'Green Shirt Guy' becomes social media star after footage shows him laughing uncontrollably at MAGA hat-wearing anti-immigration protesters

A man dubbed 'Green Shirt Guy' has become an internet star after he was filmed giggling at two Donald Trump supporters protesting at a city council meeting.
Alex Kack, 28, was attending the meeting in Tucson, Arizona, when a man and a woman began chanting anti-immigration slogans and holding up protest signs.
Footage shows Kack, sitting near the protesters in a bright green shirt, shaking with laughter as he watches them.   
Kack, a blogger and comedian, had attended the meeting to support the decision to put a 'Sanctuary City' measure on the November ballot. 

If passed, Tucson could become Arizona's first official immigrant-friendly city.
The initiative already had the required number of signatures, according to city officials, which meant elected leaders were legally required to approve putting the issue on the November ballot. 
However, this seemed to infuriate the protesters who, mid-meeting, jumped to their feet to demonstrate. 
The woman shouted: 'You're in direct violation of the oath you took to the United States constitution.' 
To which a member of the crowd replied: 'You're in direct violation of being a jackass.'
Several people left as the woman spoke before police eventually escorted her and her companion outside. 
However, all the while, Kack, or Green Shirt Guy, continued laughing uncontrollably as the incident unfolded. 
Explaining his actions later, Kack said: 'Just how absurd it really all was.
'Who has the time in their day to come into a public space just to spread hatred and negativity? Like honestly what happened that made them so ridiculous and hateful?'
Kack is a field organizer for Peoples Defense Initiative and works specifically with Tucson Families Free and Together on the sanctuary city measure.
He was at the meeting with colleagues from the campaign to show their support.  
Speaking about the Sanctuary initiative, he told Mashable: 'I think it's a bold statement of morality that our community needs to make, given our history with the larger sanctuary movement and the community that lives here it's something that we need to pass.
'Families deserve to be together and all people deserve the right to feel safe.'
The footage of his laughter has gone viral and Kack described the online response as 'absolutely surreal.'
