A new video posted on Twitter shows a man wearing a “Proud Boys” shirt flicking a lit cigarette at another man — who then proceeds to physically beat him.
At the start of the video, the man can be seen walking with his girlfriend by a group of other men who criticize him for wearing a Fred Perry polo shirt that is worn by members of the far-right Proud Boys organization.
“Do you realize what his shirt is?” a bearded man yells at the woman as they pass.
The man in the Proud Boys polo shirt then proceeds to throw his lit cigarette at the bearded man, who gets struck directly in the head.
The bearded man then proceeds to fight against the man who flicked the cigarette — and he successfully pulls him to the ground and tears off the offending polo shirt as a crowd of people cheer him on.
Even after having his shirt ripped off, the man comes back and tries once again to punch the bearded man — by onlookers stop him and drag him down the stairs instead.
Watch the video below.

Trump’s new argument: He’s immune from all criminal investigation in new tax return lawsuit
Lawyers for President Trump argue that the president is immune from all criminal investigations in a new federal lawsuit seeking to block New York prosecutors from obtaining his tax returns.
This article first appeared in Salon.
Trump sued his longtime accounting firm Mazars USA and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance on Thursday, after Vance's office subpoenaed the firm to demand eight years of the president’s personal and corporate tax returns.
HBO’s ‘Real Time’ panel provides roadmap for Democrats to get DNI’s Ukraine report and speed-up impeachment
During the "Overtime" segment of HBO's "Real Time," Bill Maher and his guests took up the problems the Democrats are having acquiring Donald Trump'stax returns as well as other documents they need if they are going to impeach the president.
Responding to a question over whether the state of New York will indict the president, the conversation turned to prosecutors seeking Trump's taxes.
According to presidential historian Tim Naftali, there is precedent allowing the acquisition.
"Is it really that hard to get somebody's frigging, f*cking taxes? " host Bill Maher asked.
"Actually, there is a precedent," Naftali explained. "If the House started on the impeachment hearings, they could act on the precedent of 1974, where Nixon's taxes were turned over to the impeachment committee. So there is a precedent, but they have to make the decision that they are having an impeachment inquiry."
Trump slams ‘partisan’ whistleblower, Biden pushes back
US President Donald Trump on Friday vigorously rejected a whistleblower's claim of wrongdoing, amid reports he used a call with Ukraine's president to pressure him to investigate the son of Trump's Democratic rival Joe Biden.
The whistleblower's secret complaint has triggered a tense showdown between Congress, whose Democratic leaders are demanding to review the complaint, and the executive branch which has barred them from doing so.
It has also raised concerns Trump sought to strong-arm Ukraine into providing damaging information on the president's possible 2020 challenger, which would represent dangerous foreign meddling in the US election -- similar to the interference blamed on Russia in 2016, when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.
