White Idiot basketball fan who shouted epithets at black player posted racist and Trump-loving tweets: report


Initially reported by Black Sports Online, Utahn Shane Keisel — who allegedly told Westbrook to “get down on your knees like you’re used to,” prompting the athlete to shout at him and his wife during a game Monday night — appears to have posted now-deleted tweets that used slurs and praised President Donald Trump.
“Come at me n****r boy,” Keisel tweeted after the incident began going viral, according to The Root.
Prior to the game, he also apparently wrote that Westbrook is a “piece of classless sh*t” and that someone needs to “kick his ass.”
In a tweet from March 2018, the Utah Jazz fan said Westbrook “needs to go back where he came from” — and added a #MAGA hashtag.
Echoing Trump’s alleged “sh*thole countries” comment, another screenshot suggests that Keisel once wrote that a photo of a street in an unnamed African country “looks like a sh*thole” to him.
UPDATE 3:10 PM EST
Keisel denied the characterization of his courtside argument with Westbrook in an interview with KSL-TV and claimed he told the player, “Sit down and ice your knees, bro.”
