He wrote on Twitter “Had a not great altercation at the end of my book event in Philly. Look, I’m trying to have a real moment with my audience. If you come to my events and harass me or make me or my fans uncomfortable, there’s no chance in hell I’m going to sign for you. Don’t cross that line.”

The actor also shared a blurry picture of a car without a license plate, that belonged to the autograph seekers, and said that he is going to press charges against them. He wrote, “Best photo that I could get but these professional autograph seekers followed us out of the Philly event and then threw soda on our window. They then ran to their car to remove the front license plate so we couldn’t ID them. Thankfully we had someone at the event venue documenting so we will get them and file a report with authorities. Obviously, everyone is fine but we’re just a bit shook that this could happen.”

Simu Liu doesn’t normally have a problem with signing something, but he stated that these autograph seekers were making his fans at the event uncomfortable and he wasn’t “rewarding that behavior.” These types of people take autographs which they could, in turn, sell for a profit. Fortunately, someone documented the entire event so the actor will be able to file a report with authorities.
