Warriors get fan ejected after he shouted profanities at Klay Thompson

One fan may have crossed the line during Friday night’s Milwaukee Bucks-Golden State Warriors game. With a little under seven minutes to go in the contest, a fan was ejected after shouting something at Warriors guard Klay Thompson.

With 6:53 left in the Warriors’ 108-94 win, Thompson took a hard foul while driving to the basket for a dunk. He slid near the first row of seats in the area behind the basket. That’s when the exchange took place.

As he’s about to get up, Thompson turns and appears to say “get out of here” in the direction of the crowd. At that point, Shaun Livingston and David West can be heard repeatedly saying “watch your mouth.”

The refs step in to try and calm things down. Moments later, security is seen speaking to a man sitting courtside. The announcers in that clip say they believe the fan was about to be escorted out of the arena.

Following the game, Thompson said the fan shouted a couple profanities at him.




Based on the response of Thompson’s teammates, the refs and the fact that security responded immediately, it appears they agreed that the fan went too far.
