Sidney Chan is accused of kicking Stephen Kent in the face after Kent called him a racial slur.
All right. As a matter of principle, I'm going to emphasize that I can't condone violence. But I'm also not going to be terribly disappointed by the news that a guy got kicked in the face after calling someone a "chink."
In London, 20-year-old Sidney Chan is accused of kicking Stephen Kent in the face — twice — during a fight that broke out after Kent called him a "chink" while they were leaving a student bar at Imperial College.
Prosecutors say the altercation was set off when Chan "provoked" Kent by making a comment about his "1980s-style mullet haircut." (I am absolutely dead serious.) But Chan denies making fun of the mullet. He says Kent was the real aggressor, calling him a "chink" before charging at him and throwing punches.
"I never said anything about his hair," Chan said at trial. "He started throwing punches at me after he fell to the ground after I had pushed him. He quickly got back up and he charged at my group and started throwing punches at me."
