Jonathan Majors is using his free time for good, having intervened during a brawl between two girls.
On Monday, the “Creed 3” star was grabbing lunch at an In-N-Out restaurant across the street from Hollywood High School. While retrieving his food, he noticed two teenage girls throwing punches at one another on the school grounds as a group of other students gathered around, some of whom were recording with their phones. Majors took matters into his own hands, stepping in between the girls. They continued trying to get at one another as the actor pleaded with them to walk away from the altercation. Eventually, the girls were able to bypass him and continue their beatdown before Majors was able to get the situation under control again and end the violence for good.
Hours after using his muscles for good, TMZ caught up with Majors, who said he didn’t know either girl during the “schoolyard fight.” Still, he hoped that both were okay following their mid-day scrabble. This unexpected sequence of events is the first good press for Majors in months, who continues to face charges for his own alleged brutality. The 34-year-old is accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, in New York City. He has maintained his innocence, even accusing Jabbari of being the aggressor. Majors has pleaded not guilty and is due back in court on Friday.
No school staff ever intervened during the brawl, and it’s unclear if Hollywood High is aware of the situation.
