Asshole Surgeon

This takes the cake. Robert Rey, M.D., the ridiculous plastic surgeon of Doctor 90210, positively crowed about restraining an unruly octogenarian on a plane.

"When you get a black belt, at that stage your brain just clicks into action," the doctor said. "I restrained this gentleman in a very aggressive way without hurting him."

Maybe I'm being too harsh because a.)I'm actually a surgeon in a specialty that matters, and b.)I have a background in non-poser martial arts. Maybe it's because I know some of his erstwhile co-residents at Mayo who allege he was kicked out of residency once. Why couldn't he have said, like a real doctor would have, "we had an elderly person who was confused and I assisted in restraining him," i.e., placing a humane medical face on the event rather than a pathetic attempt to pose as some kind of badass. An act daily carried out in nursing homes across America is converted into farce by this stupid preening poser.

Is he from Florida? I have decided that there is something wrong with the water down there -
