Video Captures Pope Francis Losing His Temper and Shouting While Greeting Supporters in Mexico: 'Don't Be Selfish!

News

The pontiff wasn't happy.

Pope Francis lost his cool while greeting some of his followers at a stadium in Morelia, Mexico, on Tuesday, after a person in the audience reportedly tugged at his robe, causing the pontiff to nearly fall on top of an individual in a wheelchair.

The incident, which was captured on video, unfolded after the unnamed fan grabbed the pontiff and wouldn't let go, causing him to lose his balance and fall forward, with his chest briefly pressing against the head of the man sitting in the wheelchair in front of him.

Aides and security guards stepped in to help Pope Francis get back on his feet, as it became immediately clear that the pontiff wasn't happy about what had unfolded.

He briefly shouted, "Don't be selfish, don't be selfish," as he shook his hands in irritation, the Daily Mail reported.

Watch the incident unfold below:

The minor mishap happened just before the pontiff was set to address a large audience; he was greeting children in attendance at the time.

Pope Francis will conclude his trip to Mexico on Wednesday.
