It’s not every day that an NBA mascot gets attacked at an amusement park. (Chicago Sun-Times)
Benny the Bull was attacked Wednesday during a promotional event at an amusement park.
The Bulls’ mascot was escorting a group of kids at Odyssey Fun World in Tinley Park. As the group crossed a foot bridge, a man and woman approached from the opposite direction. The mascot began dancing in front of the couple, police said. The man made threatening remarks to Benny and then pushed him, causing the mascot to lose his balance and fall to the ground, police said.
Just two days earlier, two Six Flags Great America employees were ejected from the Gurnee theme park after allegedly attacking a female employee dressed as Porky Pig.
Benny the Bull and Porky Pig should be ashamed of themselves. I know for a fact that no Celtics mascot would ever get his ass kicked by attackers – Lucky really knows how to throw hands.
