Russell Westbrook Addresses 76ers Fan Who Dumped Popcorn on Him

Russell Westbrook Addresses 76ers Fan Who Dumped Popcorn on Him

A Philadelphia 76ers fan made the terrible decision of dumping popcorn on Russell Westbrook as he walked to the locker room after suffering an ankle injury during last night’s playoff game.

As expected, the popcorn pouring did not go well with Westbrook, who was obviously furious and had to be restrained by multiple individuals. The popcorn-throwing fan was eventually recognized and removed. Later it was confirmed that the unidentified fan had his season tickets revoked in addition to being banned from the Wells Fargo Center indefinitely.

Reporters questioned Westbrook, who scored 10 points in the game, about the rude incident after the game.

“This shit is getting out of hand, especially for me,” Westbrook said. “Just, the amount of disrespect… fans doing whatever the fuck they wanna do. It’s out of pocket, man. It’s out of pocket.”

Bradley Beal, a teammate of Westbrook’s, described the display as “disgusting.”

On social media, LeBron James even had something to say about the incident; he wrote: “By the way, WE AS THE PLAYERS wanna see who threw that popcorn on Russ while he was leaving the game tonight with an injury!! There’s cameras all over arenas so there’s no excuse!”

Valerie Camillo, the Wells Fargo Center’s President of Business Operations, denounced the guy who tossed the popcorn at Westbrook after the game.

“This was classless, unacceptable behavior, and we’re not going to tolerate it at Wells Fargo Center,” Camillo wrote. “We’re proud to have the most passionate fans in the country and the best home-court and home-ice advantage around, but this type of behavior has no place in our arena.”
