A group of 49ers fans were caught on video viciously beating a Vikings fan outside Levi’s Stadium on Monday night following San Francisco’s 20-3 season-opening win over Minnesota.
According to the person who shared the video on Facebook, per Yardbarker, the brawl began when the victim and a 49ers fan started “talking smack” to each other.
“A lot of fans from both sides were telling both people to stop and just walk to their cars,” the witness wrote in a post that has since been deleted. “The Viking fan shoved his wife into a barrier to try to get to the 49er fan, then at that point the 49er fan walked away from the situation and that’s when the Viking fan may have got a little cocky. The Viking fan turned around and addressed everyone behind him (mostly 49er fans). He said, ‘What’s up, any of you (expletives) want some?!’
“At that point everyone went silent for 2 seconds then as the Viking fan was turning around to walk away, the 49er fan in the black (at the beginning of the video who threw the first punch) tackled him to the ground. That’s where the video starts.”
