Jazz Fan Who Received Lifetime Ban For Racially Disrespecting Westbrook Sues NBA & Westbrook

 

Russell Westbrook is being approached by hecklers quite often, maybe because he’s one of the few players who has never been one to put up with everything, therefore regularly reacting to the hecklers. But when it comes to racial slurs, a line is crossed by fans that requires repercussions.

This line was crossed this past season when Westbrook was racially disrespected by a Utah Jazz fan.

Thankfully, the repercussions were taken after the incident, and the fan got banned for life!

This fan, who’s named Shane Kiesel, has now filed a $68 million suit against the NBA and Russell Westbrook.

Kiesel filed the lawsuit to the 4th District Court, denying the claims made by the league against him where he supposedly shouted racist and derogatory remarks to Westbrook.
