But while those acts can be attributed to poor impulse control and the heat of the moment (not too mention an unhealthy amount of alcohol; no that there is an excuse) one fan;s behavior in San Francisco--well, there is no excuse for this person at all.
I want to thank whatever slapdick threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u jackass.

The act is something that is common for black soccer players in Europe where fans like to call them monkeys and throw bananas.
What may be even more surprising than the deed is that there were some people that actually defended the act saying that it was not racist at all. Jones was not real happy with those people either.
I love how some ppl are defending the actions by someone today. Shows how u really are also. All good wit me. I just #StayHungry

Some fans did take to Twitter to apologize to Jones on behalf of the Giants fan base. We can only hope that people sitting around the guilty party had something to say to this classless nitwit. I don't know what film may be available, but if there is any chance the incident was caught on camera maybe the culprit can be caught and banned from the park.
