This is amazingly both of the above points

1. A clear and succinct citicism directed at the failings of a language in technical terms

Given Dmitry instigated that incident by attempting himself to "slut-shame" C, I'd say he had that one coming! I think Linus was fed-up there with the nth polite suggestion he re-implement either git or the kernel in C++.

There was a "police camera action" footage of a UK nightclub and a man leaping up and slapping the bouncer 6 or 7 times because he was not allowed in - on the eighth leap the bouncer simply punches him once to the ground.

The voice over explains that police had reviewed the footage, and whilst commonly prosecuting bouncers for ABH, this time declined to press charges.

Its probably not at all the same :-)
