Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame may have led to one man in Friendswood, Texas, punching his co-worker.
According to NBC News, 33-year-old Justin Gregory Surface was issued a citation for assault for reportedly punching a colleague in the chest after revealing a major spoiler about the film, which was not specified in that outlet's coverage. The incident, which carries a fine of up to $500, took place at a Domino's Pizza.
This isn't the first time spoilers for Endgame have moved people to violence. A report from earlier this month indicated that a man in Hong Kong was beaten up after loudly revealing spoilers for the film outside of the theater. Marvel Studios has made a point of emphasizing not spoiling Endgame for others, going so far as to start the hashtag #DontSpoilTheEndgame and reiterating Thanos' demand for silence.
Endgame's run at the box office so far has been nothing short of astonishing, having broken tons of records in its first week. The movie is currently sitting at $1.6 billion worldwide.
