Watch: Sami Zayn Gets Into Shouting Match With a WWE Fan for Allegedly Yelling Homophobic Slurs

Sami Zayn has been antagonizing WWE fans ever since he returned from injury earlier this year. But during a live event at Daytona Beach on Sunday, Zayn got into a shouting match with a fan at ringside that resulted in the fan being escorted away from the ring. Zayn was out for a steel cage match involving "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and Shinsuke Nakamura and heard the fan allegedly shout homophobic slurs. A video of Zayn confronting the fan quickly made its way online, as wrestling fans took to Twitter to explain what had happened.

After allegedly being called the slur, Zayn can be heard shouting back "Say it louder for everyone, homophobic dick!"

Zayn was applauded for standing up to the man by wrestling fans on Twitter.

"This world needs more people like Sami Zayn," one fan wrote.

Despite playing an antagonistic role on television, Zayn has been a vocal supporter for various social causes, including the Sami For Syria campaign he launched back in 2017.

As part of the charity, Zayn released a "Dream Match" ti-shirt on Pro Wrestling Tees featuring himself and his masked alter ego, El Generico. As of three weeks ago, the shirt had already generated $12,000.
