Athletes have been told to watch what they tweet. The same apparently goes for fans attending a game.
That’s a lesson being found out today after a fan at Tuesday’s Cleveland Cavaliers game tweeted that he would run onto the court if his tweet received 1,000 ‘re-tweets’.
Possibly thinking it wouldn’t come close, the fan made such an offer but within a short amount of time, his message went viral and the fan seemingly was prepared to fulfill his obligation.
He wouldn’t get an opportunity though as somehow the Cleveland Cavaliers security was tipped off and the fan was then escorted out of the game.
After/during the ejection, the fan was issued a warning card by the team, so they clearly knew what he was planning to do.
I’m not sure how the team was able to pluck the fan out of the crowd given they could only see a generalized area where he was sitting, but regardless they found their man.
Maybe it was the flamboyant shoes. If you’re going to storm an NBA court in the future, don’t wear shoes that look like they were crafted out a bag of melted Skittles.
Ironically enough, that was the third (at least) Cavaliers fan ejected from a game this season after running on to the court (or at least tweeting about it).
