    Patrons assaulted by group of men angry that the event featured drinking during Ramadan

    Radiohead held a worldwide streaming event to celebrate A Moon Shaped Pool’s physical release today. Record stores all over the world participated, but an unfortunate incident unfolded at one shop in Instanbul. According to Turkish news, patrons in record store Velvet Indieground were attacked by a group of men who were angry that patrons were drinking alcohol and playing music during Ramadan. Things reportedly turned violent, and a Periscope video has surfaced in which you can hear a commotion outside the store. You cannot see much of the altercation but there are some chilling sounds and reactions. A man claiming to be a host of the event and owner of the Periscope account where the video was posted responded in a thread on Reddit, saying:

    I was one of the hosts. I am the person that’s speaking in that video. I am the owner of that periscope account. They were determined to kill us. We were beaten by more than 20 men with pipes in their hands, beer bottles were broken on our heads. I don’t even know how we made it out. I will share the details later guys, just hoping that no one will die.

    So, a 60 year old man starts slapping young men on in the face and on the ass and they run like a bunch of pussies. I'd a started whooping his ass.

    I'm thinking you're right.

    When I run for president, you're on the team.
