Actor is currently appearing in a play in London's West End
Jesse Eisenberg briefly clashed with anti-gay protesters at Pride in London yesterday (June 25).
The Social Network actor was wheeling his bicycle through central London when he spotted protesters brandishing placards which contained slogans like “Abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul” and “whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”.
After shaking his head at the protesters, one of the anti-gay campaigners asked Eisenberg, “Is your mind closed?”
“Is my mind closed?” Eisenberg replied before walking off. “Dude, that’s so f****d up.” Watch footage of the incident below.
Eisenberg, who co-starred as Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and will soon return to cinema screens in Now You See Me 2, is currently appearing in a play in London’s West End. Eisenberg also wrote the play, which is titled The Spoils and runs at the Trafalgar Studios theatre until August 13, having debuted there at the end of May.
Pride in London drew thousands of LGBT people and allies to central London yesterday for a solidarity parade led by Absolutely Fabulous stars Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley and a programme of entertainment at Trafalgar Square.
