Last night a man was forcibly ejected from audience of the Josh Warrington vs Carl Frampton fight at the Manchester arena, the reason behind the man being told to leave was the fact he is wearing a Union Flag waistcoat. The crowd booed and heckled security who grabbed the gentleman despite him taking off his ‘offensive’ waistcoat.
A post on Twitter that has been retweeted over 1,000 times explains what happened from the man’s point of views.
Responding to the incident social media blew up in support of the man in the Union Flag waistcoat as users took to Facebook and Twitter to vent their frustration at the patriotic man being kicked out of the boxing for simply wearing the Nations flag.
