Cavs Fan Shouts Slurs at Spurs Guard Patty Mills on National TV

Share on Nextdoor
Security officials at the Q are reportedly investigating a fan who yelled racial slurs at Spurs guard Patty Mills in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Cavs game.

Mills, who is of Australian descent, was shooting free throws when Twitter user Zandra Ashley captured a fan shouting derogatory remarks on the nationally televised (ABC) broadcast. "Jamaican Dog, they want their bobsledder back," the fan can be heard shouting. "Hey Mills! Jamaica just called, they want their bobsledder back."

Patty Mills thanked Ashley for bringing the video to his attention Sunday night and hoped that publicizing the slur might "enlighten this confused, hateful fan."
