Wrestling legend Ric Flair goes viral for refusing to take picture with person who had no idea who he was

WWE legend Ric Flair has gone viral after refusing to take a photo with an individual who did not know he was.

The 73-year-old was filmed in a bar on his phone when a woman called Jess came up to him asking for a picture. It was captured on a TikTok from @dr.nicholasyoung, who racked up over 400,000 views on the clip.

The video starts with Jess saying, "I don't even know who this man is but I guess we're going to take a picture because he's famous".

She then approaches 'The Nature Boy', who appeared to be sat on his own at the bar. The girl tells Flair, a 16-time WWE champion and two-time Hall of Famer, she doesn't know who he is but that her friend told her he was famous, before asking if it was okay to take a picture.

"No it is not," was the short but sweet reply from 'the Dirtiest player in the game'. He looked a little annoyed but appeared to crack a laugh when she apologised, saying, "Okay, sorry".

She walked off in an embarrassment and explained, "He wasn't very happy with me, he told me he didn't want to take a picture with me, it's his loss not mine."

But fans sided with the legendary Flair and agreed that it was disrespectful of the woman.

One user wrote: "The disrespect. How do you not know who Ric Flair is?"

Another weighed in: "Ric will take time with his actual fans, not some rude lady. If you don't have enough class to find out who he is, then why bother asking for the photo Mam? Get a life.

A third added: "You wanna take a pic with Ric Flair, you get on line [sic] and pay like everybody else. WOOOOO."

A fourth commented: "Doing this s*** for internet clout is insane, but what’s worse is being this obnoxious about it. Leave him alone."

In a second TikTok, Jess became aware of Flair's iconic status through the 'Ric Flair drip' hit from rapper Offset, which features the grappler in the music video.

Flair is one of the biggest names in wrestling history and had his final match in WWE against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania in 2008.

In July, at the age of 73, he teamed with son Andrade against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal in Nashville what was advertised as his last match.
