Yesterday, Ronnie Pickering was just an angry man from Hull. Today, Ronnie Fucking Pickering is an Internet sensation.
Here’s the skinny.
Last week, Steve Midz was riding his motorbike in Hull when he was repeatedly honked by the driver (Ronnie Fucking Pickering) of a red Citroen Picasso, travelling behind him.
The ensuing road rage episode was caught on the biker’s headcam and uploaded to YouTube (“What, with that little thing?”). And the rest, as they say, is history.
Here’s how it’s playing out on Twitter…
