Russell Westbrook: Jazz Fans Are Racist + Disrespectful: Players Need Protection

CelebNSports247.com has the latest from Russell Westbrook who clears the air on why he told a couple Utah Jazz fans that he’d F them up.

According to Russell Westbrook, he fells that a husband and wife showed their racism shouting at Russell by saying:

Get down on your knees like you’re used to.

The comment was a blatant racial remark and completely unacceptable. Russell explains in a press conference after the game why he swore he’d F them up. He was caught on video yelling at the racist couple yelling from the bench:

I promise you. You think I’m playing? I swear to God. I swear to God. I’ll f— you up. You and your wife. I’ll f— you up. … I promise you. [On] everything I love — everything I love — I promise you

The Utah Jazz fans were escorted out of the game after that racially slandered Westbrook. Following the incident, KVTV Sports reporter Steve MeGhee tweeted:

I was informed a presumed Jazz fan has been escorted out by the Thunder bench.

Following the incident, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook, 30, had this to say about the disrespectful Utah Jazz fan:

I don’t confront fans, fans confront me. Here in Utah, man, a lot of disrespectful, vulgar things are said to the players here with these fans. It’s truly disrespectful. (They) talk about your families, your kids. It’s just a disrespect to the game and I think it’s something that needs to be brought up.

I’m tired of just going out and playing and letting fans say what the hell they want to say. I’m not with that. If I was on the street, they wouldn’t just come up to me and say anything crazy, because I don’t play that (expletive).

Russell feels that it’s becoming unsafe for players just play in the NBA. He feels that players need more protection from fans who pose a threat like the couple who said racial slurs.

CelebnSports247.com feels that fans are really becoming a threat in the Trump era. Racists are showing their ugly heads everywhere. This NEEDS to sttop.
