San Diego Chargers rookie, Keenen Allen used his Vine to send out a picture of himself enjoying some In-N-Out while wearing an Oakland Raiders hat (Credit: Keen Allen’s Vine & Lobshots.com) In April, Keenan Allen was the 76th overall pick (3rd round) for the San Diego Chargers. Apparently, Allen forgot that the San Diego Chargers play in the same division as the Oakland Raiders. This weekend, Allen tweeted a picture of him enjoying some In-N-Out. Unfortunately for Allen, he forgot that he was wearing his Oakland Raiders hat and as a member of the San Diego Chargers, that is a bad idea. After tweeting the picture, Allen faced a rather disrespectful fan base who was less than happy to see their third round draft pick in a rival team’s hat. Here are some of the responses to his picture: @utkevinacee @lobshots hes asking to get hazed during camp. — john nixon (@scottyg_123) May 19, 2013   Keenan Allen, WTF is the deal with the Raiders gear? Ass-wipe!!!!! — Bill Petty (@BillPetty40) May 20, 2013 @utkevinacee @lobshots if that’s post draft, that kid is an idiot. I won’t be rooting for him. — Justin Graham (@habitualistic) May 18, 2013 After realizing his mistake, Allen took to Twitter to issue an apology to the fans. I get it fans!!!! Won’t happen again! — Keenan Allen (@KAAdeuce1) May 18, 2013   I apologize! — Keenan Allen (@KAAdeuce1) May 18, 2013   I have to admit, this is rather comical to me. However, as a Bills fan I do not think I would be too happy seeing E.J. Manuel in a Patriots hat or Robert Woods in a Jets Hat. Still, fans have to remember that these players are kids and had to of had favorite teams in the past. At least we now know if Allen performs well in San Diego that he will sign with Oakland when he becomes a free agent.
