They didn’t come to watch football, they came here to fight. A brawl took place in the stands at an American football game after a woman slapped a man in the face.
The shocking incident took place at Heinz Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pa., During a game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Lions.

Video footage shows a woman arguing with a man in a row in front of her during the match. She seems to go further, telling him to “get the fuck out” and making contact with him as he tries to push her arm away. After he says “don’t touch me,” she slaps him in the face.
The scuffle escalated after the man attempted to push her away when a man the woman was with attempted to intervene. The fan who was slapped then takes off his glasses and hits the woman’s partner, while pushing the woman aside and or punching her.
Stadium security has come to defuse the situation as someone in the background shouts, “She hit him first.” The video stops at this point, and there is no report of anyone being kicked out of the stadium.
The video went viral on Twitter with over 9.5 million views and over 89,000 retweets. Many people looked to the comments section for their thoughts on the incident.

It is not known whether any arrests were made in connection with the brawl. Just last week, a fight at another football game between the Rams and Chargers also divided the internet as a few rows of fans began to buckle down for no clear reason.
