A ‘mischievous fan’ drop-kicked Arnold Schwarzenegger

The 'Terminator' star had the perfect response!

Entertainment Desk May 19, 2019

If you need to be reminded why Terminator star Arnold Schwarzengger is a total boss, this is it.

The actor appeared completely unaffected after a man surprised a gym full of people with a flying, two-footed drop kick at his back during a public appearance in Sandton, which is near Johannesburg in South Africa, The Washington Post reported.


But it was the former California governor's response to the random attack that impressed us all.

Schwarzengger was recording a Snapchat video with fans as part of his annual Arnold Classic Africa event when the unidentified assailant ran toward him and threw himself feet-first at the Terminator.

Video shows the 71-year old jolt forward but stay on his feet as the man hits him and falls to the ground, where he was quickly subdued by a security guard.


“I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you." Schwarzenegger tweeted shortly after the attack. "I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

As the feisty culprit was being dragged away by the security guard, the kicker apparently shouted, “Help me! I need a Lamborghini!” repeatedly. A site promoting Johannesburg tourism proudly boasts of the exotic cars of Sandton, which it calls "the richest square mile in Africa."


In another tweet after the attack, Schwarzenegger urged his followers to ignore his assailant and instead “put this spotlight” on the athletes “inspiring all of us to get off the couch,” as the annual event is bringing together 24,000 athletes for three days of competition.

Schwarzenegger says he has no intention of pressing charges against the mischievous fan.
