Russell Westbrook Threatens To “F–k Up” Utah Jazz Fan & His Wife During Heated Confrontation (VIDEO)
Russell Westbrook and bad fan behavior hit another saga on Monday night.
During Oklahoma City Thunder’s win over the Utah Jazz — the superstar guard was recorded threatening to “f— up” a Utah fan and his wife in response to “completely disrespectful” comments directed toward him.
“I’m gonna tell you one thing. I’ll f—- him up,” Westbrook tells somebody standing off camera.
“I promise you,” Westbrook continues. “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. Everything I love. Everything I love.”
According to Westbrook, the man told him to, “Get down on your knees like you’re used to.” Westbrook considered that comment to be “racial” and “inappropriate.”
Westbrook addressed the interaction after the game:
“The realization of it is — how it started was — a young man and his wife in the stands told me to ‘get down on my knees like you used to,’” Westbrook said. “To me that’s just completely disrespectful. To me, I think it’s racial, and I think it’s inappropriate in the sense that there’s no protection for the players.
“If I had to do it over again, I would say the exact same thing. I truly will stand up for myself and my family and my wife and my mom and my dad every single time. … As for beating up his wife, I’ve never put my hand on a woman, I never will.”
