After a brief pause, the theatergoer responded clearly, “This movie f—ing sucks!” Immediately, the crowd burst out in loud jeers and booing towards the disruptor, while the panel’s shocked moderator replied, “What?”

Though the heckler wasn’t quite finished. As the audience broke out in applause, and he neared the back of the theater, the unruly guest turned to the stage and threw up a middle finger. He proceeded to yell some more, though it was hard to make out.

The audience cheered Campbell’s no-nonsense response and the heckler eventually left. Thankfully the panelists, including Campbell, returned to good humor. One mentioned the classic motto, “Keep Austin weird, right?”
