Bad Santa (2003)

Question: Here's something I've never understood. Who is that guy that attacks Willie in the parking lot near the start of the film? The guy that says "I am not gay". What the hell is he talking about? Then calls him "assclown". Who was that guy and why did he attack Willie for no apparent reason?

Carl Missouri

Answer: My guess is that when he was a child, he was molested by a man dressed as Santa Claus, and ever since then he has been holding a grudge against people dressed as Santa Claus. You can see him staring angrily at Willie in the bar even before Willie notices him.

Chosen answer: In the bar scene that immediately precedes this one, this same guy caught Willie accidentally staring at him. As Willie was staring, it stands to reason the guy thought we was 'coming onto' him.
