Twitter divided over Weiner's latest confrontation

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is under fire again. This time, it's for a lively confrontation with a heckling voter.

The incident with Saul Kessler began inside a bakery in Brooklyn's Borough Park neighborhood, where the man yelled at Weiner as he was leaving, "You're a real scumbag, Anthony."

Weiner responded with, "That's a charming guy right there."

Kessler continued, "You are married to an Arab."

Weiner fired back, "very nice, in front of children... That is charming."

The heated exchange continued with Kessler calling out the former congressman over his sexting scandal.

"You did disgusting things, and you have the nerve to even walk around in public," Kessler said.

And a clearly angered Weiner responded saying, "you're a perfect person? You're my judge? What rabbi taught you that?"

Weiner's campaign released a video of Wednesday's exchange, a version of which also was captured by blogger Jacob Kornbluh. Weiner described to reporters what happened as "just some enthusiastic exchange with a voter."

Was Weiner right to go after the heckler?

Twitter is divided. Here are a few Twitter comments:
