The man who shouted Heil Hitler, heil Trump at a Baltimore performance of Fiddler on the Roof apologized Friday for his outburst, saying he chose the wrong words when he was attempting to compare President Donald Trump to the Nazi leader.
Anthony M. Derlunas II, 58, said the play, which tells the story of a Jewish family facing persecution in tsarist Russia, reminded him of Trumps immigration policies. His comparison came out wrong and was beyond a mistake he said during an interview at his home in Joppa.
Instantly it was like, Oh my God, what did you do? said Derlunas, who acknowledged he had been drinking heavily before the show. The thing that I cant stand is Trump spreading hatred, and what did I do? I spread hatred.
Derlunas outburst came during the intermission of the show at the Hippodrome Theatre on Wednesday evening. He was escorted from the theaters balcony by security, and police issued him a stop ticket less serious than a citation.
Police spokesman Matt Jablow said his words were protected by the First Amendment.

Let me guess. He’s really not anti-semitic, right?
whoa....this outburst was reported in some places as coming from a Pres. Trump supporter...
What an idiot.
Yelling fire in crowded theatre, crime, yelling Heil Hitler in crowded theatre protected....Got it.
Has to be a Democrat.
Pretend it was an accident. He’ll be accepting praise from the other Democrat radicals.
Has he started a GoFundMe yet?
That was probably his intent.
Funny how he assumes saying he "hates Trump" will get him off the hook.
Sad part is, it probably will.
Says the Brown Shirt.
Just be quiet about it. You can’t take that experience back.
You did say it. No need to keep rehashing the topic for additional attention.
One is pure idiocy. Plus, why would someone who really hated Jews watch a musical that humanizes them?
Has the BS paper apologized for saying it was a pro-Trump remark and a pro-Trump salute?
He’s not really on the hook. Police gave him a warning and he was thrown out of the show. That’s it.
So Anthony M. Derlunas II wet his pants.
People are just freaking out these days.
They’re either shooting people in mass, beating others, preventing Conservatives from speaking, starting incidents in theaters and restaurants...
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think one man was pulling all the strings and trying to destroy the private social time of every citizen.
Reported IN EVERY PLACE, that he was a Trump supporter. I HATE THE PRESS, INCLUDING FOX NEWS!
Neither part of the remark was germane to the subject matter of the play. I guess that doesnt really matter for your typical self righteous libtard ahole
