Superbowl MVP interview gatecrashed by 9/11 protestor

Published Add your comment

A Superbowl that was widely expected to be one of the closest in many years between the NFL's two best teams turned out to be anything but on Sunday night, with the Seattle Seahawks lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the very first time after annihilating the Denver Broncos 43-8 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

On a night when a number of Pete Carroll's men showcased their strength and superiority in the face of legendary quarterback Peyton Manning and the league's best offense, it was linebacker and former USC Trojan Malcolm Smith that was the unlikely recipient of the highly-prestigious MVP award.

On what was a mostly superb evening for the 2011 seventh-round pick, however, things got a little strange in his post-game press conference when he was interrupted by a man who grabbed Smith's microphone, demanded investigation into the 9/11 terrorist attacks and claimed that they were perpetrated by members of the US government.

The protestor then leaves the stage - presumably to be dealt with by the relevant authorities - before Smith maintains his composure and carries on with the interview.

Watch the video of the bizarre gatecrash above - with thanks to the Chicago Tribune for bringing it to our attention.
