Before writing this blog, we spent a few moments rubbing our fingers together, simulating what you may call the world’s tiniest violin.
Turns out, Pukemon (love it) can’t leave his house without being harassed, says his uncle, David Clemmens. And not only that, but the whole incident at Citizen’s Bank – it wasn’t even his fault! It was the hotdog.
David Clemmens dialed up the Allentown Morning Call and swore that his nephew is innocent. He gave the same sob story to NBC 10: "He's a good kid, and I think he just had a couple extra beers that might have got him a little sick…He accidentally vomited. He put his hand in front of his mouth and vomited on the person in front of him, the wrong person."
Then, according to the boy’s uncle, after politely holding his hand over his mouth to keep himself from vomiting on an 11-year-old girl (and failing miserably), “He was held down and he was beat up.”
Matt Clemmens is charged with simple assault, stalking, recklessly endangering another person, corruption of minors, harassment and disorderly conduct.
The “Phillies fans against Matthew Clemmens” Facebook page, which is basically a web-based center of hatred toward this guy (as is every message board after each article written of him) has 1,195 fans as of this writing. Another blog for another day may want to look in depth into the fact that with the Internet and all its glory, you literally can’t do anything anymore without being hated by people the world over (this is of course an extreme example), and know exactly who hates you, why, what they’ll do if they ever see you and what their favorite quotes/movies are.
A treasury of comments from the “Phillies fans against Matthew Clemmens” page:
“Phucking Loser Get The Phuck Out My City”
“It's not just Philly Phans either! You're hated all over. This one coming from Maine. What and idiot. Everyone knows you don't mess around with Philly fans. I had the pleasure of being stationed at PNSY 89-91, and saw many athletic events there. Keep beating down the losers. He deserved more of an ‘old fashioned philly beatdown’”
“This scumbag should do hard jail time. I commend Mr. Vangelo's restraint, because if this clown pulled this crap with my kids, he'd be happy to have the cops get him. The last thing Philly needs is another black eye”
“next time i do something wrong, ill say ‘Hey, atleast I didnt throw up on a little girl like Matt Clemmens.’”
A South Jersey man partied way too hard at Citizen’s Bank park. And he’s got the jail time to prove it.
