Sahra Wagenknecht Pie in Face

Video: German Politician Gets Pied Over Refugee Stance

Shoving a pie in the face of a celebrity or politician isn’t exactly an original idea, but that didn’t stop a man claiming to be a member of the “Anti-fascist Initiative, pies against the enemies of mankind,” from hitting a member of the German far-left Linke party with a chocolate cream pie during the opening speech of a party event.

Sahra Wagenknecht was the target of the attack after recently advocating for a limit to be placed on the number of refugees Germany should allow – a stance her own party has tried to distance itself from.

Security quickly removed the man, who left with no resistance, while the entire event was captured on camera, so if you enjoy a good pie in the face video, today is your lucky day.
