Hornets fan screams at Kevin Durant for standing too close to him, gets red card

This is a first.

Getting courtside seats is all about being close to the action, except for one Hornets fan. This gentleman thought Kevin Durant got too close to him during some Dion Waiters free throws and decided to let him know that he was encroaching his space.

Well, apparently telling players where they can and can't be on the court is a big no-no. The officials let security know and the fan got ... a red card?

Here's what the card said:

Now you know: if you are sitting courtside and you scream at a player for standing too close, you could get scolded in the most formal way possible in front of an entire arena and TV audience. It might be better to just wait the few seconds it will take for action to resume next time.
