You Flip Off the Kiss Cam in Philadelphia and It’s Gonna Cost You 25,000

Dec 10, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

The Boston Celtics were in town on Friday night to take on your Philadelphia 76ers. It was a wildly entertaining affair (Evan Turner!). Most in attendance enjoyed themselves quite a bit. But one grumpy grumperson was feeling all scroodgey, namely Celtics’ big man Chris Wilcox who was shown on the kiss cam and reacted in inappropriate fashion.

For those unfamiliar, the Sixers show a kiss cam on the jumbotron at one point during every home game. To end the segment, a cameraman always pans the opposing team’s bench to see if he can get a reaction out of the visiting team.

Sometimes they play right along, such as Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe in the video above, or like Kevin Love did last week when he basically humped his teammate.

And then there’s Chris Wilcox’s move. Instead of giving the Philly crowd a giggle, he flipped the camera off — the old bird if you will.

He was later fined $25,000 for his actions. That sucks for him.

Also, this YouTube user has like 15 videos of other team’s reactions in Philly. Nice little archive.
