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.
Tyreek Hill and Drew Rosenhaus want to take action against fan that doused the Chiefs WR with beer Sunday. They are talking to the NFL/NFLPA about options. “That type of behavior is unacceptable,” Rosenhaus said. “Players have to be protected. We want that fan to be prosecuted.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 15, 2018
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.
I thought it was disgusting! What’s sad is if @cheetah hit one of them, he’d be in the wrong.— Nathaniel E Burleson (@Nate13Burleson) October 15, 2018
This tweet is not to encourage @NFL players to respond aggressively to unruly idiots but more of a message to FANS...
You’re not at the zoo watching animals so show some respect! https://t.co/fYNNIaeeNn
Now if he smacked the piss out of one of you clowns you would be all over social media crying ready to sue him! Fans need to chill before somebody get hurt! You don’t have to like the opposing team but you need to show respect or don’t go! https://t.co/cdNy09AV4o— Reggie Bush (@ReggieBush) October 15, 2018
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.
