There are celebrities that are frequently trainwrecks in public situations and celebrities who are usually angels. However, occasionally, a famous person in either one of these categories can throw a real curveball and behave in a manner that seems contrary to that person’s nature. This is what happened to former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey when he was kicked out of yesterday’s San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnatti Bengals game.
The usually demure star was positively gleeful about being booted from the stadium for having apparently exchanged some pretty horrific words with a Chargers fan. Lachey is known for being a diehard Bengals fan, and apparently the 39-year-old has not yet learned how to speak softly and carry a big stick. He took to Twitter after the event to discuss his removal from the stadium.
“Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals! #whodey.”
Early reports indicated the celebrity was kicked out for trash talking, but in an extended tweet, Lachey mentioned that the trash talker was the man in front of him, which he did not appreciate.
“i simply don't appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction.”
Issues aside, Lachey has said most Chargers fans were awesome during yesterday’s game, which ended with the Bengals winning in a 7-point victory over the Chargers. Lachey’s day may not have gone all that well, but at least it ended on a good note, and hopefully, he’ll return to his usual good guy personality.
