What an embarrassment. Fighting over a packet of frozen phad Thai at a fancy Trader Joe’s? Stuff like this makes me wonder if our species is really meant to make it past the next 50 years or so. Get some goddamn dignity, people, if you have any hope of keeping the human race from being squashed under the weight of our collective assholery!
A Manhattan judge yesterday took only 15 minutes to acquit opera singer Marcella Caprario of all charges in a wacky, diva-on-doctor slapdown over a frozen vegan pad-Thai dinner at a crowded Upper West Side Trader Joes.
The verdict, by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge ShawnDya Simpson, means prosecutors failed to prove the mezzo soprano intended to cause injury when she slapped family practitioner and TV talking head Dr. Catherine London in the face during an argument in the frozen-food aisle in January.
The frosty fracas — so New York-kooky that it was covered in both local and national media after The Post broke the story exclusively — was sparked when the doctors 13-year-old son got between Caprarios husband and the store-brand frozen vegan pad-Thai dinners, Caprarios favorite.
