On October 3rd, the man who had been captured on video the previous day roundhouse-kicking a pro-life woman at a rally has been successfully identified as Jordan Hunt, and has lost his contract job at Noble Studio 101 hair salon as a result.
"The shocking 46-second clip by Marie-Claire Bissonnette, youth coordinator with Campaign Life Coalition, went viral after it was published on LifeSiteNews Tuesday, reaching number 8 on YouTube on Wednesday, with over 500,000 views as of publication, and sparking widespread discussion on social media.
Noble Studio 101 posted a statement on Instagram Wednesday that 'it has been brought to our attention that Jordan Hunt has been caught on camera assaulting an innocent bystander at a pro-life rally. We don’t condone his actions and he has been let go.'"
When contacted by LifeSiteNews, a representative from the salon replied:
“We’re four strong women here,” she said. “We don’t condone any kind of violence… Everybody has their own opinion and different ways of thinking, but violence is not the answer. He won’t be stepping his foot through the door again.”
As MRCTV reported yesterday, during the remarkably subdued Life Chain event where pro-life activists quietly hold non-graphic signs on street corners across Canada, Hunt approached one such demonstration and began vandalizing their posters and jackets. When he was confronted by Bissonette with her camera phone, he quickly roundhouse-kicked her in the shoulder, knocking the phone from her hand.
Bissonette says she intends to press charges, yet urges people to pray for Hunt to come to a moral redemption.
