Woman with Bionic Prosthetic refused space to charge ‘arm’ by people charging their ‘phones’

SNS | New Delhi |

In a hard-to-believe incident, people refused to give up their power source to let bionic activist Angel Giuffria charge her bionic arm.

The actress, who has acted in films like The Accountant and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, took to Twitter on 11 March and informed about the incident. She said that people at the SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas didn’t give up their power source so that she could charge her arm. She, then, found an outlet in the back of the room.

Angel Giuffria, who was born without a left hand, tweeted, “#CyborgProblems🤖 FYI: People at this @SXSW panel refused to give up charging their phones so I could charge my arm 🙃✨ but I found an outlet in the back of the room so CHARGE ME UP.”


In another tweet, the actress asserted that she didn’t have any hard feelings for the people.

“Y’all I’m not mad at them! I thought it was funny (bc there was another plug nearby.) For all I know, they were confused by the entire situation since everyone here at #SXSW seems to think my arm is a video game fashion statement or fancy lit up glove not a prosthesis ¯\_(ツ)_,” she tweeted.
