Sami Zayn got himself involved in an altercation with a fan at a recent WWE live event after the fan was shouting homophobic slurs.
WWE had a live event last night at Daytona Beach which featured their SmackDown superstars. One of the matches on the card was 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt vs Shinsuke Nakamura.
Nakamura was accompanied by Sami Zayn when he made his way to the ring, but it was during this moment that the Canadian confronted a fan at ringside.
According to reports on Twitter and Wrestling Inc, the man was shouting homophobic slurs at Zayn while he made his entrance at the live event.
The fan was allegedly calling Zayn a "Canadian f****t" over and over again. Zayn confronted the fan at ringside and had to be held back by a WWE referee and official.

According to Twitter user John Betz, the fan eventually was kicked out of the show for his behaviour, and rightfully so.
No one should have to feel unwelcome at a WWE show, so it was right that this fan was removed from the arena.
Zayn has been a big supporter of causes bigger than himself, so it comes as no surprise that he stood up against this fan making discriminative comments.
He has his own “Sami for Syria” campaign, which is partnered with the SAMS Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides medical services for civilians in the war-torn area of northwestern Syria.
The Canadian could have easily ignored the incident at the live event, done his work with Nakamura at ringside, and then tell someone at the back once his work at ringside was over.
However, Zayn did the right thing by letting officials know immediately so that the so-called fan was removed from the arena as soon as possible so that everyone could enjoy the WWE event.
Everyone, no matter what race, gender, or sexual preference should be able to enjoy WWE, and it's great to see Zayn standing up for those values.News Now - Sport News
