A group of “seven or eight kids” brutally beat a Fox News meteorologist named Adam Klotz early on Sunday while he was riding the subway in New York City. The incident left him with cuts across his face, black eyes, and bruised ribs.
Klotz, a network employee since 2017, posted two videos on his Instagram account on Sunday morning outlining the altercation and its consequences. He continued by saying that law enforcement had apprehended at least a few of the assailants.
In the first video, Klotz said, “Hear me out, though: you should see the other guy,” while revealing his discoloured face. Oh, please don’t laugh, but my side hurts more than my face.
The weatherman then yelled out “Where are the parents?” and begged them to stop letting their kids “beat up strangers in the middle of the night,” pointing out that the “other guy” was actually “five or six children.”
A few hours later, Klotz posted a second social media video about the altercation, this time with a much more sombre tone.
“I believe that my previous post gave the impression that I wasn’t taking myself seriously. He said, “Like this wasn’t genuine,” as he pointed the camera at the wounds on his face. But without a doubt, after watching the [New York] Giants game at a bar, this older gentleman was harassed by this group of seven or eight teenagers on the metro last night, according to a witness.
“Yo, guys, cut it out,” I yelled. Klotz went on. “Okay, if he doesn’t get it, then you get it,” they decided. And boy, did they give it to me. My ribs have multiple bruises, and they had me on the ground. They scored some hits!
The meteorologist did say that following the attack, the “cops grabbed a couple of these kids” and the individual who had been scared by the gang “got out of their fine.”
According to police sources, Klotz confronted the youths while riding the No. 1 train at around 1:15 a.m. The youngsters leapt off the train at the 18th Street station, and police swiftly detained three of them.
Finally, according to a representative of the New York Police Department, the three teenagers—ages 15 through 17—were immediately discharged from detention.
The NYPD representative added that “juvenile reports were created, and their parents were asked to collect them up.”
“I underwent a couple X-rays. I am OK. “This is all going to repair,” Klotz said in the second video. All is well! You understand what I mean? New York City New York City What a place, ah. The city of New York!
The Daily Beast called Klotz, who declined to respond. An inquiry for comment was not immediately answered by Fox News.
Fox News, based in Manhattan, has used the recent rise in violent crime in New York to criticise Democratic leaders and liberal criminal justice policies and describe the city as a “hellhole.” Even while the network’s overall coverage of crime significantly declined following the midterm elections last year, Fox News has kept a close eye on the “crime crisis” in the nation’s largest city.
Characters on Fox News have also been directly impacted by urban crime. Before the attack on Klotz, the younger brother of Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell was shot and killed in Chicago last summer.
