BOSTON (CBS/AP) – Former Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas was ejected from Saturday’s Wizards game after he confronted a Philadelphia 76ers fan who repeatedly shouted expletives while flashing Thomas two middle fingers.

According to Thomas, the fan apologized when confronted and said he was upset Thomas made a free throw because a miss would’ve given fans a Wendy’s Frosty as part of a team promotion.

After the game, Thomas described the incident to reporters.

“The fan has both of his middle fingers up, and said f— you b—-‘ three times,” Thomas recalled. “So then the timeout goes, and I go into the stands to confront him. I said ‘Don’t be disrespectful.’ That calm. I’m a man before anything. Be a fan. His response was, ‘I’m sorry, I just wanted a Frosty.”
