The self-proclaimed "nomad" had been performing in the street in Nottingham when he says a man approached him aggressively, questioning his sexuality. Passers-by jumped to his defence and others filmed the encounter. But who is the Disco Bunny and why was he dancing in the street? The Disco Bunny's real name is Pablo Woodward. In 2016 the 32-year-old decided to "take control" of his life, by creating his "own job" - dancing in the street, purely to "unite all people" and put a smile on their faces. Pablo, who is father to two teenage children, is famous for his signature dance moves - among them the "gender-free shaky shaky" and says he hopes people can be "free" by living "vicariously" through him. He lives in a "Disco Bunny Bus", rides a "Disco Bunny Bike" and performs across the UK. However, Pablo objects to being described as called a busker, pointing out "usually buskers make money" and says he often ends up spending more than he makes to perform. Nevertheless, the dancer says although he isn't "financially successful", he is the happiest he has ever been. "Mentally, I have worked so hard on myself, on my learning. I have no financial success but you can see that I am successful, emotionally successful." Pablo is referring to the fact he remains calm throughout the contentious video - even when other people become visibly upset. He admits that at the time he was both rattled and furious, saying: "I was distraught and panicking but on the video I am smiling. Because I have been punched before, I have had abuse."
