The Colorado Rockies have reportedly cleared a fan accused of using a racial slur towards a member of the Miami Marlins.

The internet was lit on fire late Sunday when it sounded like a fan called Lewis Brinson the n-word when he was batting, and the team released a statement denouncing the situation (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, video later surfaced that appeared to indicate the unnamed fan in question was simply trying to flag down Dingers, which is the mascot of the Rockies.

According to Steve Staeger, the Rockies told him that after an investigation, no racial slur was used and the fan was just trying to flag down the mascot.

The team also reportedly spoke to the fan in question, who confirmed that’s what happened.

I think it’s safe to say that this was the best case scenario, and I’m glad the Rockies have reportedly gotten to the bottom of what happened.

Obviously, nobody wanted the reality to be that a guy was dropping n-bombs towards players. Admittedly, I even thought that’s what the audio sounded like.

If you listen to it, it’s not hard to see how there was so much confusion.

Luckily, cooler heads have prevailed, the team got to the bottom of what happened and there’s no real reason to continue on the subject.

Hopefully, we can just let the issue die right here.
