Bronx actors stage violent parody video to slam ‘Joker Stairs’ tourists

A group of Bronx actors on Wednesday tried to stage a wild “parody” video to mock the selfie-snapping tourists who are flocking to a local staircase featured in the “Joker” movie — but some neighbors weren’t laughing.

In their video, some of the actors pretended to be visitors to the steps at Shakespeare and Anderson avenues in Highbridge, while others, dressed as the madman villain, confront the interlopers.

“You’re acting like a bunch of parasites coming all the way from downtown to the Bronx because you saw a movie!” one actor is seen shouting.

One “out-of-towner” then gets tossed down the stairs, and a chaotic brawl then erupts on the staircase, as other actors scream, flee and laugh maniacally.

One of the moviemakers told The Post their sketch was meant to “poke fun” of tourists who have been congregating on the stairs since the film hit screens earlier this month, blocking locals from using the shortcut.

But as action unfolded, one neighbor called the actors just as obnoxious as the selfie-takers.

“What the hell?” the resident huffed while walking by. “I can’t stand this bullsh–t.”
