David Beckham Furious at Heckling Galaxy Fan
David Beckham got into an angry face-off with a taunting fan.
The international idol struggled to contain his temper as he confronted a fan who heckled him as he entered the players' tunnel after a game.
The faceoff happened after Beckham's team, LA Galaxy, lost 2-0 to the New York Red Bulls.
As Beckham headed to the tunnel at the end of the game, the fan yelled, "Stop with the prostitutes!"
The taunt referred to a disputed magazine report that Beckham cheated on his wife, Victoria, with a hooker. The soccer star angrily denies the woman's claim, and is suing the magazine that printed the article for libel.
Hearing the insult, a furious Beckham did an about-face. He angrily strode over to confront the fan, who was actually a Galaxy supporter.
"Say it again," he said. "Say it again."
"You've got a Galaxy shirt on," he noted furiously.
Beckham went to leave, but turned once more to address the fan.
"Say it to my face!"
