A St. Louis Cardinals fan handwrote “I am Darren Wilson” on a label on the back of his jersey during a clash Oct. 6, 2014, with protesters demanding justice in the case of unarmed Ferguson, Mo., teen Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by Ferguson Police Officer Wilson in August.

A group of Michael Brown protesters who took their rally outside a St. Louis stadium were met by angry Cardinals fans shouting, "Get a job" and "Let's go, Darren," in support of the Ferguson, Mo., police officer, Darren Wilson, who killed the unarmed teen, according to the New York Daily News.

The racial confrontation was caught on video outside Busch Stadium on Monday as fans of the St. Louis Cardinals were waiting to watch their team take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in a National League Division playoff game. Protesters stood outside a smoking section near Gate 4 holding signs and chanting "Justice for Mike Brown!" One of the protesters apparently was holding a U.S. flag upside down, which many of the Cardinals fans saw as a sign of disrespect.   

"We're the ones who f—king gave all y'all all the freedoms that you have!" a female fan yelled at the protesters, the Daily News reported.

A woman asked a cameraman, Mustafa Hussein, for ArgusNews, "What are you?" He replied that he is a Marine veteran and explained to the woman that an upside-down flag is a sign of a "country in distress. And these protesters believe the country is in distress." Hussein would later post a photo of himself in uniform.

An elderly white man reportedly told the protesters, "If they'd be working, we wouldn't have this problem!" to which other fans began yelling, "Get a job!"

One fan even went so far as to put tape over the name on the back of his jersey and handwrote, "I am Darren Wilson."

According to the New York Daily News, "The 28-year-old officer has been on paid leave since the incident nearly two months ago as a grand jury decides whether he should face criminal charges for the killing."
