Fans Shout “Fried Chicken” At Sergio Garcia On Tee Box (VIDEO)

Sergio turned a personal dispute between he and Tiger Woods into a weird racial/cultural one when he made a “joke” about the two settling the beef over “fried chicken”. Inexcusably assholey. Fans at Merion aren’t letting this go, though, as they can be heard shouting “friend chicken” at Sergio as he waits to tee off. Smooth.

Sergio, who has apologized profusely for the poor attempt at humor, chose not to have the fans escorted out. Cops apparently asked him, and he said no. What a nice guy for someone who clearly is a smidge racist. Maybe he empathized with the boisterous fans, who themselves don’t seem to realize how obnoxious it sounds to shout a symbolic racial stereotype in a crowded area.

That’s like going to a Justin Beiber concert and shouting “Anne Frank”.

    “Clearly a smidge racist” – now that is a potentially libellous comment and I’ll be passing this website onto the appropriate people. What is neither racist, nor libellous is that in my opinion you represent the typical Yank – opinionated and ill-informed, mouthy and uneducated, willing to defend every “wrong” as long as it costs you nothing. Also excellent to see that you think that a spectator shouting at a golf tournament is a worthy story – so much better than, say, actually criticising a world leading golfer that continually curses in front of paying patrons and spits on the green. Only in America….

    They both seem like jerks…..however, “fried chicken’ IS a racist joke – kng. Both of them could use some maturity lessons.
