Detroit Lions Fan Banned From Stadium for Snapchat Post Calling Black Couple ‘Ignorant Niggers’ for Not Standing for Anthem

The NFL’s Detroit Lions say they have canceled the season tickets of a fan who allegedly used a racial slur in a Snapchat post.

The post criticized an African-American couple for remaining seated during the playing of the national anthem at last weekend’s season-opening game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Lions initially declined to comment on the matter, but confirmed for ESPN on Thursday that the fan would no longer be welcome at Ford Field.
