NYC Guy Supports Women's March Marchers With Flowers
If you scrolled down your Insta feed during the Women's March this weekend, there's a chance you might have come across a video of this feminist stud of a guy throwing flowers into a crowd of people participating in the march in NYC.
That stud has a name, and his name is Thomas "Tommy" Keane.
This past Saturday, Tommy supported marchers in NYC by throwing six dozen flowers into the crowd. And this morning, Elite Daily talked to him about his once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Tommy was walking over to his buddy's place to hang out before meeting his mom and sister for dinner (they weren't marching). On his way, he made a pitstop at the store to grab some "beers for his boys and some flowers to take to dinner for his mom" and sister.
That's when it hit him. He told Elite Daily,
Upon checkout, I realized that my mother and sister were not the only ones who deserved flowers, especially on a day like Saturday, so I decided to buy a whole bunch of flowers and hand them out to all the ladies who were patiently waiting in line and in the crowd.
Unfortunately, the whole handing-them-out-to-ladies-waiting-in-line idea wasn't quite practical. "The crowd was far too dense, and walking through everyone seemed a little rude and impractical," he explained. He had to come up with a Plan B.
That's when he remembered that his buddy's place has a balcony. He decided "that it would probably be easier, and much more fun, to toss the flowers off the balcony to all those below who were standing up for what they believe in."
And that's exactly what he did.
Here's a video of Tommy his friend took from inside of the apartment:
Needless to say, the crowd loved him.
They loved him a lot.
And he loved them right back.
Tommy said, "I wasn't trying to send a message or make it about me. I just did it to show my support, to provide some energy and enthusiasm and to hopefully make a few ladies laugh or crack a smile."
I think it's safe to say he definitely managed to accomplish his goal. And hopefully, he made you smile, too.
And for all you ladies who were out marching on Saturday, Tommy has a message: "You're beautiful, and Saturday was a day that I will not soon forget. Thank you."
