The Philadelphia 76ers took immediate action against a fan who threw popcorn on Russell Westbrook as he was walking to locker room during Game 2 of the first round series.

According to the official statement, the Sixers have revoked the fan’s season ticket as well as banned him from Wells Fargo Center indefinitely.

After an investigation into the incident that occurred at last night’s game, we have determined that the person involved will have his season ticket membership revoked, effectively immediately. In addition, he will be banned from all events at Wells Fargo Center indefinitely.

We apologize to Russell Westbrook and the Washington Wizards for being subjected to this type of unacceptable and disrespectful behavior. There is no place for it in our sport or arena.
