Lions fan who posted racist Snapchat rant gives up season tickets, banned from Ford field
DETROIT (WJBK) - The Detroit Lions say that a fan who posted a picture of two Lions fans sitting during the national anthem that included a racist name no longer has his season tickets.
The Lions confirmed to FOX 2 that the fan no longer will be a season-ticket holder and isn't welcome in the stadium.
In the photo, the two black Lions fans are sitting and are called "ignorant n-words."
The man allegedly behind the post is a Pontiac business owner, who, on Sunday, denied posting the photo and writing the bigoted caption.
“I didn't post any pictures, any collages anything … I don't know where that even came from,” said the unidentified business owner.
The woman in the video, Stacy, says she sits during the anthem because of the lyrics in the third stanza about killing self-emancipated slaves. She said that the man could have gone with something nicer.
“Everybody has an opinion. He probably could've stuck with ‘he wishes we would've stood’ and I would’ve been like ‘ok’, but to write that under our picture … no words,” said Stacey.
