NASA Astronaut Buzz Aldrin who was part of the Apollo 11 crew punched a man holding a Bible back in 2002.
Aldrin punched the man after the man holding the Bible asked Aldrin to put his hand on the Bible and say he stepped foot on the moon.
Aldrin refused to put his hand on the Bible and eventually punched the man.
Here’s what the left leaning Snopes reported:

In September 2002, Aldrin, then aged 72, landed a punch on conspiracy theorist Bart Sibrel, who laboring under the false belief that the moon landings were staged, was busy confronting and insulting the legendary astronaut when it happened.
The incident occurred outside a hotel in Beverly Hills, California, and was captured on video by Sibrel’s crew. Sibrel had been attempting to make a documentary film proving the moon landings were fake, according to news reports at the time.
Aldrin can be heard exclaiming, “Will you get away from me?” while Sibrel, standing close to him, continues, “You’re a coward and a liar and a thief,” when Aldrin’s punch lands with a thud.
The resulting video of the incident probably had the opposite effect that Sibrel was looking for.
Police declined to charge Aldrin after witnesses came forward stating that Sibrel had physically provoked him by poking him with a Bible and demanding the 72-year-old swear he really did go to the moon. Additionally, Aldrin had stated he was acting in self-defense and in defense of his stepdaughter, who was accompanying him.
