Eagles fan goes BESERK after Philadelphia’s Super Bowl loss as he smashes a television

It’s just a game! Eagles fan goes BESERK after Philadelphia’s Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs as he smashes the television and rips it off the wall… but is viral clip staged?

Philadelphia sports fans are known for their passionate support for their teams but one fan took it a step too far following the Eagles’ Super Bowl defeat Sunday as he smashed a television and ripped it off the wall. 

The Eagles agonizingly lost Super Bowl LVII in a narrow 38-35 defeat after Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs bounced back from a 10-point deficit at halftime. 

With the score tied at 35-35, the Chiefs bled the clock down to allow Harrison Butker to step up and score the winning field goal and break hearts across Philadelphia. 

The pain appeared to hit one fan particularly hard as his rage led to him smashing a television. 

In a viral clip, the fan could be seen stood in front of the screen watching the game. As soon as Butker’s field goal sailed through the posts, the Eagles supporter launched himself at the television.

He threw his beer can at the screen before pummeling his fists against it, causing multiple cracks. 

The other people gathered attempted to calm him down as they could be heard telling him, ‘It’s just a game.’

But that seemed to only rile him up further as he backed two men into a corner, shoving one against the other. 

He then tore his jacket off, swinging it to the floor, before returning to the television once again.

He then bashed his fist against it again multiple times before ripping it off the wall. He proceeded to stamp on it as it lay face down on the ground. 

However, some have suggested the clip was staged after it emerged the ‘fan’ was IG comedian and Streamy Awards nominee FunnyMike, who is well-known on the social media platform with 8.4million followers, according to TMZ.

They also pointed out that the energy guide label was still stuck to the screen and suggested that it wasn’t mounted to the wall at all as the set comes down too easily and appeared propped up on the mantle instead.  

In the dying minutes of the game, the score was locked at 35-35 when Eagles cornerback James Bradberry was flagged for holding JuJu Smith-Schuster that gave the Chiefs a vital first down that led them to Super Bowl glory.

The Chiefs were driving and faced third-and-8 at the Eagles 15-yard line with 1:54 remaining when Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw incomplete to JuJu Smith-Schuster. 

But officials flagged Bradberry for defensive holding, which negated the incompletion and, more importantly, gave the Chiefs a first down.

Kansas City went on to compound the heartbreak for Philly fans as Butker booted home from 27 yards. 

The TV-smashing fan wasn’t the only one to let their disappointment known as mayhem broke out in the City of Brotherly Love.

Signs of unrest surfaced almost immediately after the team’s 38-35 defeat Sunday night – with disgruntled fans swarming City Hall and clashing with cops that had been stationed throughout the city in case of such an outcome.

Police scanner audio after 10.30pm suggested police had made multiple arrests, as citizens were seen scaling lampposts, chanting ‘f*** the Chiefs’, and hurling glass bottles throughout the city’s Downtown neighborhood.

Footage circulating on social media also shows several residents lighting fireworks, with others egging on armed SWAT teams tasked with keeping the peace.

In one shocking clip, a group of Philadelphians were seen lighting fireworks, with some reports indicating the explosives are being thrown at officers.
