NFL spokesman Joe Lockart says behavior by fans like the ones who allegedly hurled racial slurs at Terrelle Pryor on Monday at Arrowhead Stadium will not be permitted in the league.
"We have no tolerance for racial comments directed to anyone," Lockhart said Wednesday, according to ESPN. "Those fans are not welcome to come back this week, next week, or any time."
The league is conducting a review into the incidents that took place Monday that saw the Washington Redskins receiver flip his middle finger at fans. Pryor claimed that he was taunted by fans calling him the N-word, which caused him to lose his temper.
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, who was on the winning team Monday night, says he wasn't surprised to hear that a fan would use that language towards a player, but he's hoping Pryor's claims are untrue.
"I pray that didn't happen, but if it did, shame on them," Johnson said Wednesday, according to 247Sports' Kirk Larrabee. "I have a lot of respect for our fans, so I would hope that that wouldn't go on because that's a bad reflection of what we are at Arrowhead.
"I don't have prove that it happened but I'm praying that it didn't happen."
