Police are currently searching for a man accused of “performing a lewd act” at a Friday Howell, New Jersey showing of “The Emoji Movie.”

The man, described as “a white, heavyset man in his 20s or 30s,” was literally caught with his pants down at Howell’s Xscape Movie Theater. New Jersey News 12 first broke the news.

According to a woman watching the film with her children, the man “was seated alone in the back row of the theater” with hands down his unzipped pants. The theater’s manager asked the man to leave per the witness’ complaint, and police are now searching for him.

In 1991, “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” actor Paul Reubens was busted for masturbating in an adult movie theater. That was bad — but this is way worse: This man was bold enough to pleasure himself during a family animated film, with children in the audience.

Insert “gross” emoji here.
