Wearing a Johnny Football shirt and perhaps exhibiting the over-confidence that comes with beating the No. 1 team in the country, a blitzed Texas A&M fan decided while at an airport that it would be best if he yelled racial slurs and picked a fight with a black guy at the gate. Spoiler: It didn't work out well for him.
According to a Redditor who saw it all go down, this idiot's tirade began after he became angry at a ticket counter attendant who told him he was too drunk to board the plane. The Aggie fan dumped his trail mix onto the floor, began yelling at the lady, and then redirected his anger at an African-American man who told him to calm down. N-bombs were thrown (and apparently are said on the video, although to be perfectly honest I can't make out anything he says), and a fight commenced. Via Reddit:
i saw this go down yesterday waiting for my Southwest flight from New Orleans to Houston. the Aggie fan in the Johnny Football shirt was drunk and not allowed to board the plane. He got irate with the ticket counter attendant and dumped out a bag of trail mix. The black guy was waiting at the ticket counter stood up for the ticket attendant and told Johnny F’in Football to calm down. He then redirected his anger at the black guy, started dropping n-bombs and even made a comment about picking cotton.
Fisticuffs ensued and after about 30 secs Paul Blart showed up on a segway. Luckily it was caught on video because the Johnny Football guy lied to the cops initially and said the black guy started it – upon reviewing the video evidence the black guy was exonerated and allowed the board the flight. Everyone clapped for him as he was walking down the aisle (especially me because I was flying standby and ended up getting Johnny Football’s seat!)
Now please share with everyone you know so this drunk racist gets fired
Our favorite part of the video? The black dude's calmness in how he takes off his jacket before he starts throwing punches. It's something out of an 1800's duel. "I say, sir, must we now exchange fisticuffs? Very well then."
