Pope Shouts at Crowd for Making Him Fall Over


The Pope is often seen as calm and collected, but on Tuesday the pontiff was seen losing his cool with a crowd member during his visit to Mexico after he was pulled to the ground.

In the rare display of public anger, Pope Francis appeared to have reached his limit when the well-wisher tugged on his arm causing him to fall on a disabled man.

Francis was meeting the public in the city of Morelia during his five-day trip to Mexico when he was pulled.

He kissed the man in a wheelchair on the head before turning to the crowd.

ITV News reports that he appeared to shout: "No seas egoísta. Qué te pasó, no seas egoísta", which translates to "don't be selfish, don't be selfish."

He then took a few steps back and an announcement was made over the tannoy urging the crowd not to clump together.

According to CNN, the announcer said: "We are asking you to be careful. Please contain yourself. Pope Francis wants to greet us, but if we pile up, it will be difficult to do so."
