An unnamed festival goer fearlessly gave shooter Stephen Paddock, 64, a piece of his mind in the midst of the horrifying incident that took place at Route 91 Harvest Festival last Sunday October 1st. The video above shows attendees ducking for cover while the man with his beer in hand, turns to face the shots coming from Mandalay Bay hotel and blatantly holds up his middle finger.
The internet was quick to give this man recognition.
This guy held his beer while sending the terrorist a clear message. I think I like this guy. https://t.co/TmGI3usuke

The mass shooting took the lives of over 50 people and injured over 500. While the careless act may not have been the safest move, the man finally crouched down with the rest of the crowd. We hope this man is ok.
Law enforcement officials stated the shooter, Paddock later took his own life after the incident.
