"Chuck Wow" attacked in Pattaya.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

"Chuck Wow" attacked in Pattaya.

SCREENSHOT: “Chuck Wow” in full narrative, just before being attacked

A North American amateur ‘vlogger’ filming in Walking Street, Pattaya, has ended up annoying the locals and being attacked with his camera rolling.

The video begins with “Chuck Wow” commenting on the body size of a prostitute standing outside a 7-Eleven in a stream-of-thought narration.

His sneering narrative continues and then moves on to secretly film a man who propositions a lady.

Then the filming moves on to a man rummaging through bin bags…

“Oh my god, this is disgusting.”

Some locals decide to stand in his way to disrupt his secret filming. Then a foul-mouthed altercation with an angry motorcycle taxi driver begins. When he once again refuses to stop filming an attack occurs.

Most people in social media say he got what he deserved.

The moustache alone is grounds for a beating let alone the nick.

Nope, the Chuck Wow from TOF is a tubby Brit who works for a shipping company in Phnom Penh. I'd give the name of it but that would be naughty of me.

My friend was jostled and shouted at in SNV by a group of Chinese in a restaurant because they thought he was filming them but was in fact doing a selfie.
They only calmed down when the owner told them what he was doing (as he could see) and they calmed down.

I think it’s very rude (and dangerous in some places) to randomly film people. Some people don’t like it especially when it’s to criticize.

He doesnt have a lick of sense and deserved it. If someone filmed me for 5 or 10 minutes making rude comments I'd approach too, if escalated then fight. I think most here would too.

He obviously likes slagging off strangers, has a superiority complex, and deserved a hiding.

Most Westerners support the right of journalists and vloggers to film in public. Unless they think they are the ones being filmed in public. Then they want to stop the filming and fight whoever is doing it.
