Patriots fan who threw beer at Tyreek Hill banned from Gillette Stadium; Hill intends to “take action”

New, comments

Hill had beer thrown on him after his fourth-quarter touchdown to tie the game.

UPDATE (Monday, 2:35 Arrowhead Time): Tyreek Hill is interested in taking action against the fan who threw beer on him, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill received a face full of beer courtesy of a New England Patriots fan after Hill scored a 75-yard touchdown Sunday night to tie the game at 40 in the fourth quarter. The play reminded me of when this happened to running back Jamaal Charles years ago in Oakland.

Good Morning Football’s Nate Burleson and former running back Reggie Bush were among the well-known NFL personalities who came to Hill’s defense.

Early Monday afternoon, the New England Patriots announced they had identified the fan and sent him a letter of disinvite from future events at Gillette Stadium.

Gillette Stadium security has identified the fan who violated the fan code of conduct by tossing beer onto a player during the game last night. The matter has been turned over to local law enforcement and the fan will be sent a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium.

I have never knew that a letter of disinvite was a thing, but I love that it is.

In-laws bothering you? Letter of disinvite. Don’t want the boss to come to the Christmas party? Letter of disinvite.

It’s a whole new world.
