CUBA GOODING JUNIOR: Saves Burning Man
Written by KingCnote on September 8, 2020
Cuba Gooding Junior come to the rescue of a man who caught on fire at a Hamptons party over Labor Day weekend.
According to Page Six, the actor was with “girlfriend Claudine De Niro at a ‘socially distanced Shabbat dinner’ at the Bridgehampton home of a tech CEO…when the host of the bash, ‘inadvertently set himself on fire.’” Cuba then “jumped into action hero mode and doused him with water in front of frightened guests, who applauded once it was clear the guy was OK.”
A rep for Gooding confirmed the incident, saying, “The back of the gentleman’s shirt ignited into flames from a candle that he unknowingly leaned back into while the rabbi was giving the Shabbat prayer. The man started panicking and flailing his arms, and guests backed away from the victim — except for Cuba, who ran to the gentleman and doused the flames completely.”
Cuba is also facing a criminal trial on misdemeanor sexual abuse and forcible touching charges.
