The new Donny?

Monday night my granddaughter and I went to Donny and Marie Osmond's Christmas show at Abravanel Hall. I have always admired Donny's talent and his winning ways with people of every age.

Imagine watching a film clip where Donny thinks it's fun to push a police officer down and then run away. Donny also thinks it's funny, apparently, to throw a drink into the face of a motorcycle rider, causing him to fall off his cycle and lie there injured, as Donny and TV comedy host Jimmy Kimmel laugh and run away.

My granddaughter and I looked at each other and wondered what has happened to Donny. This is the most tasteless piece of film footage we have seen in a long time.

What on earth are you thinking, Donny? Is brutality your new style? We were stunned.
