Joel Embiid shoves Eagles fan over during playoff tailgate (VIDEO)

Things went well for the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend. Despite not having their MVP candidate QB in Carson Wentz, the team eked out a win over Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons to advance to the NFC Championship Game, 15-10, on Saturday.

Naturally, fans were tailgating before, during, and after the game at Philly’s Lincoln Financial Field, and even Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid stopped by to mix with Eagles fans.

That was probably his main mistake.

In a video posted by TMZ Sports, Embiid could be seen pushing over an Eagles fan as the two were involved in a game of catch. The crowd reacted poorly to the push by Embiid, and shortly after two people rushed to hurry Embiid away from the area.

No word yet from Embiid or the team regarding the scenario, but the video is definitely him and a photo posted to his Twitter on Saturday matches the outfit.

I guess when they say Philly Vs. Everybody they really mean every body.
