Danny Trejo Fires Back After Fourth of July Parade Brawl: “I Stand Against Bullies”


Danny Trejo speaks out after a Fourth of July Parade brawl that he took part in on Thursday.

He said, “It is sad that someone can wake up and then go down to ruin something else for everyone else.”

“I am the protector.” “I will always protect my friends and I did that,” he said.

A video uploaded on Facebook shows the 80-year-old actor pushing and shoveling through a crowd at a parade near Los Angeles, Sunland-Tujunga.

We also obtained a video showing Trejo confronting a group of people after being hit with water bottles and water balloons.

The Sunland Tujunga Rotary Club invited Trejo, who was riding in one of their classic low-rider vehicles, to take part in the parade. Trejo stated that everything went well, “and then, BAM! All of a sudden, our car was hit by a balloon.”

Trejo claimed he got out because “someone yelled that it was acid. I thought they had messed Tony’s vehicle up.” He also said there was a smell of chlorine.

“Someone yelled ‘It is acid!’ and I panicked. I got out of my car to look, and then a ball hit me. Then I saw the man throwing it,” he continued.

“I hate bullying, and that is what bullies do,” the “Machete'” star said. They were cowards. “I did it in the ’50s and ’60s. I still do it at 80!”

Trejo’s representative did not respond to our comment request immediately.

Mario Castillo was riding in the low-rider that was behind Trejo, and he felt like they were targeted racially.

We didn’t come to cause trouble. We were only confronting those who were throwing balloons. Castillo claimed that it was a man in his forties with tattoos and a skinhead.

Castillo’s eye was visibly bruised in the interview.

In a video that the outlet obtained, Trejo and Castillo can be seen being knocked down.

“He didn’t seem hurt, I think he was upset,” said Arnie Abramiam who recorded the incident with his cell phone camera. “He was angry and used anger as a mask to hide his pain, but at the same, I think his blood was boiling.”

“I’m sorry to Danny. I know you are a good person.” “You’re a very humble man,” he said. “Thank you for coming to our parade on the 4th of July. ” “I’m sorry. On behalf of our community, we love you, appreciate you, and thank you.”
