Fans have had enough of NFL players and their protests that have left the league in a very difficult spot. Tensions are running high as many of the fans have recently made their voices crystal clear all across social media. As a result, ratings are down and stadiums are not filling up like they once did. Protesting is one thing, but what one player recently did is really sending shockwaves across the internet.
Raiders Pro Bowl left tackle Donald Penn decided to get into it with some chanting fans after he claims one fan threw a bottle at his car on his drive out of the stadium after the Raiders game.
Penn entered into a shouting match with taunting fans in the Oakland parking lot after his team lost a 30-17 game to the Ravens on Sunday, dropping the Raiders to 2-3 as frustration builds, but the giant never threw down.
Penn, in his 11th year, exited his car as a group of fans heckled, the apparent leader wearing a Raiders shirt. Penn, all 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds of him, approached the fan and started screaming, the only discernible words not flattering.
“What you gonna do, b—h ass n—-a,” Penn screamed, with nothing between the fans and the offensive tackle but a small metal barricade and a few security guards.
Penn eventually returned to his car…
HE TWEETED LATER:
“He threw a bottle at my car but I should have stayed in the car he was tryna get me to react so he could sue me glad I took a sec 2 think,” Penn tweeted Sunday night.
Penn, who has been in Oakland since 2014 after seven seasons with Tampa, signed a two-year, $21 million deal last month.
IS THIS A TREND? THIS HAPPENED RECENTLY:
Following the Redskins/Chiefs game on ‘Monday Night Football’, Washington wide receiver Terrelle Pryor was involved in a confrontation with a group of Kansas City fans who cursed at him as he walked off the field. Pryor dropped an F-bomb on the fans and flipped them off as he made his way into a tunnel at Arrowhead Stadium to head to the locker room. He also appeared to consider swinging his helmet at a fan.
Maybe the fans were out of line, but the issue is that people are sick and tired of being lectured by athletes who get paid millions and cry about discrimination. The NFL had better get it’s act together real fast before they lose even more fans.
