Watch: Sixers 'fan' pours popcorn on injured Russell Westbrook

The Sixers took care of business in Game 2 of their first-round series against the Wizards, beating them easily and taking a 2-0 lead as the series shifts back to Washington. 

Along the way, Wizards guard Russell Westbrook went down with an injury, and as he was being helped back to the locker room some — pardon my French — a--hole decided it would be a good idea to pour their popcorn on the veteran. 

In addition to being immediately escorted out of the arena, this person should banned for life. 

But even that might not be enough, because it only takes one clown like this to perpetuate the notion that Philly fans are the worst. They're not, and the overwhelming majority would never do anything like this. In that respect, this person should never be able to call themselves a Philly fan again. (I don't know who is in charge of these things, but someone needs to revoke this person's fan card, which is a real thing. Look it up.)

At this point, Westbrook must absolutely hate playing in Philadelphia. Not only does he get the business from the fans (the appropriate kind) every time out, but this isn't even the first incident involving the Wizards guard and a Philly fan who crossed the line. This unruly "fan" during Game 2, however, took things a step further. 

Making matters worse for Westbrook on this particular night was that he was forced to leave the game after hurting his ankle and ultimately had to watch the rest of the blowout loss from the locker room. And in between that, he got popcorn dumped on his head.

Talk adding insult to injury.
