Glenn Beck Tearfully Recounts ‘Hostile Situation’ During Bryant Park Movie Night

On his radio show today, Glenn Beck spent 12 minutes talking about his and his family’s experience last night at New York’s Bryant Park, which screens movies on Monday nights during the summer.

It was his adult daughter’s idea to attend the screening of Alfred Hitchcock‘s “The 39 Steps.” And it didn’t take long for the packed crowd to recognize Beck. “Somebody kicked a cup of wine intentionally onto my wife’s back so she was completely wet, our blanket was wet.” Beck later heard one guy shout, “We hate conservatives here.”

Still, Beck and his family sat through the movie, a move his security detail questioned today. “I have a right to enjoy a movie with my family in a park,” he said.

“I apologize to anyone who had their movie experience wrecked because of the people that found it so necessary to spew hatred.”

Beck has sold his Connecticut home and in April announced that he’d be leaving New York. Beck has three more episodes of his Fox News show.
