[VIDEO] Hitchhiker with hatchet saves woman from racist, Jesus-impersonator

A hitchhiker turned into a hero earlier this week when he wielded his hatchet on a Jesus impersonator who was allegedly attempting to mow down a man with his car because the man was black.

Say what?!

According to KMPH FOX 26, a hitchhiker named Kai (he apparently doesn’t have a last name) was sitting in the passenger seat near a gas station in Fresno, CA when the driver intentionally drove the car straight toward a black Pacific Gas and Electric employee.

Kai told KMPH that the man turned to him and said, “You know what? I’ve come to realize that I’m Jesus Christ and I can do anything I f***ing want to,” before gunning his car straight into the PG&E worker. But the story doesn’t end there.

After two women witnessed the incident, they immediately darted over to help.

“The guy just went crazy and was trying to pull the guy from underneath the car and the truck, and then he gets in his car and tries to move the car in that… and we weren’t going to let him do it,” one of the women, Tonya Baker, told KMPH. “He just kept saying he was Jesus Christ and he’s going to save all of us… but we have to get — he used the n-word, meaning the black people… and we need to get them off the earth.”

The driver then turned on Baker after she came to help and allegedly attempted to murder her too. But Kai came to the rescue–with his hatchet.

“Like a guy that big can snap a woman’s neck like a pencil stick,” Kai told KMPH. “So I f***ing ran up behind him with a hatchet — smash, smash, smash!”

The driver is still alive and is now in custody with the police. The PG&E worker also miraculously survived and was taken to the hospital to undergo surgery for non-life threatening injuries.

Before sharing his heroic tale with KMPH, Kai also decided to give a nice PSA.

“No matter what you’ve done, you deserve respect,” he said in an extended, profanity-laced interview found on Buzzfeed.com, “Even if you make mistakes, you lovable. And it doesn’t matter your looks, skills, or age, your size or anything — you’re worthwhile. No one can ever take that away from you.”

Thanks for the pep talk Kai!

Kai also said the driver was “f***in’ kooked out, man.”

Do yourself a favor and watch the video.

Since the video has gone viral, Kai remains ambivalent to his new fame.

In a follow-up interview with KPMH, he said to all of his new fans, “I don’t own you… Please don’t be obsessed.” To his new international friends, Kai says, “Namaste…that means I salute the divinity in you in English.”

Of course it didn’t take long for The Gregory Brothers (a.k.a. Schmoyoho) to stumble upon this internet gold. Kai’s interview has already been songified (warning: language). The chorus? “SMASH! SMASH! SMASH!”

Now, Kai can join Madonna and Prince and the many other singers who are so awesome that they need no last name.

 

Watch Kai’s one-hit wonder below.

 

 

Also, did we mention he has a sweet tattoo that covers his entire back?

    The original story in its unedited version was better, I have seen video altered by 10 year olds better. Pretty lame that you would ruin the entire story of a hero with that bullshit. Journalist you’re not.
