Robert Pattinson

SHOVES Security Guard

Robert Pattinson
violently SHOVED a guy he apparently thought was a snap-happy photog while exiting a club Friday night ... but turns out it was a security guard.

In the chaotic video -- taken outside the Troubador -- a boozed-up looking Robert is seen trying to leave the venue while swarmed by paps. You can tell it's tough to navigate.

As Robert makes his way to his car through the mayhem, he suddenly throws his hand to another guy's face ... forcefully PUSHING him backwards. Suddenly paps are heard asking, "Why'd you hit him?"

Afterwards, the vic -- who is actually part of the bar's security team -- is heard saying "He grabbed me on my face" as he picks his glasses up from the ground.

He also makes it clear Robert thought he was someone else -- a photog.

So is the security guy pissed? Check out his reaction AND the look on Robert's face he drives away. Kinda says it all.

What did anyone expect in such a chaos? Hope it had been actually a pap he smacked.

Paps instigating again. Can't tell who's who with the damn flashes. Paps are ridiculous, seriously get a real job and stop looking for a easy buck. Wasn't assault and not a punch. Grow up, if you can dish it Paps learn to take it bullies....

Paparazzi are truly the s*** of the earth. I don't need to see a photo of a celebrity so badly that they should be stalked and harassed by these filthy photographers. I love that movie "paparazzi" from a few years ago. I think it has a happy ending where the paps wind up getting killed. So awesome!!

If we can barely see what happened on the video with all the flash and chaos, how could he have a chance to figure out what was going on? It's impossible to see where you're going in that mess, it's all he could do to just get through it. Surprised it doesn't happen more often.

Crazy flashes, people closing in, and the over the top aggressiveness of paps at every turn, what a hassle. It's not right but it is understandable.

I know, the "price of fame" and all but those rogue paps are too much.

The security guard should have whipped his scrawny ass. But the sad thing is, that guard will probably sue. And if he sues because of that than he is a bigger puss than Patterson. Bottom line, the security guard should have whipped his Euro ass. American style

Fell sorry for Pattinson. He was keeping his cool for so long, after Kstew's cheating scandal the paps were so horrible to him.. If it was me I would have kicked the paps in the nuts by now tbh.
