A street entertainer painted silver had his collection money kicked across the street after he reportedly screamed at shoppers to give him cash.
The 'silver man' has already gained notoriety after swearing on live TV during a report for the BBC in Leicester's city centre.
Ricky Carter, 32, lives in Loughborough but comes to the city to pose as a statue by the famous clock tower.
At around 5pm on Tuesday, he began shouting at people in the city centre, reports the Leicester Mercury .
Crowds of shoppers stopped and stared before a man walked over and kicked the metal bucket Mr Carter uses to collect change in.
Mr Carter went to retrieve his money and called the other man "a f****** idiot".
