As the video started to go viral online, many commended the fan’s demeanor throughout the altercation. He never raised his voice, changed his stance, or became confrontational in any way.

“If the skin colors were switched…that outcome and response from law enforcement would have been ‘different’” one online commenter observed.

“The fact that we have to celebrate a Black Man for NOT exhibiting self defense is crazy,” another comment read.


Others called for the man to be found and honored by the Patriots owner himself, and let’s just say, some Christmas wishes come true.

“Someone find me this man,” one tweet read. “I owe him a beer. Entire game this lady was chirping at him for CHEERING for the Patriots in “her” stadium. Absolute shit ending for NE & she’s up in his face. He stayed calm after seeing the worst loss ever. I know I wouldn’t. He deserves some love.”


This past week, Robert Kraft reached out to Jerry Edmond to offer him the NFL experience of a lifetime. The Pats owner invited Edmond to the Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was also gifted a custom jersey, and enjoyed the game in the comfort of the owner’s suite.

In the end, Kraft thanked Edmond for keeping his cool, and for “representing our brand in a very classy way” in “an environment that could’ve been very provoking”


And as the old African American proverb goes, good for him ‘cause it “couldn’t been me.”
