NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Owens connected with a fan in a CVS, and he proved to have the fan’s back as he dropped a man heckling him outside.
Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens proved on Sunday he undeniably loves his fans. He met and chatted with a San Francisco 49ers fan at a CVS in Los Angeles, and another man began speaking harshly and threatening to beat the two up outside.
According to TMZ, Owens tried to peacefully end the incident, but the man began swinging at him. In return, Owens punched him in the chin, sending him down to the pavement. His days in the NFL may be long over, but age certainly isn’t getting to the Hall of Famer as he’s still proving to be quite strong.
He is, however, no stranger to controversy as he was constantly making comments and doing things most people frowned upon. His personality clearly hasn’t changed much, either.
Terrell Owens was often the face of controversy in the NFL
While Owens’ interaction at CVS was out of self-defense, there have been many actions throughout his NFL career that weren’t quite as warranted.
One of his most bizarre moments was skipping his own official Hall of Fame induction ceremony to have one his way at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he played college football.
Instead of hosting his own ceremony after the fact, he decided to give his speech the same day as the official ceremony. Owens was a headliner of the 2018 class along with Randy Moss, so it was certainly a bold decision. However, it perfectly showed his personality, as he’s truly a bold person.
In some harsher times, he got himself indefinitely suspended from the Philadelphia Eagles as he made remarks and had fights with several players. In one instance, he ripped quarterback Donovan McNabb, telling him the team would be better off with Brett Favre than him.
One thing is certain through each instance: Owens won’t hold back how he feels, even when it comes to decking a stranger outside of a CVS.
