Deshaun Watson forced out of bar in Tuscaloosa
On Friday evening, the following video was posted of former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson leaving the Innisfree bar which is located just over a mile from Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL.
The website SB Nation reported that the Innisfree manager told them, “He was not kicked out, but we don't have any other comment.”
The original poster of the video later commented that Watson was told by all the Alabama fans in the bar that he was not welcome there.
Not everyone agreed with the treatment Watson received. A woman on the video can be heard saying to Watson, “That’s sad, sorry.”
UPDATE: Statement from Innisfree: "Over the years we have had thousands of visitors from rival schools and have always treated them fairly. Today was not any different. The unfolding of today's events were not led by our staff or anyone employed by Innisfree Irish Pubs. Unfortunately a customer attempted to invoke the right to refuse service on our behalf and after being identified, was immediately asked to leave the premises following the incident. We apologize for any inconvenience this incident caused to our customers. We appreciate anyone that chooses to visit our establishment and hope to continue welcoming sports fans for years to come."
