Is Devin Booker glorifying fighting in the stands? Devin Booker is going viral for an act that some people see as heroic, and others see as a conflict of interest. The controversy surrounds a post he made where Devin Booker pays homage to a Suns fan beating up a Nuggets fan during Game 4.
The viral footage shows the Suns fun punching the Nuggets several times, holding him down by his chain, and then punching him some more even after he had already surrendered. What makes the situation so embarrassing for the Nuggets fan is that he threw the first punch. Dirty tactics were used by both people involved with one grabbing a person’s chain and the other throwing a sucker punch. Devin Booker posted a tweet with the Suns fans photo captioning it, “Needs man info”.
Is this a bad look for him from a PR standpoint?
The people who say Devin Booker is glorifying fighting in the crowd have a valid argument. However, this situation has a deeper meaning since the Suns fan didn’t start the altercation. This could also enhance his connection with Phoenix faithful.
Don’t be surprised if you see that fan sitting courtside in the Western Conference Finals.
