While many New York Jets players took last night’s disheartening loss to the Cleveland Browns in stride, Jets defender Micheal Clemons had a markedly different reaction.
At a certain point in the game, a TikTok user (nicole_guizzotti) captured Clemons engaging with some Browns fans who were poking fun at his team. The video depicts Clemons using a few expletives.
The noise in the stadium drowned out the actual words, making it unclear whether Clemons vocalized the profanities or merely mouthed them.
Jets fans found the incident embarrassing, but others found the entire exchange amusing:
“This is what the holidays are all about,” joked one user.
“Just know if I send you this video you know what it is lol,” replied another.
“This me wit society,” a third wrote, accompanied by a laughing emoji.
Clemons and the Jets’ highly regarded defense faced humiliation in the Browns’ 37-20 victory over them.
In the realm of professional sports, players are advised to do their best to ignore fan interactions, as sometimes external provocations can trigger emotional responses, as evident in this case.
