This was not a scene from the Golden Globe-winning comedy, but it very well could be a situation straight from an episode: Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, who plays half of a gay couple on the show, was escorted from his seat at Sunday’s game after a verbal altercation with another baseball-lover.
Apparently, he was not playing nice with a St. Lois Cardinals’ fan.
“Stonestreet said something to the Cardinals fan after the guy heckled a Dodgers player,” a witness told TMZ. “The two exchanged words, but we're told it never escalated to the point where either threatened the other in any way.”
Stonestreet took to Twitter to defend his actions and set the record straight after the gossip site broke the story.
“i did NOT get kicked out of the Dodgers game last night. did i get escorted to the top of the stairs by security? yes. yes i sure did.” Stonestreet posted Sunday afternoon.
Stonestreet’s rep has not commented on the incident.
Just in case you’re wondering, the Dodgers won against the Cardinals 4-3 at the game Stonestreet attended, but the Cardinals came back at Sunday night’s came to beat the home team 5-2.
Watch security escorting Stonestreet from his seat on TMZ.
