I Don't Blame Reggie Jackson For Being Angry

From ESPN: Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson confirmed that he got into an altercation with a fan outside a Cooperstown restaurant Friday night but denied a report that the encounter turned physical.
The New York Daily News reported that Jackson, in Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame's induction weekend, was involved in what appeared to be a "heated, physical confrontation" with an autograph seeker. TMZ posted a 17-second video of the encounter Saturday.
Jackson told reporters that he ate dinner with a few friends at a sushi restaurant and was leaving through a back entrance when a group of fans began to gather. He said he was approached by one fan who had already gotten an autograph from him earlier Friday on the golf course.
Jackson said he used profanity and called a halt to the impromptu autograph session. He said he was getting in a car with his friends and leaving the restaurant when a scuffle appeared to break out behind him.
"I was upset because it was kind of an 'over and over' thing," Jackson said Saturday. "It's 10:00 at night -- it's time to go home. Leave us alone. So the words got heated. But as far as anybody touching someone, that did not come from me.
"I was disappointed that the yelling happened, but it's all day, all night sometimes with people. You wish those things don't happen. I've been stern before with people verbally, but you don't touch the public. In today's world, you can't do that."
For some reason, people think they have a right to bother famous people who are out to eat with their friends or they are just doing their jobs.
I have been in the Pawn Stars pawn store when the stars of the show come out to do their work and some people just get so rude that they get in the star's face for no real reason, whatsoever.
Reggie Jackson just wanted to eat with his friend and some morons think they are more important than anything else.
so, I don't blame Reggie
Jackson for getting mad at some rude people who want his autograph. 
Can't they just let the guy eat in peace with his friends?
