An 800 pound Rhode Island man has been portrayed as a victim following news that the hospital he was being treated in kicked him out for ordering a pizza, but it appears they may have had more than one reason to boot him.
Steven Assanti, 33, of Cranston, lost 20lbs during his stay at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence en route to attempting to reach a 550lb goal weight so he could have gastric bypass surgery. But he was removed from the facility earlier this week for violating his care plan.
Mainstream media immediately rushed to make him out to be a sympathetic figure. A victim being picked on by the hospital.
With headlines like “800-pound man kicked out of Rhode Island hospital for ordering pizza,” from the Washington Times the media piled on the hospital and even interviewed his father who said his son’s life was in danger.
“If he comes home and I do get him up the stairs somehow, someway he’s going to go right back to his eating habits,” Assanti’s father Steven Veillette told WJAR adding that they are desperately looking for a new place to help his son.
“I just don’t know who to turn to,” he added. “I called everybody – everybody you can think of in the state of Rhode Island and nobody seems to be (able to) help me.”
But another side of Assanti has emerged this week and it isn’t pretty.
Videos that Assanti himself filmed and posted on YouTube have come to light, showing him verbally abusing hospital staff and mocking the taxpayers who pay for his care. He said taxpayers even foot the bill for the very laptop he used to film himself mocking them.
In the first video, the belligerent behemoth is seen yelling for a nurse saying “What the f**k is going on here? Nurse, nurse, nurse!”
When the nurse finally answers, he says “The machine’s beeping. Seriously, I’m going to die. It’s giving me a headache.”
In the second video, that is sure to anger the public, Assanti laughs at taxpayers for taking care of him.
“Thank you for paying taxes because without you, I would not have this urinal to pee in,” he yells at the camera in the video titled, “F**k The Taxpayers.” while showing a urinal to the camera.
“Without you I would not have these cans of food to eat. Without you I would not have pills to take to keep me alive, like Percocets, water pills, heart pills, iron pills,” he shouted. “I wouldn’t have none of that.”
The ungrateful, rage-filled Assanti continued to mockingly thank the taxpayers.
“I wouldn’t have this laptop I’m on if it wasn’t for you god**n taxpayers and I wouldn’t have this camera or this f***ing telephone right here if it wasn’t for you taxpayers.
“Thank you very much, I decided to s**t on each and every one of you taxpayers and just say ha ha.”
No wonder the hospital wanted him gone.
