All choked up

I got this from a lil blurb in Star magazine and I really don't know how true it is but I thought it was interesting....

Bono's all choked up.

U2 front man Bono was eating fish and chips at Ivars, a restaurant in Seattle, when a burly man clapped him on the back and bellowed, "I’m a big fan of yours!” Bono started choking as friends looked on in horror, Then the fan slapped Bono on the back again, sending a piece of undigested fish flying onto the next table. With eyes watering, Bono gasped, “Mate, you better leave before I throttle you!”

Hell I'd like to throttle the guy.
Kind of a cheap shot. Just don't walk up behind anyone and slap them on the back.. Unless you know them
If this is true of course.. This being the Sun and all.

I'd find it very difficult to walk up to a celebrity while they're eating and interupt them, for starters. That's just plain tacky. If this is true he now has two things to be embarrassed about; interupting Bono's meal and making him choke.

Maybe he was that desperate to meet Bono and didn't think he'd get the chance ever again.
Still, it is a little rude, he should have tried to catch him when he was finished eating outside the restaurant or something.

And who goes and slaps a stranger on the back so hard it makes them choke anyway? It's bad enough if its someone you do know.
