Riding high after last night’s Super Bowl XLVIII win, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith was speaking to reporters Sunday night when something truly bizarre happened: a 9/11 truther stormed in, grabbed the microphone and briefly stole Smith’s thunder.
It all happened very quickly, leaving the NFL star, who took home honors as last night’s MVP, visibly bewildered.
“I always imagined myself making great plays, but you never think about being MVP,” Smith said during the post-game press conference.
And that’s when the unidentified man ran up, took the mic and called for an investigation of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
“Investigate 9/11. 9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government,” he said before being pulled away.
Smith, looking confused, paused before saying, “All right … Is everybody all right?”
Watch the awkward moment below:
Ironically, the incident happened just days after new reports questioned whether Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is a 9/11 truther.
