Hairstylist who kicked a pro-lifer now facing 16 charges

Remember this guy? Last week he made news when video of him delivering a kick to a pro-life protester went viral. Here’s the clip in case you missed it:


This pathetic dork’s name is Jordan Hunt. Over the weekend, Toronto police revealed he has been arrested and is facing 16 charges, 15 connected to this incident and one additional assault charge for a previous incident involving pro-lifers back in August.

On Saturday, October 6, 2018, Jordan Hunt, 26, of Toronto, surrendered to police. He is charged with:

1. Eight counts of Assault
2. Seven counts of Mischief Under $5000

The woman Hunt kicked is named Marie-Claire Bissonnette. She’s a leader with her pro-life group which is why she was there that day along with about 70 other pro-lifers. She described what happened to the Toronto Sun:

“He kicked me in the shoulder, my phone went flying,” Bissonnette told the Sun on Thursday. “I start shouting for someone to call police and before he runs away, he goes up to me and I had a ribbon on my jacket indicating the leader, he tore it off my chest.”…

Bissonnette plans to press charges when an arrest is made.

“It’s not the first time I’ve experienced physical aggression from people who disagree with our message,” she said.

“I don’t think it’s acceptable to show any physical violence to anyone who disagrees with you. The perpetrator should know that.”


That sounds reasonable to me. This guy might benefit from a little jail time until he figures out that assaulting women in the street is not a great way to be a feminist. He won’t even have to worry about missing work. Even before he was arrested, the hair salon he worked at announced on social media that he had been fired.

After the video above went viral, Bissonette gave an interview to a U.S. radio station in which she described the entire sequence of events that day. Hunt allegedly approached the group with permanent markers and started scribbling on the pro-lifer’s signs. When they shielded their signs he started writing on people’s jackets instead. That’s where the video above picks up. Here’s the interview with Bissonette:
