Chris Jericho in Altercation With “Fans” Outside NYC Venue (Video)
TMZ posted a video of some “fans” yelling at Chris Jericho and Jericho yelling back outside Irving Plaza in NYC Friday night. Jericho had just appeared at a tribute show for musician David Z, who was recently killed in a bus accident.
According to TMZ, witnesses say that lots of people approached Jericho for autographs outside the venue, which he initially signed before ultimately beginning to turn people down. A couple of the fans seemed really angry at that, and got into a shouting match with Jericho.

The WWE superstar got into a heated shouting match with another man after an event in NYC on Friday night — with the two cussing each other out right on the street … and TMZ Sports has the footage.
Jericho released this statement to TMZ:
“David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night.”
“I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z.”
