Tuscaloosa bar issues apology after incident involving Deshaun Watson
In a bizarre incident on Friday night, former Clemson QB Deshaun Watson was asked to leave Innisfree Irish Pub in Tuscaloosa. Watson did his part to avoid a bigger incident by simply getting up and walking away from the situation.
Though no one on the Innisfree Pub staff made any move to stop Watson’s removal, the bar still felt the need to post an apology on Facebook late on Friday night, saying all fans of rival schools are welcome in their establishment:
Those customers who “attempted to invoke the right to refuse service” may have been former Alabama players Ryan Anderson and Wallace Gilberry, as the below video emerged on Saturday morning appearing to show the ex-Crimson Tide standouts ordering Watson out of the bar:

Why Watson, who threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns in January’s title game victory over the Crimson Tide, was in Tuscaloosa in the first place has yet to be revealed, but it’s safe to say he won’t be patronizing Innisfree any time soon.
