Colorado Rockies Fan Yells Something Very Loud and Questionable

The Colorado Rockies are in total disarray. The story of the rest of their season should be how they botched the trade deadline and still have Trevor Story. However, a Colorado Rockies fan stole the show when he yelled something loud, and the microphones caught it.

The Original Reaction

When I first heard the video last night, I thought that it was a no-brainer that this fan said some absolutely horrible shit. I was not the only one who heard the same thing, and the Rockies themselves released a statement to try and make things right.

“The Colorado Rockies are disgusted at the racial slur by a fan directed at the Marlins’ Lewis Brinson during the ninth inning of today’s game.”

“The Rockies have zero tolerance for any form of racism or discrimination, and any fan using degoratory language of any kind will be ejected and banned.”

The Next Day

This is where things get interesting. I went to sleep and thought that there was nothing else to this story. However, I was wrong. The Rockies mascot’s name is Dinger, and it could have been a fan calling him.

I have written about these types of things before for Vendetta, one time where someone clearly said something, and one time where someone didn’t say it. Symfuhny, a Twitch streamer, was accused of using a racial slur, and I don’t think he said it. Meyers Leonard, the NBA player who also streamed on Twitch, said an anti-semitic slur that was clear as day.

I actually still think that some fan said something horrible and should be punished and that the fan pointed out in the second tweet was a completely different instance.
