DeShaun Watson apparently run out of Tuscaloosa bar

Did a group of Alabama fans run former Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson out of a Tuscaloosa bar Friday?

A video posted on Twitter appears to show Watson leaving the Innisfree Irish Pub after talking with other patrons there.

Alabama football fans are still hurting almost three months after Watson and the Tigers stunned the favored Tide 35-31 in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, but did they have to ask him to leave the bar? The person who shot the video tweeted, "Everyone in the bar told him he was just unwelcome."

The bar denied any of its employees were involved and posted an apology on its Facebook page.

"Over the years we have had thousands of visitors from rival schools and have always treated them fairly. Today was not any different," the post reads. "The unfolding of (Friday's) events were not led by our staff or anyone employed by Innisfree Irish Pubs.

"Unfortunately a customer attempted to invoke the right to refuse service on our behalf and after being identified, was immediately asked to leave the premises following the incident."

While many social media users condemned the rude behavior of the other patrons, one Alabama fan wondered just what Watson was doing there.

Watson has not commented publicly on the incident.
