Washington Wizards star Russell Westbrook is no stranger to having negative interactions with fans.
“I’m all for the fans enjoying the game and having fun,” Westbrook continued. “It’s a part of sports; I get it. But there’s certain people who cross the line. In any other setting, I know for a fact that a guy wouldn’t come up to me on the street and pour popcorn on my head because you know what would happen.”
After the incident, the fan who allegedly dumped the popcorn on Westbrook’s head was escorted out from the arena. While it’s unclear what the next steps are, Westbrook and other NBA players are urging the NBA to look into the situation and find ways to avoid similar incidents in the future.
