Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown made the first move in Thursday night’s heated rivalry game against the Packers at Lambeau Field. He left Green Bay cornerback Rasul Douglas behind as he sprinted to the end zone for a spectacular 24-yard touchdown.
However, the electrifying touchdown was soon eclipsed by what unfolded during St. Brown’s celebration.
Capitalizing on the moment, St. Brown decided to execute a “Lambeau Leap” after putting the Lions on the scoreboard early in the first quarter.
He quickly spotted a handful of Detroit fans in the front row and effortlessly leaped into the stands to share the excitement.
Yet, one nearby Packers fan clearly took offense to the rival player imitating Green Bay’s iconic celebration. The broadcast captured the fan reaching over and pouring what appeared to be a full beer on St. Brown’s helmet and shoulders, creating an unpleasant spectacle.
The incident provoked outrage within the NFL community, with many taking to social media to admonish the fan for crossing a line.
Brown had a response to getting a bird flipped at him.
However, it raises the question: What did he anticipate would transpire when he attempted the Lambeau Leap?
