It's hard out there for a Cincinnati Bengals fan who also happens to be a boy-band veteran, as Nick Lachey learned Sunday.
The 98 Degrees star was hanging at the Chargers-Bengals game in San Diego, being a good fan, cheering on his team, and all of a sudden THE MAN sweated him and threw him OUT of the stadium. (Video via TMZ, which is WHY we are capitalizing RANDOM words.)
You can't quite see in the video what happens, but clearly something went awry between Lachey and security. And after he was escorted out of the stadium, Lachey took to Twitter to tell his side of the story:
"Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder!" he wrote. "Go Cincy Bengals! #whodey." He followed that with "Bengals win again. i'd talk trash to everyone in SD, but what's the point? you already had me kicked out of the stadium and you still lost."
But with the dawn of a new day, and perhaps a little more perspective, Lachey backed off a bit and tried to offer perspective. "For the record, i was not kicked out of the chargers game for excessive 'trash talking'. no, that honor belonged to the guy in front of me!" he wrote. "i simply don't appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction. again, aside from a few exceptions, i had a great time hanging with Charger fans all afternoon. honestly, some of the nicest fans around."
We really hope the San Diego crowd chanted N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" at him as he left. That would've been some serious next-level trolling.
