– Fan: “He apologized to me and worried.”
– Gigliotti: “Like for a second he worried, ha. At first, when I watch the video, I was waiting for the one with the flare (the one who throws it) to fall. It goes by fast and I don’t pay attention to you. I see that the one with the flare was leaning on a flag and that another one is going up. I said, ‘No, they kill each other. These fall into the water. Nothing happened. I say: what happened here? I look at it again and see that you’re clutching your head. Something happened here. And the phone was there, heh”.
