[Plot Thickens!] The Disneyland Brawl Just Got A Lot More Dramatic As Family Faces Years In Prison For Magic Meltdown

The most magical place in the world is proving that when it comes to your petty drama, Disneyland isn’t having it.

It was just revealed that the three adults who were involved in a dramatic family physical dispute at Disneyland earlier this month could face years in prison.

In case you missed it, the three adults in question were involved in a brutal fight captured on video a few weeks ago at Disneyland. Footage of the event showed a man in a red shirt throwing punches at several different women and men. Now the man in red, identified as Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson, has been charged with five felonies and nine misdemeanors according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

In short, Disney is ready to deliver a one-two punch to violence that threatens peace at its park.

According to the police, Avery allegedly attacked his sister, brother-in-law, and girlfriend at the park.

In doing so, police say, he endangered his child and three other children who were at Disneyland with the family. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says that upon leaving the park, he also allegedly threatened to kill members of his family and attempted to assault a Disneyland employee with his car.

The charges do not stop with Avery however.

Avery’s sister, Andrea Nicole Robinson, 40, was charged with five misdemeanors.

Those charges include four misdemeanor charges of battery which is related to her attack on Avery and his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Andrea’s husband Daman Petrie, 44, is faced with one misdemeanor count of battery. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says that he is being accused of assaulting Avery’s girlfriend by punching her in the face.

If convicted, Avery faces a maximum of seven years and fourth months in state prison. Andrea could get up to two-and-a-half years. while her husband Petrie could face a maximum of six months in jail.

According to KTLA, Avery pled not guilty to all the charges against him. Whether or not his sister and her husband have done the same has yet to be revealed.

If you’ve seen the video, you’ve probably only had the emotional bandwidth to ask this question.

Someone insulted someone’s mother, another mother was thrown to the ground, and it seems like everyone is just going at each other, regardless of gender or relation. It was a sad, and confusing, scene to witness.

The narrative of the story is that they are related, hence the fact that they stayed together despite the fighting.

It doesn’t seem like it’s two separate families defending their own. They seem to be related to each other, which makes the fight exceptionally sad.

If you’re still confused, fear not, the Internet has provided a flow chart.

None of this is confirmed by the family or authorities. We’re all in this mess together. From here on out, the term “we” will be used to describe the collective Internet “we.” We think White Shirt girl, Red Shirt and Black Shirt Girl are all siblings. Their mom is the Mama in the wheelchair.

Red Shirt Guy clearly has the biggest temper of them all, and resorted to physically attacking (what we think is) his sister. Her boyfriend (White Shirt Guy) stepped in to defend her. Then they start dancing around like they’re in a boxing ring. Black Shirt girl tries to intervene to get them to stop fighting. Then White Shirt guy just punches Tan Shirt Girl (Red Shirt’s girlfriend) straight in the nose. Now it’s really getting heated between Red Shirt Guy and White Shirt Guy.

Now Red Shirt Guy is yelling, “I’m ready to go to jail tonight. I’m ready to go to jail.” Then Red Shirt Guy sees White Shirt Guy and starts yelling “fired on my motherf***ing b****, put your hands around my b****!” White Shirt Guy starts retreating, but Red Shirt Guy pulls White Shirt Guy’s girlfriend (also wearing a white shirt) by her hair.

Things start to calm down until Black Shirt Girl tells Red Shirt Guy that his girlfriend (Tan Shirt Girl) hit his Mama.

He turns to his girlfriend saying, “You hit my mama?” Tan shirt tries to explain that it was an accident (it was), but he punches her straight in the face. Then he starts violently pounding on her on the ground while a group of people tries to lift him off her. He pulls her hair along with him. Red Shirt Guy is finally restrained in a chokehold, and then the security finally shows up.

This whole time, the only Disney employee intervening is an older custodian.

Our hearts dropped for fear this older man would be violently attacked but he thankfully wasn’t. There are memes on memes of other Disney employees in costume just standing around.

Other folks are getting philosophical about the many bystanders who did nothing.

Magic Mountain is side-eyeing this whole brawl so hard right now.

Meanwhile, Universal fans are taking the moment to show appreciation for their theme park of choice.

For all the shade amusement park goers throw at each other, we still don’t understand how this mega-fight happened in Toontown.

This one media outlet’s narration has truly tickled The Internet.

This reporter describes the fight with vivid detail. Rewatching the fight with narration that sounds like “but then, he slapped the daylights out of her,” is truly rewarding if you’re into that kind of thing.

The family maintains it never happened.

The family was all released once they all told park authorities that the fight never happened. Once the video footage came out, however, their questionable loyalty didn’t matter.  Orange County prosecutors are currently reviewing the video to determine whether criminal charges will be filed. If they decide to file felony charges, the county district attorney’s office will also assess misdemeanor counts. If they don’t find any grounds for felony charges, the Anaheim city attorney would take over to pursue misdemeanor charges.

A 25-Year-Old Woman Was Murdered And Skinned, Then Mexican Newspapers Published Photos Of Her Body

SkyNews/ Twitter

In Mexico, the recent brutal mutilation and slaying of a 25-year-old woman are spurning conversations about the country’s efforts to prevent femicide and laws that protect victims from the media.

On Sunday, Mexican authorities revealed that they had discovered the body of Ingrid Escamilla.

According to reports, Escamilla was found lifeless with her body skinned and many of her organs missing. At the scene, a 46-year-old man was also discovered alive. His body was covered in bloodstains and he was arrested.

As of this story wasn’t troubling enough, local tabloids and websites managed to bring more tragedy to the victim and her family by splashing leaked graphic photos and videos of the victim’s body. In a terribly crafted headline, one paper by the name of Pasala printed the photos on its front page with the headline “It was Cupid’s fault.” The headline is a reference to the fact that the man found at the scene was Escamilla’s husband.

According to leaked video footage from the arrest scene, Escamilla’s husband admitted to stabbing his wife after a heated argument in which she threatened to kill him. He then claimed to have skinned her body to eliminate evidence.

Mexic City’s mayor, Claudia Sheinbaum, revealed that prosecutors will demand the maximum sentence against the alleged perpetrator.

“Femicide is an absolutely condemnable crime. It is appalling when hatred reaches extremes like in the case of Ingrid Escamilla,” Sheinbaum wrote in a tweet according to CNN. According to reports, Mexico broke records in 2018 when its homicide record reached over 33,000 people that year.

The publication of Escamilla’s mutilated body has sparked discussions regarding the way in which reports about violence against women are handled.

Women’s rights organizations have lambasted the papers that originally published photos of Escamilla’s body and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador also expressed criticism of the media’s response to the brutal slaying.

In a press conference on Thursday, President López Obrador expressed his determination to find and punish anyone responsible for the image leaks. “This is a crime, that needs to be punished, whoever it is,” he stated.
