One Trump supporter just found out the hard way that their actions have serious consequences. The Utah Jazz fan who provoked an altercation with the Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Russel Westbrook last night has found himself banned from all events at that arena after the truth of his antagonizing comments — and past history of racist comments — came to light.
Westbrook received a $25,000 fine for telling fan Shane Keisel that he would “f*ck him up and his wife too” after Keisel told him to “get back on his knees like he was used to,” an obvious homophobic attack that Westbrook claimed was racially motivated. Other fans reported that he has hurled racial slurs and other abuse at him as well.

After it was discovered that Keisel had lied to the media about having said anything at all to Westbrook, the Utah Jazz took decisive action and made him pay for his remarks:
Internet sleuths quickly found his social media accounts, and they were unsurprisingly filled with both support for Trump and racial slurs.
