A fan was thrown out after making comments about the Kardashians to Kings forward Tristan Thompson. The game was Sunday’s Memphis Grizzlies against the Sacramento Kings, but this fan didn’t get to stay until the end.
Drew Hill of the Daily Memphian reported that the fan was ejected for undisclosed comments. It was revealed that they were about Thompson’s personal life. The fan was removed during the game with 9:38 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Per multiple people around the fan that was thrown out of the Grizzlies game tonight, he was tossed because he was making comments about the Kardashian family in the direction of Tristan Thompson.
Thompson has a three-year-old daughter with Khloe Kardashian. He’s been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Khloe since 2016. Sacramento Kings interim coach Alvin Gentry shared to the reporters after the game about the incident but refused to divulge what the fan said.
“I don’t think it needs to be talked about or anything, but obviously it’s not anything that I’m going to tolerate people saying to my players—I know that—not without intervening and asking them to be removed. They can say anything they want to me or they can boo and do everything they want with the players, but there’s no room for saying inappropriate things in a sporting event. That’s not why you’re there.”
The incident came in the same week after two fans were ejected from an Indiana Pacers game against the Los Angeles Lakers for inappropriate comments directed at LeBron James.
