A Red Sox fan was ejected and banned from Fenway Park for life for using a racial slur


A Boston Red Sox fan was ejected from a game at Fenway Park after another fan reported him using a racial slur against a Kenyan woman who sang the national anthem, reports NPR.

The man who reported the fan is Calvin Hennick who was taking his son -- a 6-year-old of mixed race -- to his first baseball game. 

Hennick described the man who was banned for life as being a "middle-aged white fan." The fan reportedly criticized the singer by saying that, "It was too long, and she (N-word)ed it up." 

Hennick recorded his feelings on Twitter. 

"I'm here to send a message loud and clear that the behavior, the language, the treatment of others that you've heard about and read about is not acceptable," Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said on the team's website. "It's not acceptable to the Red Sox. It's not acceptable to John Henry, Tom Werner, or any of the men and women that work here."

After Hennick reported the comment, the man was escorted out of the stadium and Hennick, his son, and his father-in-law were escorted to better seats. The ousted fan was not publicly identified. 

Race took center stage at Fenway after Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones was harassed.

Twitter wasn't having the Sunny Co. Clothing bathing suit photo. Not one bit.
