No one knows what has happened to Minnesota Vikings offensive tackle Matt Kalil, whose skills have fallen off a cliff since his Pro-Bowl rookie year. (If you’re actually curious about Kalil, some guy on Reddit did some pretty in-depth analysis).
It was more of the same for Kalil on Sunday, getting called for a facemask penalty and two holds in a three-point loss to the Packers. But after the game, Kalil wasn’t done making bad decisions.
The former USC Trojan got into an altercation with a fan who was giving him the business while he was leaving the stadium. Kalil, who was on his phone, walked over to the fan and backhand-slapped the heckler’s hat off.
Rhett Wade, the hat guy, told his story to ESPN’s Ben Goessling:
Can we really blame Kalil here? Just look at Kirby_Fuckett, he deserves whatever shade gets thrown his way based on that picture alone.
Oh, he will also be pressing charges according to City Pages:
When reached via Gchat this morning Rhett Wade said he felt threatened by Kalil when the 6-7 lineman stepped toward him, and after the video surfaced Wade said he planned on pressing charges.
Kirby_Fuckett’s 15 minutes of fame will never end.
