Was a HuffPo writer kicked out of a ‘Hating Breitbart’ screening for heckling? Update: Yes, he was

A left-wing heckler was reportedly removed from a Friday screening of “Hating Breitbart” in Arlington, Va.

This Twitter user was at the Regal theater.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the heckler may be Ryan Clayton, a progressive activist and Huffington Post writer who appears in Andrew Marcus’ documentary.

Was Clayton the heckler shouting about Andrew Breitbart and cocaine? At the 2011 Netroots Nation conference, he asked Breitbart, “Have you kicked the cocaine habit?”

Twitchy will monitor this developing news and update as more information becomes available.

Update:

A conservative moviegoer believes the heckler was indeed Ryan Clayton.

Here’s her account from the screening:

Update:

Clayton was indeed the heckler.

A YouTube video shows Clayton being escorted from the theater. Clayton had approached patrons with a “pop quiz” about Andrew Breitbart and was told by security, “You can pop quiz outside.”
