Don’t mess with Buzz Aldrin! So how does “Bad Ass” deal with “Moon Deniers?” Check this video out from September 9, 2002 – when Buzz was 72 years old. Committed moon landing denier Bart Sibrel follows our star – the infamous Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin out of a Hollywood hotel and relentlessly harasses him about whether he actually landed on the moon – he demands that Buzz swear on a Bible that the landing was not staged. Sibrel keeps pushing until Buzz reacted – and then our favorite senior citizen Astronaut doesn’t pull any ‘punches’. Californian authorities have decided against prosecuting former astronaut Buzz Aldrin after he punched a documentary maker who claimed his moon missions were faked despite that fact that Sibrel gave authorities the tape and demanded that they take action!
So let’s check out who these guys are: Buzz Aldrin (born Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr., January 20, 1930) is an American engineer and former astronaut. As the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11, he was one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, and the second person to walk on it. He set foot on the Moon at 03:15:16 on July 21, 1969 (UTC), following mission commander Neil Armstrong. He is a former U.S. Air Force officer with the Command Pilot rating.
Bart Winfield Sibrel (born 1964) is a conspiracy theorist who claims that the six Apollo Moon landings between 1969 and 1972 were hoaxes. He has produced four amateur films on the subject and is mostly known for having been punched in the face by Buzz Aldrin for harassing and insulting him.
