On April 21, it was reported that American comedian and TV writer Grace Freud had accused Eamon O’Rourke of hitting her twice in the head at a club in Brooklyn known as Clara’s. The tweets were part of a series that Freud posted on Twitter. Eamon O’Rourke, an actor, writer, and director was seen in the pub with his friends, and it was subsequently disclosed on Twitter that he was the person in question. Freud, a writer for Rick and Morty, The Eric Andre Show, and a wide variety of other humorous programmes, including Girl God, was assaulted in New York City on April 20. The incident occurred as Freud was on his way to work.

According to tweets posted by Freud, the incident took place at the well-known bar and restaurant in Brooklyn known as Clara’s, where she is said to have addressed an entitled, arrogant male, and he didn’t like it. Following that, it is said that he “sucker-punched” her twice in the head in front of a large group of people who were watching. She stated, as someone who has survived being assaulted, please trust me when I say that this is the hardest I’ve ever been struck in the head.
What happened between Eamon O’Rourke and Grace Feud?
Eamon O’Rourke, who has over 20 years of experience in the film business, has been producing movies in Brooklyn for the last ten years. When he first started in the business, he worked on sets as an actor and production assistant. This helped him build his resume. He owned and operated his own music video production company for several years. During that time, he created music videos and commercials for a wide range of clients, including relatively unknown artists on the rise, as well as corporations with annual revenue in the millions of dollars, such as ScHoolboy Q and Tommy Hilfiger. Since then, Eamon has been active in the film business in various roles, including assistant director and producer.
Freud said that after the occurrence, her jaw ached and that she had a headache as a direct consequence. She also said that in the event’s aftermath, his associates had humiliated her to discredit her as a witness by attempting to invalidate her identification. To add insult to injury, O’Rourke recently created and directed the film asking For It. The narrative of the film follows a group of women as they plan vengeance on the men who mistreat and rape them.
The controversial actor Ezra Miller, who has been in and out of custody over the previous four weeks, appears in the movie as the protagonist. Miller was recently taken into custody for a second time on charges related to an assault against a female victim. On the other hand, Freud maintained the biting humour that became her trademark despite the event. She claims that Eamon O’Rourke and Miller are both actively marketing movies that focus on violence against women. In addition, Freud said that she would not report the event to the authorities in any way.
