Apparently Marshawn Lynch has a similar disdain for teenagers seeking autographs as he does for reporters looking for quotes.
A video, allegedly shot in Wisconsin over the weekend when the Seahawks were in town to play the Packers, shows a group of teenage boys asking Lynch for autographs. Lynch, minding his own business on his stroll through town, isn’t having it.
“Back up off me,” Lynch says as he turns toward the group who continue to follow him.
That’s all Lynch is heard saying during the 34-second video. However, TMZ reports Lynch told one of the boys “How would you like it if I slapped that [expletive deleted] phone out of your hand and that smile off your face,” after the cameras were off. The uncle of the boy told TMZ he was “shocked” by Lynch’s behavior.
Other than the report by TMZ, there is no proof that happened, however.
The video was shot on Saturday, before the Seahawks lost 27-17 to the Green Bay Packers. The Packers held Lynch to 41 yards. So at least we know Lynch wasn’t taking out his frustration on the teens.
