The Philadelphia 76ers claim they removed two fans from the stands for "their continuing disruption of the fan experience," but those fans insist they were kicked out for showing support for Hong Kong.

The 76ers and Wells Fargo Center released statements on Wednesday.

"At last evening's game, following multiple complaints from guests and verbal confrontations with others in attendance, two individuals were warned by Wells Fargo Center staff about their continuing disruption of the fan experience. Ultimately, the decision was made by Wells Fargo Center personnel to remove the guests from the premises, which was accomplished without incident," the 76ers said.

Tim Bontemps reports the 76ers were unaware of the incident until after the fans were ejected.
