Racist Hornets fan tells Ja Morant “Sit Down Boy” to his face while pointing at the ground, after he makes game winning layup and yells into crowd, in disturbing video during Grizzlies vs Charlotte game.
Ja Morant hit an amazing game winner yesterday, but racist comments from a fan in the crowd overshadowed the amazing moment. As Ja Morant was yelling into the crowd with excitement, a racist fan could be seen yelling “Sit down boy” in Ja Morant face while pointing at the ground. The incident happens at the 15 second mark in the video. It brought back memories of the racist Utah Fan who told Russell Westbrook “sit down boy”, while he was dancing on the sideline before a game last season. Racism has no place in sports, and incidents like these stain a game that is supposed to bring all cultures and races together in peace.
