Here's Video of the Jerk Who Killed hitchBOT

By Matt Novak on at

The hitchhiking robot known as hitchBOT was destroyed in Philadelphia over the weekend. And now we finally have footage of the jerk who did it. Vlogger Jesse Wellens posted the footage below to Snapchat. It shows a lone man in a sports jersey repeatedly kicking hitchBOT.

Judging from the timecode, the person kicks hitchBOT at 5:46 in the morning on Saturday August 1st. Without more context, it’s hard to say why this man destroyed the beloved robot. But this person clearly has some anger issues.

I think I know who will be first against the wall during the robot uprising.
