At a WWE Live event on December 8 in Daytona Beach, Florida, an incident occurred with Sami Zayn and a fan at ringside.
While ringside for a match inside of a steel cage that featured Shinsuke Nakamura, who was wrestling "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt, a fan who was sitting front row allegedly started hurling repeated homophobic slurs in Sami Zayn's direction.
There is no place for homophobic insults anywhere, especially in wrestling. I really hope that "fan" gets banned from wrestling events FOREVER after calling Sami Zayn "Canadian faggot" over and over and over again during a live event.

He called him a Canadian F****t over and over.— John Betz (@JohnBetz) December 9, 2019
Sami became irate with this audience member and footage captured him saying, "get him out of my fucking face, homophobic moron." When the fan persisted to be confrontational, Sami would say, "say it louder for everyone, homophobic dick.”
Sami who’s a heel standing up to homophobic comments because it’s the right thing to do. A great human being. pic.twitter.com/G8OTkn78vE— Zack (@TheZackLethal) December 9, 2019
The fan was also ejected from ringside.
