The assailant then turned his attention to another man, delivering a punch to his face that knocked him to the ground.

Did you attend any Independence Day events?

At one point, Trejo grabbed a lawn chair and threw it.

“This parade is like a thing where you throw water balloons back and forth at each other,” witness Stanley Herrarte, who captured the incident on his cell phone, told KABC-TV.

“The reason why Danny was so infuriated was because usually people don’t throw water balloons at fancy cars when they come by,” Herrarte added.

The violent brawl lasted for nearly 10 minutes before police arrived and dispersed the crowd.

No arrests were made.

In a video interview with TMZ after the event, Trejo said he only got out of the car and attacked the aggressor because someone yelled the water balloon contained acid.



“I’m so sad that I behaved the way I behaved,” Trejo said, adding, “I don’t think I would have even gotten out of the car if somebody hadn’t yelled, ‘It’s acid.'”

Later in the interview, Trejo added, “It was sad, man. I would be embarrassed, I would be embarrassed if I attacked an 80-year-old man, and he’s still talking and laughing.”

Trejo, while known for his roles portraying villains and tough guys, has expanded his horizons, venturing into the food industry with his successful chain of restaurants, Trejo’s Tacos, which was established in 2016.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor

The Western Journal
