Noted Bengals fan, singer, show host and famous former-newlywed Nick Lachey was removed from the Cincinnati Bengals-San Diego Chargers game Sunday afternoon before he could see his beloved
brown black and orange stripes benefit from another resounding Charger failure on the field.
His crime? Being a celebrity and being a Bengals fan seating by a Chargers fan noted for giving other fans a hard time.
@lobshots yes the guy in front of him was a jerk taking crap. He does that every game. It was a bummer as Nick and his group were all good.

While most of us get a kick when a celebrity gets booted out of any venue — HA HA, YOUR PRIVILEGE GETS YOU NOTHING — it seems that Lachey’s only crime yesterday was being a Bengals fan in a sea of Chargers fans disguised as empty seats.
Typical of Lachey, he handed the situation with class and dignity responding to the incident on Twitter.
Majority of charger fans were awesome yesterday, thanks for the hospitality! Sadly, there is always one guy that ruins it for everyone…..

And before making any jokes about boy bands, his ex-wife or hosting singing shows, it’s best to remember that Lachey hails from Harlan, Kentucky, which if we have learned anything over the past couple of years might be one of the toughest counties in the nation. He might just have you over for some apple pie and show you the error of your ways.
