Girl With Tourette Syndrome and Her Family Got Kicked Out of Movie Theater

Before the movie even began, the manager approached Emily's mom and asked her to step out into the hallway.


Emily, a 15-year-old from Oklahoma who is absolutely in love with the Marvel’s movie got a surprise from her parents. She was about to go to the opening night of Avengers: Endgame. Both her and her family were looking forward to a night full of fun. 

However, their plan didn’t turn out as expected because of Emily’s Tourette syndrome. This disorder is characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. These movements, squawks, and grunts come on suddenly and are hard to control, although Emily manages to do so very often. 

Before the premiere showing, the girl tried letting the tics so that she could stay as silent as possible while the movie was on. But despite her efforts, and despite the fact the movie wasn’t on yet, people complained because of the noises she made. 

When the manager told the family to step out into the hallway, Emily’s mom assured him that her daughter would be quiet once the movie starts. The manager then said that it would be for the best if they simply leave the place. 

Hearing this, Emily’s mood changed and she felt heartbroken. Her mom, however, was determined to stand up for her and refused to leave.
