It Turns Out There Wasn’t a Racist Maniac Yelling the N-Word at a Rockies Game

SJ - August 9, 2021

Social went crazy over the weekend after a video appeared to show a Rockies fan yelling the n-word at Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson.  I wasn't so sure so I didn't jump in on the madness.

For starters it didn't sound like n-word to me.  Also what kind of racist maniac would be yelling it loud enough for the broadcast to pick it up.  Wouldn't that have caused a scene?

There were too many red flags and I decided against posting it.  Well it turns out I was right.  Thank you, but the applause is unnecessary.  The fan did yell something very loudly, but instead of a racial slur he was yelling "Dinger."

The video is pretty clear that he was attempting to get the Rockies mascot, Dinger's attention.

Way to go social media.  Talk about misinformation.  It's a good thing it didn't reach the point of doxing the guy for trying to get the attention of a mascot.
