Russell Westbrook Addresses The Fan Who Dumped Popcorn On His Head

It’s been just revealed that Russell Westbrook addressed the night after a fan dumped popcorn on his head as he was being helped out of a game in Philadelphia. He is now calling for the NBA to institute some form of consequences for fans who take things a little too far.

‘Russ was being escorted out of the game after suffering an ankle injury when a fan poured a bucket of popcorn on his head, and he then tried to fight through NBA personnel to make his way to the stands. As a player who is often heckled by fans, Westbrook said the behaviour is “bulls**t” at this point, and made it clear that fans need to be held responsible,’ The Shade Room notes.

‘To be blatantly honest man, this sh*t is getting out of hand, especially for me,’ he told reporters. ‘The amount of disrespect, the amount of fans just doing whatever the f*ck they want to do, it’s just out of pocket, man.’

Someone said: ‘How did Philly get named the city of Brotherly Love?! 😩😆🤣’ and another follower posted this: ‘Ion even know why they try that man. He will beat you up and take the fine happily.’

A fan said: ‘Who ever did that is actually weird asf’ and someone else posted this: ‘Respect for Lebron for speaking out!’

One follower said: ‘He’s not lying. Those fans don’t view him as a man, but as property. SMH. Once he run up. Then it’s gonna be a problem. That’s assault and the fan should be banned. Period.’
