    A California security guard has become a social media star after a video showing his calm demeanor while being berated with insults went viral last week, NBC News reported.

    The incident happened at VidCon, an annual convention for YouTube fans and content creators, which took place at the Anaheim Convention Center from June 21-24, 2017. In the video, first uploaded to YouTube on June 22, security guard Joseph Hernandez is seen in his yellow and black uniform standing guard at a door following a physical altercation between some attendees and security.


    In the video, Hernandez and his colleague Sergio Castillo ask the crowd to stand back just as a young man identified later as Christian Burns begins asking Hernandez, "What is wrong with you people?"

    NBC News has reached out to Hernandez about the incident.
