The man filmed kicking an anti-abortion protestor in Toronto has been fired.

A video released earlier this week shows a group of pro-life protestors at the corner of Bloor and Keele on Sunday, September 30. The group gathered as part of an event called Life Chain.

According to Life Site’s Marie-Claire BissonnetteLife Chain is “an annual event which consists of thousands of pro-life women, men and children standing on over 200 street corners across Canada holding signs.”

It’s a “peaceful and silent protest,” and no abortion victim photography is allowed.

Bissonnette says she was assaulted by a man that afternoon.

In the video, the man is seen “roundhouse-kicking” Bissonnette, and her phone drops to the ground as she asks for someone to call the police.

Since then, photos of the man circulated on social media channels, and he has been identified as Jordan Hunt.

Hunt’s employer also identified him, in a message that states that he has been fired.

“It has been brought to our attention that Jordan has been caught on camera assaulting an innocent bystander at a pro-life rally,” stated hair salon Noble Studio 101. “We don’t condone his actions and he has been let go. We believe that everyone has a right to an opinion and the right to voice their opinion without fear of physical violence.”
