Shocking new details have emerged regarding the spectator who was ejected from Magic Round for allegedly abusing Jackson Hastings.
According to Nine's Wide World of Sports, the fan actually threatened to kill the two young sisters of the Wests Tigers star.
After slotting a conversion against the North Queensland Cowboys in the final game of Magic Round, Hastings heard something from the Suncorp Stadium crowd.
Clearly fuming and shocked with what he'd just been subject to, Hastings took matters into his own hands an immediately pointed out the person to security as well as the ground manager.
At the time of the incident, it was reported that Hastings was badly abused by the supporter, although exactly what was said has now come to light a few days later.
Not only did the man-in-question allegedly identify Hastings' sisters by name, but he actually threatened to kill them too.
"That really got under his skin - as you can imagine it would - no one should have to cop that," a Tigers source told Wide World of Sports.
UPDATE: Hearing the individual has been charged with disorderly conduct with the offensive comments verified by independent witnesses.— Emma Lawrence (@emmalawrence90) May 15, 2022
The comments have been confirmed to me by witnesses and they are disgusting.@TripleM_NRL @NRLonNine @9NewsSyd https://t.co/w7PV5VVQco
To be fair to Hastings, he handled the awful situation very professionally and refused to bite back at the sickening comments.
Andrew Voss revealed on Fox League that the fans around the offender dobbed him in, before he was escorted from the premises by security.
“To an incident to just to wrap up something from the first half Hastings reacting to a fan,” Voss said on Fox League.
“We still don’t know exactly what was said.
“What we can tell you is that a fan was ejected at halftime, so those around the perpetrator gave him in.”
Once Hastings made an official report of the incident, security at Suncorp Stadium were quick to leap into action, escorting the man out.
It remains unknown what further action will be take, but you can imagine the bloke will probably be getting a knock on the door from police sometime this week.
