One man’s attempt to watch “Black Swan” in peace and quiet ended tragically this weekend when he was killed for complaining about a fellow moviegoer’s noise.

The 43-year-old man was attacked in a movie theater in Latvia on Saturday when he asked a particularly loud popcorn-munching member of the audience to keep it down.

The offending eater, 27, was apparently so insulted that he opened fire with a “legally registered” weapon, the Guardian reported.

Identified as “a graduate of the police academy who holds a doctorate in law from the University of Latvia” the shooter was then reportedly “overpowered by other audience members until cops arrived.”
