82-year-old Gene Hackman still has some fire left in him as he slapped a homeless guy outside a New Mexico restaurant on Tuesday. Not without good reason however. Hackman and his wife were leaving a Santa Fe restaurant when a homeless guy named Bruce Becker accosted them. The situation escalated to the point where Becker called Hackman’s wife a “c*nt.”
Gene ended up slapping the guy across the face for the comment. Becker cried to the cops who took a report but didn’t charge him with anything determining the slap was in self-defense. It’s been said that if slapping the homeless was a sport, Gene would win gold.
