In separate footage of the incident, the person — who was dressed in plaid shorts and a matching hat — pointed at Wayne as they continued to argue. He puts his arm around the owner of the Beach Club and appears to be making amends.
However, Wayne seemed unimpressed by his behavior and pushed his arm away before making a murderous gesture, indicating that he wanted to remove the man.
The person was then escorted out of the premises by his suspected friends, and staff wearing red T-shirts motioned for him to leave.
Wayne defended his reaction to the man on Instagram, saying: “Obviously this video is all over Tiktok and in the papers today, so f**k it, I’ll tell you exactly what happened.
