does one gently push the rig out to make more room between the subject and yourself... kind of like another person stepping in-between.

Most of the form involves going limp, taking hits and reaching for my cell phone to call my attorney.

Then, step your right leg up in a pivoting movement,
the arm elbow will be your weapon to attack to the chest of the opponent.
I say, stay and use your rig as a shield and a weapon. Your best chance to survive.
If you run, you sustain heavy loss.
If the guy is a celebrity, take one hit from him first, then retaliate. After that, collect the compensation for your wound.

Then it escalates, with LW demanding an apology, which the operator gives to him repeatedly, but it’s not enough for LW… but it’s still just some words flying around.
It seems to me like the op did exactly the right thing – he was focused on his job and tried to hold the shot. When that failed, he tried not to escalate a situation borne of ignorance, and he was successful.
A friend reminds me that it is our job to always be professional, courteous, selfless, and not draw attention to ourselves in any manner.

It's downright insulting that no one in Wayne's camp has the audacity to tell him that he was wrong and out of line. We simply call those folks losers because they don't have the balls to stand up and be men. I would love to think that I'd be very professional in a similar situation, but it all depends. You act accordingly and always show respect.
