An alleged altercation involving an unidentified woman, a bar manager, and a pair of Louboutins has turned into an internet-wide manhunt. According to the bar manager, who stated his case earlier this week to Eater SF, the incident went something like this: Woman stops to change from Louboutin heels into flip flops, passerby accidentally knocks over one of the heels, woman's date punches passerby in the face, bar manager says to calm down because "Kicking a shoe doesn’t equal a punch in the face, Louboutins or not!"
At this point, the women supposedly goes all Single White Female on his ass and attacks him with the Louboutins in question. Then, adding injury to injury, her date punched the bar manager in the face and threw his phone in the street. But not before the bar manager got a photo of her! Which he promptly posted on Twitter, along with the promise of a $500 reward for the woman, dead or alive.
Just kidding. He's offering a $500 reward for her last name. Please don't harm her if you find her—the Louboutin violence needs to end.
