Somehow, Joey Bosa didn’t get the memo about Philadelphians.
Bosa, a Chargers linebacker and the older brother of 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, was seen getting into it with an obnoxious Eagles fan in South Philly ahead of Sunday’s NFC title game. The man began filming Joey Bosa and shouting his name while Bosa, wearing a Niners jacket, was waiting in line to get into the game. “When do the Chargers play this week?” the admittedly rude man yelled.
Rather than laughing him off, Bosa — who appeared to be toting a cherry-flavored Bud Light Seltzer — lost his temper. “What are you, Snapchatting your little butt buddies? F—king loser,” Bosa said.
The fan then heckled Bosa for his meltdown in the AFC wild-card round. (The linebacker received two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, one incredibly important to the game’s outcome, in the Chargers’ collapse against the Jaguars. The first was for arguing with a ref, and the second was for spiking his helmet.) Rather than ignoring this random dude, Bosa proved the man’s point exactly: He has a problem controlling his temper.
“How are those fines, Bosa?” the heckler shouted.
“They’re good because I can afford them. Because I’m f—king rich, you f—king broke bitch,” Bosa yelled, in full game mode simply to spectate.
A very uncomfortable-seeming woman in 49ers gear shot a tight-lipped smile to the crowd and ushered Bosa into the stadium. If that’s all it takes to set him off, the Bosa family may be in for a very long afternoon.
