ATLANTIC CITY – A video that appears to show two teens brawling on an Atlantic City street corner before a bystander approaches to stop the fight has drawn millions of views since it was posted Monday.
The 4-minute video posted on Facebook was recorded at the intersection of Mc Kinley and North Indiana avenues, near the Atlantic City Convention Center, though the date of the incident was not listed.
When the man approaches to stop the brawl, he gives the bystanders an earful for watching, recording and egging on the fight. Then he turns his attention to the teens, reminding them that they’re “almost men” and urging them to resolve their conflict.
The video has been viewed more than 14 million times and has been shared a half-million times by Tuesday morning.
**Warning: The following video contains explicit language.**
“You all gotta shake hands. You gotta do that,” the man says on the video. “You all don’t shake hands, I’m not leaving.”
Hundreds of people have been commenting, supporting the stranger for breaking up the fight.
NJ Advance Media reached out to the person who posted the video, but did not immediately hear back.
