Police were called to an afterparty following an off-Broadway show after selfie-seekers got too aggressive and even "taunted" Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei as she left.
Page Six reported that a horde of fans descended on New York City's Chelsea Hotel on Nov. 13 for the star-studded afterparty to celebrate "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea." However, things soon got out of hand and security officers brandished Tasers.

The crowd gathered outside the "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" afterparty in New York City on Nov. 13 was growing so problematic that event security repelled the throng with Tasers. Someone in the crowd reportedly called the cops.
"Extra security was called to try to manage the swarm of fans who congregated outside the show's afterparty," a source told Page Six. "Tensions came to a boiling point when Marisa Tomei exited the party at around midnight and tried to avoid the throng by beelining for her nearby car."
The fact that the Oscar winner didn't stop angered fans who apparently felt she owed them a greeting.
Page Six's source said a few angry fans followed Marisa Tomei around the block and were "taunting" her.
"Security quickly stepped in, brandishing Tasers, which provoked at least one member of the crowd to dial 911," said a source.
Marisa Tomei was already safely at home by the time police showed up and calmed the crowd. Once cooler heads had prevailed, the cops were actually invited into the party for a few drinks, but the on-duty officers declined.
Along with with Marisa Tomei, other stars at the party included Aubrey Plaza, Christopher Abbott, Dakota Johnson, Marc Jacobs, Mark Ruffalo, Patti LuPone, Natasha Lyonne, Michael Cera, Zawe Ashton, Ben Stiller, John Waters, Ethan Coen, Stephanie Hsu, Dan Stevens and Sam Rockwell.
